Triggerfish is hiring for Africa’s biggest Animated Feature Film, Zambezia

Cape Town-based Triggerfish Animation Studio is expanding its team for the production of "Zambezia", a pioneering CG animated feature to be produced in Africa. 

Imagine if birds could build a city, an African city…. These were the seed ideas that started an epic journey to create the biggest animated film ever made in Africa.

We believe story is paramount, therefore, since the completion of the pilot animation, a team of scriptwriters including international consultants such as Kiel Murray (Pixar), who has worked on some of the best animated stories ever written, have been perfecting the script .  We are now ready to go into production.

And now is your chance to become part of this exciting project!

We are looking to fill a wide variety of positions to build up our team of skilled and passionate individuals. We also have short term consultancy positions for very experienced individuals who may not need to be involved in the entire production timetable. The length of contract and salary will depend on the position and the applicants' experience. 

If you are interested in working on this ground-breaking project, please fill out the online application form at You must have an online portfolio, showreel or website.

Applicants should have a South African identity document and be prepared to relocate to Cape Town for the duration of their contract, as we prefer to keep our team onsite.We apologize that due to the volume of submissions we will be unable to personally respond to each applicant or inquiry. If your application is successful, we will contact you.
