While you may have thought binge-watching Game of Thrones was a cool way to make a living, Studio Ghibli is offering fans the job of a lifetime.

The film studio is officially hiring a digital painter to work on a new feature film animation – presumably alongside Hayao Miyazaki himself.

To be eligible, you’ll need to possess extensive 2D animation skills, be at least 20 years old and able to speak Japanese. You’ll also need to be living in Japan by May 31 to apply.

If this sounds like you, the job is offering a monthly salary of ¥250,000, and is contracted for a year and a half minimum. The official start date is October 1, 2019.

Head here to apply, or otherwise join the rest of us in waiting for the Studio Ghibli theme park to arrive in 2022.
