Currently employing over 60 employees between three studios, the company continues to steadily expand as it pursues not only more, but larger development projects.
I'm very interested in this position, but I have a question. Could you possibly provide any more information on the licensor style?
Thanks Devil bunny, the same question was running through my mind. I may or may not be able to produce in the style needed. Could we please just get a quick snippet or brief, general sort of look the licensor is looking for?
this may sound snappy, but thats not my intention.
but always be pro-active in your own research even pre-commission, if a company is named, look them up.
in this case follow the email domain, blacklanternstudios.com .. while the commissioner is seamless interactive they mention in the post it is wholly owned by blacklanternstudios, and there is a big chance that the same licenses are worked on.
(in this case, dr.seuss, dora etc.)
