Are you interested in working for a growing, independent, award winning studio? This opportunity involves
working in a strong, R&D supported pipeline, a friendly and collaborative environment, and with a group

• Work with the matchmove team to maintain continuity between shots, and troubleshoot problem
shots
• Under the direction of the project Supervisors, the Matchmover will set up the technical and
aesthetic approaches of the matchmove work for a shot, sequence, or even an entire aspect of a
show

THIS IS WHAT WE REQUIRE:

• At least 5 years’ experience with a high-level film-based camera tracking pipeline (most likely
Maya/Boujou based)
• Preferred experience with 3d Equalizer software-tracking native plates and solving for distortion
as well as solving lensgrids and plate dewarping
• Strong understanding of on-set photography and film and how various camera rigs create camera
movement in live action plates
• Fully understands an “iteration intensive” shot pipeline
• Some scripting ability in MEL and python is an advantage
• Knowledge of Maya and Nuke a plus
• Located in Vancouver, BC
