Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Animation have enlisted Flying Bark Productions to animate their first recently announced Untitled Avatar feature film in a newly confirmed partnership with Avatar Studios.

As a Nuke Compositor you will work closely with Lighting TDs and creative Leads in order to achieve the creative brief set out by the VFX Supervisor. You will be able to confidently use the tools or software provided, and play a critical role in the execution and delivery of the high quality visual style of the production

  • Able to manage their time allocated to their assigned work
  • Able to be organised and methodical, dealing with large amounts of shots, tracking versions and render management
  • Producing final shots with neat and well labelled node network, with reference to files in correct locations and easy to navigate filing systems
  • Being proactive and communicative with the upstream teams and production, ensuring the efficient delivery of animation layers to compositing
  • Communicate with the Pipeline team and aid in implementing improvements to the Comp pipeline
  • Able to take direction from the Supervisor/s and Lead/s, and address notes appropriately
  • An understanding of film colour space, grading, and  a superior eye for composition, colour, mood and lighting
