Photon is a full-service visual effects company with facilities in Australia and New Zealand. Photon’s visual effects and animation teams service feature film and high-end television drama productions worldwide.

We are engaged as a major visual effects vendor on a high-profile, NZ based feature film with international appeal. We are currently assembling a fine artistic and technical team with demonstrated feature film experience. We are advertising on mattepainting.org, due to the artistic nature of this production and the creative skills required for the VFX Supervisor role.

The immediate opening is for a VFX Supervisor with strong on-set experience & Art Directing experience. This is a heavily cg dependent feature incorporating significant amounts of live action elements. A thorough understanding of the 3d & 2d pipeline is essential. Hands-on experience in this area as well as compositing is advantageous. This is not a job in which you will be sitting back and advising from a distance. We are looking for applications which indicate a more immersive, artistic approach. Previous experience in roles such as a VFX Supervisor, Art Director and CG Supervisor on high-profile feature films will ensure your application is placed at the top of the list.
