Many people (even some very seasoned industry veterans) are suprised to find that one of the world's most successful feature animation studios is nestled in the wooded hills of Greenwich, Connecticut. We are footsteps away from scenic Westchester County and the gorgeous Hudson River Valley - and yes, the greatest metropolis on earth: New York City.
BUT WHAT IS IT LIKE AT BLUE SKY?
If you’ve ever worked at a major animation studio, you’ll know exactly what to expect when walking in the door at Blue Sky.
Artwork, movie posters and funny sketches line the walls. Desks proudly display action figures, plush toys, movie memorabilia and other bits of eclectic nerdom. Some animation cubes have been entirely rebuilt as replicas of the sets of our movies. A PA might whiz by on a scooter. On breaks, co-workers play spirited rounds of table tennis, pool and Foosball with the athletic fervor of a Yankees-Red Sox game. For the tamer among us, we offer figure life drawing classes after hours as well as yoga sessions during lunch (Zen is no joke during crunch time).
You'll also find that much of our culture surrounds 30 years of tradition. Each year we look forward to events such as the Blue Sky Talent Show, Halloween Costume Contest & Kids' Trick or Treat event, the Craft Fair, Bake-Off Competition and the highly anticipated wrap party where the entire crew celebrates taking the latest feature film across the finish line in New York City. These are just to name a few!
We are so much more than an animation studio, we’re a community. You’re just as likely to find us agonizing over a single detail in a shot as you are to see us out together for someone’s birthday on a Friday night. Producing incredible computer animated films requires talent and commitment, but it also requires camaraderie. That’s why our workplace is so full of fun perks, a creative environment and of course, a never-ending supply of coffee.
Seriously, there is never too much coffee.
