Adapt your comp setups as the brief evolves, diagnosing and resolving any issues with your own Nuke script.
Review and QC your work for internal and external delivery ensuring it hits creative and technical notes.
Ensure visual continuity is upheld across shots and sequences.
Work with lighting team members as necessary in order to meet compositing objectives.
Develop and maintain a working relationship with 2d and 3d artists and technicians.

Promote a collaborative and enjoyable workplace influencing morale, fostering purposeful discussions and a positive work ethic.

Required Skills and Experience

Expert knowledge of Nuke and a thorough understanding of the math behind comp operations, especially Nuke scripting and tool development.
Utilitarian knowledge of other discipline software such as Maya, Houdini and industry standard tracking software.
Superior level of attention to detail and a strong understanding of colour theory, LUT’S, composition and both film and digital capture formats.
