‘Set!’ Rotoscoping Course 2019

Are you a new graduate, or someone with a small amount of professional experience in digital production, that is aiming for a career in Compositing? Rotoscoping is the stepping stone to that career, and our Rotoscoping Course is a great way to get started.

Best of all, it’s free.

Our selection process is competitive as we want to make sure that this is the right direction for you, as much as we want you to be the right person for our training. This course is part of Animal Logic’s ‘Ready! Set! Go!’ Learning and Development Program. The course will be run twice in early 2019, the first session starting from late February and going to mid-March, the second from late March to mid-April.

The reason we run the training is that we will need a large crew of rotoscope artists for our next show in 2019. Through the training we select the artists best suited to the work we have coming up and offer those people a position in the roto team. Interested?

What you’ll get to do:

  • Attend a four week course, full time, 5 days a week.
  • Practice on real production shots (from old shows).
  •  Progress naturally towards a Compositing 2D based career path with our Nuke based training.
  • Experience Roto training, along with some basic compositing techniques, tracking, keying and a bit of the 3D camera system.

What you bring:

  • Some knowledge of and experience using Nuke.
  • Art based skills, not just technically based software skills.
  • A desire to learn and excel in the disciplines of rotoscoping and compositing.

What you need to include in your application:

Please provide a resume, demo reel and shot breakdown. If possible we would to see the following on your reel:

  • Roto or compositing examples with any software.
  • Examples of work created in Nuke.
  • Photography/art work/design/concept/illustration/life drawing examples.
  • Whilst we conduct this training in preparation for upcoming projects, completing the training does not guarantee you a role on our next project and unfortunately we cannot guarantee when the next project will commence.

Please register your interest if you are an Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident only.
