As a service animation studio, we have worked in almost every style of traditional animation from gritty anime to feature animation to web-based cartoon animation.

We are at a fever pitch for animation and we are looking for the best talent to come and join our team. 

Powerhouse Animation is looking for talented storyboard artists to work on upcoming animated series like Mattel's Masters of the Universe: Revelation.

In this role, you will work closely with directors and supervisors to transform scripts into epic animatic sequences that convey drama, action, and occasionally comedy.
