Ready for a new adventure in animation?

If you'd like to join Africa's leading animation studio, bringing premium creative work to a global audience, click on our current jobs list below and see if anything on offer fits with what you're after. We are a remote-first studio and many of the jobs on offer are open to candidates worldwide.

Do you offer bursaries for those wishing to study animation?
In South Africa, the MICT Seta has provided us with bursary funding to fund selected students to study animation at South Africa's premiere animation schools. However, these students have to already be enrolled as first year students at the animation school they are studying at. They are selected by the animation school and not by Triggerfish. Funding is awarded by the school based on financial need, work ethic and attitude and is only awarded for the first year of studies, thereafter students have to continue their own funding for the remainder of their study period. We will continue to look for additional ways to support aspirant animators and visual artists, including through our own Triggerfish Academy which continues to grow in strength.

Where are you based?
Our South African studio is based on a beautiful farm in Cape Town and our Irish studio is in Galway on the Wild Atlantic Way. However many of our crew now work remotely from all around the world.

Are you hiring?
Have a look at our Careers page to see what we have on offer. If nothing fits with what you're after, register with us anyway so that our producers can look out for a position with a good fit for your skillset. Just remember to keep you details up-to-date.

We would like a media interview for publication. Who do we contact?
Wonderful! We're generally always happy to grant interviews for productions that are ready for public release or to discuss our talent development and investment programmes. Drop our Publicist an email on publicity@triggerfish.com and he'll arrange something for you.

Do you do have a internship or mentorship programme?
Unfortunately, we’re currently unable to do internships or mentorships as most of our crew are working remotely which makes it difficult to run an effective programme. Hopefully we'll have our programme back on track soon!

DO YOU ACCEPT UNSOLICITED SCREENPLAYS?
Please note, for legal reasons, we do not accept any unsolicited content such as scripts or story ideas. Triggerfish assumes ownership of and is free to use, develop, commercialise, amend, and assign all rights to any unsolicited content that may be submitted to the studio.
