CG/VFX Generalist


Project: Avatar Sequels

If you are attending Siggraph 2019, please text Elspeth at 8053004218 to organize a meeting.

Ideal candidates will need strong storytelling skills to build previs scenes and to build Motion Builder files for performance capture, virtual camera capture and simulcam production. Building those files will incorporate motion capture performances (motion capture data) and key frame animation. The position requires strong technical animation skills with an emphasis on attention to detail.  A good sense of animation (realistic physics based animation) and a cinematic eye are a plus.

Ideal candidates must be able to learn and adapt to new tools and workflows as we are working at the bleeding edge of virtual film production.

Experience with animation layout, previs and motion capture is preferred. We are looking for individuals who may also have strengths in creature animation, rigging or postvis.

Experience working with motion capture animation and within a real time engine/game engine is also a plus.

The project is long term and so we are looking for candidates who can commit to multiple years of work.

Candidates must be US citizens or Permanent Residence card (Green Card) holders.

Candidates must submit a reel of their work along with their resume.
