Digital Matte Painter

Description

FuseFX Vancouver is currently searching for Digital Matte Painters to join our creative team. The primary focus of this position is the creation and integration of photo-realistic matte painting for episodic and feature projects. The candidate will work with a team of professionals and support artists, producers, and supervisors. Candidates with a visual effects background and experience in episodic television production will be highly preferred.

FuseFX is an Emmy-award winning visual effects and animation studio focused on producing photo-real digital effects for feature film, episodic television and commercials.

A FuseFX Digital Matte Painter is responsible for painting/creating photo-realistic digital images then applying those images to geometry in a 3D environment with consistent and seamless results. The responsibilities of the Digital Matte Painter include:  reviewing client/company notes to determine the type, placement and number of matte painting elements required; examining the plates, clips and stills of the background and/or principal action, as available; examining and evaluating the look of computer graphics – animation, 3D modeling and technical effects – in an effort to integrate the digital matte painting; preparing tests of proposed matte paintings to show to the VFX Supervisor and/or client to apprise him or her of the progress and synchronization of the matte painting work; and finalizing and integrating the final elements.

The Matte Painter must be highly experienced with digital knowledge of the platforms and of the various software programs utilized in CG work – principally, Photoshop image manipulation, as well as competency in a 3D modeling software application such as Maya.  A working knowledge of a compositing package such as Nuke is also very helpful to have.  Knowledge of cameras, lenses, issues of perspective and parallax are necessary, as well as a demonstrable ability to create photo-realistic imagery with digital tools.
