Position Overview

Reporting directly to RSP’s compositing leads, you will be responsible for creating multi-layered composites for live action feature films. Applicants presenting highly realistic composites (over stylised composites) in their portfolio, will have their application reviewed with priority. RSP is a Nuke based effects facility operating in a Linux system environment. All candidates must have extensive experience with Nuke and be comfortable working in Linux.
You are a professional artist who works collaboratively with your team and those working in other departments. You are an excellent time manager and forward thinker who delivers to schedule and to brief. You have previously been responsible for creating complex composites that incorporate naturalistic effects simulation, environments and matte painting and native live action elements.
Your ability to own your delivery is highly regarded by your previous supervisors. As a professional compositor, you continually provide confidence to your production team through regular updates. You maintain clarity and focus when crunch time hits and know what is expected of you. You maintain a good working relationship with artists that are delivering to you from other departments and are proactive in resolving issues that may delay deliveries.

* Review and QA your work for internal and external delivery ensuring it hits creative and technical notes.
* Ensure continuity is upheld across shots and sequences.
* Develop and maintain a working relationship with 2d and 3d artists and technicians.
* Work in a manner that allows other compositing team members to pick up your work if necessary.
* Contribute to creative and technical conversations, with a view to raising the quality level of the final image.
* Manage your workload. Advise your lead of any obstacles which may affect delivery quality, timeliness or budget.
* Promote a collaborative and enjoyable workplace influencing morale, fostering purposeful discussions and a positive work ethic.

Required Skills and Experience

* Minimum 5 years creating high-end composites for live-action feature films (that’s for the seniors) and 3 years experience for the mids.
* Expert user of Nuke.
* Utilitarian knowledge of other discipline software such as Maya, Houdini and industry standard tracking
