Matchmovers

London – Film

Description

Trackers/Matchmovers are responsible for creating CG cameras and other motion files that adopt the same movements as the original background plate. They may also be responsible for modeling geometry in the background plate to allow reconstruction of the static surroundings. This enables the live action to seamlessly interact with the CG elements. The motion files created (camera, object or body track) are then passed down to other departments via the VFX pipeline.

Responsibilities:

Creating motion files, including a camera and/or the object, that match the original background plate photography
Geometric reconstruction of important static objects in the scene
Reconstructing the placement of motion files (camera or object track) in the 3D set in order to quality control the accuracy of each track
Collaborating with other departments as required to ensure that the CG elements are seamlessly incorporated into the shot
Rendering wireframes of the scene geometry to be rendered and composited over the original plate to help judge the accuracy of each track
Work well in a team environment and take direction from the Lead and Production team

Essential Skills:

An educational background in Computer Graphics, Animation or another related course
A strong understanding of the basic principles of computer graphics
Basic knowledge in Maya, Linux and a compositing package
Good communication and team working skills
The ability to efficiently meet deadlines
A good understanding of photography and the effects of different lenses on perspective

Desirable Skills:

Mel and/or Python scripting skills
Native stereo experience
