Nimble Collective Invites Animation Artists to Apply as Beta Testers

28 Nov

Nimble Collective is launching its Beta program!

IT’S HAPPENING! They are opening up their animation collaboration platform for a limited public release. Creators of all kinds are invited to fill out an application for a chance to get their hands on the future of collaborative animation creation.

Submit your application today!

Everyone is encouraged to apply, and the ideal candidate is an individual or small team with a strong idea or existing project they are working on. We are also looking for people who want to be ON a team and have some skills under their belt (animators, lighters, layout artists, etc.) to test out different aspects of the pipeline.

Help us create the future of animation by creating, collaborating, and providing valuable feedback on Nimble Collective’s platform.



The startup, founded by a stellar team of animation pioneers and technologists, is aiming to reinvent the animation content market by offering studio-caliber capabilities without the costly infrastructure.

Initially, a small pool of applicants will be chosen for this limited public beta, but Nimble plans to expand the testing over the next several months. Ideal candidates will be those with a strong idea or existing project (individuals or teams). Nimble also is seeking those who want to be part of a team and who have skills in animation, lighting, layout, writing, etc., to test various aspects of the animation platform.

Nimble’s virtual streaming platform will allow creators to design, collaborate, and distribute their content on any computer using only a web browser and internet connection. Its pipeline will offer parallel capabilities as established studios, who have invested extensively to create and maintain their own infrastructure. Whether projects are 2D or 3D, teams can seamlessly work together to model, rig, texture, light, animate, render, composite, and edit.

Interested beta testers can submit their applications here: cloud.nimbl­
