Hey I'm Canadian I live on Vancouver island I was wondering what's the best way to work for big name companies like the one you work at if the place you live in like myself has no animation jobs in person is it possible to work for these companies by computer?
Not sure I entirely understand… But you are in luck because there are many animation companies based in Vancouver which you can apply for. Some are DHX, Bardel Entertainment, Rainmaker, Atomic, Titmouse, and Sony Imageworks. There are also SFX studios around the city if that’s what peeks your interest! It’s a pretty hopping spot for our industry :)
If you mean is it possible to work for companies like CN that are based in Cali without having to move from your current location, then yes it is possible to do outsource freelance for such companies. If you do obtain such an opportunity, your employers will need to aquire a tax form called a W8-BEN (you’ll need it for your records, too). It’s a specific tax form the United States need for foreign outsourcing. No biggy.
