Reports To: Head of 3D
Key Purpose of the Job:
To use the appropriate tools and
techniques to replace or extend photo real digital environments. We
would expect a range of skills in 3D and 2.5D including Modelling,
Texturing, Look Development, Lighting, Digital Matte Painting and
Reprojection. The use of Maya, Nuke, Mari and Clarisse is also required.
Needs to Do:
Developing methodologies for creating digital environments that:
Achieve the goals of the VFX Supervisor and other supervisors e.g. Sequence, Environment.
Produce photo realistic results.
Match the plate photography.
Make efficient use of resources such as rendering.
Ensure consistency throughout a sequence of shots.
Creating photo-realistic assets including models, textures and digital matte paintings.

Knowledge of Clarisse an advantage.
Good understanding of compositing.
working with shoot data including photographic and reference data,
HDRIs, Photogrammetry and Lidar.Experience developing concept art into
photo real environments.
Experience with procedural city generation and scattering tools an advantage.
knowledge and understanding of the natural world (Geology, Geography
and Meteorology) and Architecture (Design and Engineering).
Needs to Be:
Good collaborator and communicator.
