Pūkeko Pictures are looking for a part-time production all-rounder with experience in longform animation. We are currently transitioning multiple productions from late-stage development to our production slate and we require a capable person to support our Auckland-based Head of Production.

You will be our Wellington based ‘hands on the ground’ and ‘head in the schedule’ person. You will possess common-sense, good judgement, terrific communication skills and the ability to work with a degree of autonomy. In return you will learn the absolute best practices for producing animated content, and gain skills in a rapidly expanding sector within the entertainment industry.

This role is likely to turn into a full time role as our development slate moves into production in 2022.


About Pūkeko

Pūkeko Pictures is an independent entertainment production company focused on the development and production of world class, multi-platform entertainment for a global audience. Based in Wellington, we are part of a network of creative companies that are home to some of the world’s finest filmmaking talent and technology.

Pūkeko’s physical offices are in Miramar and our technical pipeline fully supports work-from-home. We encourage our people to work in a way that best supports their wellbeing. You will need to work in the office some of the time to build relationships and keep a finger on the pulse of production, but we are otherwise flexible. 

Pūkeko produces long-form animation. It’s a fast-moving, technical process, you’ll need to be a quick learner and be comfortable using technical language. 


Production Experience

You may have experience at any level up to and including Production Manager.

You need to know how to manage schedules on a day-to-day basis. You will have your head in the detail and your feet on the ground.

You will have production experience in digital animation and understand the fundamentals of picture & sound-post.

You would be a superstar if you have experience in producing content for children and experience working collaboratively across countries and cultures.


Technical skills

You will understand the fundamentals of digital content production.

You will be broadly capable in excel. For example you’ll be able to explain the difference between DATE and DATEVALUE, and what $ means in formulas.

You will understand the different roles within a CGI team from a technical perspective,

You will have had 12+ months experience in shotgun, ftrack or MS project (or any other gantt/production tracking tool).

You will be a super-superstar if you have had exposure to long-form animation production, games engine linear content production and git/perforce/PlasticSCM software engineering workflows.
