Matte Painter / 2D and 3D Environment Artist
We are looking for matte painters / environment artists to join our VFX team on a feature film: Dragon Warriors. (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2170369/
The film is in post production, but you will be involved in the entire process from initial look development through producing final matte environments.
Your main creative strength must be in photo-real, high resolution environment creation (2D and 3D).
This position offers creative freedom in a fast turnaround environment, and the potential for teleworking (working from home). We have several workstations available for matte painters, but if you're a highly motivated individual with your own equipment and can rapidly create a high quality product, we have an established pipeline for artists who work from home.
You will be creating fantasy environments (both interiors and exteriors) for wide landscapes as well as detailed close ups. Environments will need to match environmental elements shot during production on a sound stage. Extensive 360 photographic plates of Scotland terrain will be at your disposal and will serve as a base for the final environments in many cases. You will also be involved in the design process and thus will have considerable influence in the design of the environments.
We are a small but highly motivated creative team. If you are looking for a position, where you are not just a tiny wheel in a huge machine and want to contribute creatively in a big way then this job is for you.
Key responsibilities include:
-Design of environment concepts
-Creation of CG environments and matte paintings.
-Expert use of Photoshop
-Extensive matte painting experience
-Extensive understanding of projection / 2.5D techniques
-Proficiency in After Effects
-Proficiency in Maya, 3DS, Vue or comparable 3D software platforms
