wow, you need a serious update. That list is lacking severely many many houses. Apparently you think the world ends up in Canada :D

From the top of my head, Double Negative, Digital Domain, Dreamworks,Rhythm&Hues, Sony Pictures Imageworks, Dr. D Studios, Blue Sky Studios, Axis Animation. I´m sure there are many others I´m missing...

No everywhere is good. I wrote those in Vancouver because I didn't know others in Canada.

Why did you cross MPC Van? Is it closed?

They don't use houdini as far as I know.(I had a interview a while back as well as know a few people working there.

MPC is a Maya house, but I have used Houdini with them before on a commercial in LA. Maya couldn't handle the type of volumetric work we needed.

Good to know that about MPC.

@static, I saw that too but why are those jobs' salaries listed as hourly? Are they contract-based?

Also when did they start ILM Vancouver? I didn't know it existed before, until I saw their job ad at the sidefx forum recently.

yep.I hope they can find enough houdini tds and artists for some houdini loving .I think DD Vancouver got quite a lot of houdini ppl in the city. :ph34r:

@madneto

the typical offers are contract-based everywhere in the industry unless you are sticking with one studio long enough to get a staff offer.

Words on the street is that ILM is only in Van for one project and gonna fold back .I hope that they stick around because having one of the biggest studio sucking in a lot of talented for a project and leaving a saturated workforce after the project will leave no good to the city.

Digic's quality is one of the best IMO. Good that they are using Houdini as well :)
