Notes before you Apply:

We are always interested in welcoming new members to the Black Plasma Studios team, however these are important positions.

We're looking for people who are interested in the channel itself, not simply uploading videos for easy views.

To simplify the application process, we have condensed the positions Stage 1 and Stage 2 into one animator position called BPS Animator.

If you are successful in applying for the Builder or Rigger positions, you will be given a role on our Discord and contacted when opportunities become available.
