The Third Floor, Inc. is recruiting for Previs Shot Creators.

The Third Floor is seeking ambitious artists who are looking for a golden opportunity to make their mark on the entertainment industry. By using the language of cinematography and animation in tandem to design the strongest possible sequences, a previs artist holds an impactful and highly collaborative role in the filmmaking process. The artistic sketch of the film to come, quickly produced through previs, supports effective creation, communication and realization of the project from development through to production and post.
A previs shot creator pieces together elements, sets them in motion, and “films” them with virtual cameras to create cinematic sequences that represent the creative blueprint. Nearly any aspect of a shot can be tweaked instantaneously to improve the composition or the timing of the action. Working with the previs supervisor, previs shot creators produce previs shots and sequences that help to support the director’s vision via appropriate use of camera movement, lenses, composition, staging, lighting, and editing.

The ideal candidate:

Possesses a strong sense of composition, color, animation timing, and storytelling
Animates a wide variety of subject matter from vehicles to small objects, to realistic character performances, all with a strong sense of camera animation
Uses lights efficiently
Has good knowledge of cinematic language, camera terminology and the ability to use motion blur, depth of field and other effects, to create realism
Has the ability to clean up & accentuate mocap animation
Is team oriented and able to successfully take direction from a supervisor
Is adaptable, flexible and accepting of change, often tossing out ideas and starting anew

Software requirements:

Autodesk Maya
Adobe After Effects
Autodesk Motion Builder (a plus)
