Boulder Media Hiring For 1st CGI Animated Film Produced Entirely In Ireland Based On 'Very Well-Known Hasbro Property'
RAC - Sunday, July 30, 2017

Boulder Media has posted a job listing a 3D CG Supervisor for an unspecified animated movie. A subsidiary of Hasbro Entertainment, up to now Boulder has largely worked in the television field. But it appears they're gearing up for a movie, which they say will be the first produced entirely in Ireland. So, what's the property? They don't say, but it's listed as a "very well-known Hasbro property." There's quite a few of those... but about two years ago we did get some news that may tie into this. Keep reading for details! Back in September 2015, it was reported that writers Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, of Ant-Man fame, would be working on a CGI movie elaborating on the origins of the Transformers on Cybertron. We've heard nothing since... but it seems that has nothing to do with the Bumblebee movie, as they aren't credited for it. So it's possible, especially in the wake of Transformers: The Last Knight's weaker-than-expected performance, that the big-budget live-action films get a break and we get the Cybertron movie after Bumblebee.

This is all speculation of course, but what is real is that if you have a whole bunch of animation experience, Boulder may want you. Here's the listing!

As part of Hasbro Entertainment, Boulder Media is building a new feature animation division. We are excited to offer a talented 3D CG Supervisor the opportunity to join our very successful and established animation studio as we expand into a new area. We will be producing the first 3D CG theatrical feature film made entirely in Ireland. The movie is based on a very well-known Hasbro property and we can’t wait to bring it to the big screen for the first time.

The 3D CG Supervisor will play a vital role in building the new studio pipeline along with the rest of the team.

The 3D CG Supervisor will bring their expertise to the technical aspects of the project while working in collaboration with the production team. As such, they serve as a key member of the project’s leadership team and help define Boulder’s pipeline. At the beginning, you will have an important role in the look development, raising the quality while ensuring the assigned areas of production have sufficient technical, capital and human resources to meet the deadline.

Determine technical approaches needed to achieve desired look and behaviors for the production.
Maintain an up to date understanding of industry best practices.
Design and maintain the pipeline workflow with the dept. supervisors, production and technology teams.
Give clear instructions to each department and set objectives while monitoring the production process, progress and results.
Drive production meetings and assist in client meetings.
Ready, willing and able to answer any questions from the production team.
Identify and eliminate potential pipeline problems before they affect production.

Thorough understanding of the various technical, pipeline and creative aspects for CG animation.
A proven leader in setting direction for a production and for inspiring and motivating production staff.
Knowledge of the post production process.
Bonus: Experience working with PBR rendering.

Bonus: Familiar working in a Linux environment.

Boulder Media is an equal opportunities employer.

Thanks to a Weibo poster, we have a series of images giving us an in-hand look at Studio Series Leader Class Grimlock. This Grimlock promises greater accuracy to the on screen design than the toys that preceded it, and if nothing else it certainly succeeds on that mark in absence of color! Along with some overview images, we've also got some direct side-by-side shots to show off how Grimlock's robot mode stacks up to various other toys. You can find all the images mirrored below.
Wholesaler NDA Toys has given us a first look at the official stock photo for Voyager Class Brawl from the second wave of the Studio Series lineup. This conveniently follows on from a leaked look at Megatron's stock photography, also from wave 2. Through this we have a nice look at the figure in its final color and production plastics, letting us know what to expect when this figure starts getting in the hands of collectors... well, sometime after April 20th, at least, as that was what we last knew as a street date for Studio Series. And it's not always out of the question to see a second product wave hit shortly after the first when a sale date is enforced! Click through to see the full size image.
Thanks to Ryan on Twitter, we have photos confirming that both the second wave Power of The Primes Voyagers (Elita-1 and Hun-Gurrr) as well as the first wave Studio Series figures are out in Canada now, at EB Games locations in or around Toronto. We've got photos from both finds below. It looks like Studio Series is not doing the best job holding to the street date we've been expecting of it, though the larger national retailers in the US at least seem to be playing along for the moment.
In a post refreshingly devoid of purple marker, the usual Weibo leaker has shared images of the upcoming Studio Series Voyager Megatron. A new mold based on Megatron's Revenge of the Fallen appearance, the figure looks quite good in both modes even if the cannon/sword assembly on the right arm reminds us of nothing so much as a crab to this very day. Keep reading for more images of Crabtank Megatron!
Yenting Lai of Facebook group TFND- Transformers Never Die has posted an extensive photo set for Studio Series Blackout! It's an impressive figure, to be sure. The backdrop included in-package is particularly nice as well, copying the desert scene where Blackout and Scorponok first made their appearance in 2007's Transformers film. We've mirrored the images here for you, so keep reading to see!
