  • You will work in our Film production team of highly talented camera operators, sound recordists, assistants, 3D environment creators, colourists, producers and directors.
  • You are highly knowledgeable with real time 3D graphics solutions – such as ‘Unreal Engine’ and are skilled at the setup and configuration – for use with chroma key and other real time filming elements.
  • You are very comfortable in a studio environment and have the ability to ensure successful calibration, operation and delivery of tracking and lens encoders while working with a full crew, including producers, camera operators and directly with our clients.
  • You are adept in the configuration of a variety of cameras – including Sony, Canon and Panasonic PTZs.
  • You are a creative individual who can demonstrate your contribution to successful studio and location filming, and a desire to input with suggestions during the planning and rehearsal phases, which elevate the final films to the highest possible level.
  • Your technical knowledge will demonstrate that you have mastered a variety of configurations, including the use of camera tracking technology and you will be fully confident to liaise with the wider team, to ensure correct supply of pre-produced assets and the ability to load and test this content, as well as returning tracking and visual/audio data to the graphics team upon the conclusion of a session.
  • In addition to a strong level of experience with Unreal, you are also aware of Aximmetry / Zero Density software and setup of 3D models for use within a live environment.
  • You are on a continuous quest to learn and better yourself through collaboration with others and mastering your craft.
  • You are a highly motivated, self-starter who can work independently as well as part of a team.
