Layout Artists
- 3 - 6 Months Contract

Are you a creative layout artist with experience who can help realise a director’s brief and cinematic vision?  We have work on a variety of projects starting as soon as possible.

What you’ll get to do:

  • Responsible for helping establish the cinematic staging and camera positioning as guided by the brief.
  • Ability to pose and/or roughly animate characters.
  • Interpret story boards into motion within a 3d environment.
  • Ability to work within a production schedule, delivering shots and/or sequences to the editorial department.
  • Ability to provide the technical set-up of shots to departments further down the production pipeline (e.g. Animation).
  • Be open to direction and have the ability to embrace change.
  • Work within a team of layout artists under the supervision of a layout lead.

What you bring:

  • A demonstrated strong understanding of staging, composition, camerawork and editing.
  • Have previous experience working on a CG production.
  • Have a strong working knowledge of Maya (knowledge of XSI a plus).
  • Ability to multi-task, prioritise and problem solve.
  • Have an excellent attention to detail.
  • Be willing to learn, and contribute to the success of the team and the project.
  • Possess excellent organizational and verbal communication skills.

What you’ll need to include in your application:

  • Display a strong reel that shows examples of work done in a 3d computer generated environment.  Within the reel if possible it would be good to see examples of entire sequences, not just single clips.  Where possible a storyboard animatic, followed by layout and then through to final finished sequences.
