We are Floating Rock!
A small animation studio born out of the creative powerhouse that is Wellington's Film Industry.
This is the first time that we are reaching out to find talent that can help us take the next steps in our journey to build our Studio into a place where creativity, collaboration and quality of life are our highest values.

We strive for the highest quality - so that what we do matters.
Collaboration is everything - no matter where you are in the world.
We love our craft - but are not married to it.
We discourage OT - we value work-life balance.
We work from anywhere - for the rooted or the nomads, hooray for remote studio flexibility.
We encourage personal growth - want to learn a new skill? Apply it on the next project that fits.

We are embarking on an amazing journey and this is your chance to be part of it right from the start.
Come and help us build our future!
