The senior Cloth TD must have a demo reel that demonstrates creation of dynamic cloth simulations and other realistic effects using nCloth/ syflex. Excellent communication skills, a strong work ethic, team player, and the ability to take direction are essential. The senior Cloth TD reports to the CG/VFX Supervisor.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
• Produce photorealistic simulations with high resolution geometry
• Develop innovative, believable and beautiful solutions to challenging and complex problems
