Who we are:

A+C Studios is an animation studio specialising in stop-motion and 2D animation. We are a team of ambitious animators, storytellers, technicians and model-makers. We combine hand-crafted, traditional animation techniques with the latest digital technologies and software to create award-winning animated content. We have our own studio space in a beautiful Victorian building, The Old Laundry, in Margate.  We produce scripts, storyboards, sets and puppets, animation and visual effects to take an idea from script to screen. To date, A+C has produced animated content for clients including LEGO, American Express, British Airways, Sainsbury’s, trivago and Oreo to name a few. Our work has been broadcast on TV, cinema and online. These projects have been completed through a combination of working directly with brands and through international advertising agencies.

This is a full time position based in our seaside studio in Margate, Kent. We have a studio dog called Archie, who is also here full time, so being comfortable around Bull Dogs is essential.
