Lighting Artist

In the fields of visual effects and digital animation, as with live-action, lighting is an important element that creates mood, depth, and realism in a scene. Whether producing a fully animated film or enhancing a filmed sequence with the use of computer-generated imagery, lighting artists put some of the last finishing touches on the project. 

Previz Artist

A previz artist is a skilled generalist with considerable experience in digital animation and a keen eye for cinematography. He or she is a member of the visual effects team who is responsible for creating previsualization animatics during pre-production. At the request of the director, animatics are used to plan various iterations of a complex scene, providing the director with a rough representation of character blocking, the environment, digital effects, and other cinematic elements.

3-D Scanning Technician

Three-dimensional scanning is a process by which people, objects, or environments are analyzed by a device that can transmit that data for constructing digital 3-D representations of the subject. This process differs from motion capture.

Sequence Supervisor

A single visual effects sequence is often the work of dozens of artists, all contributing assets through processes of motion tracking, match moving, compositing, lighting, and animation. It is the role of the sequence supervisor to ensure that the work of each artist comes together seamlessly, producing a polished, finished product.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

WB Games is a division of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group, under the umbrella of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. The company is a publisher and developer of interactive entertainment properties, including games for console, PC, and handheld platforms. Warner Bros. is a division of Time Warner, Inc.

Method Studios

Method Studios is an award-winning visual effects group based in Los Angeles, Calif., which serves clients in feature film, television commercials, and game publishing.

Animation Layout Artist

In computer-aided animation, a layout artist serves a similar function to a cinematographer; this person is responsible for determining the shot’s frame, camera angle, camera path, and lighting of each key animation scene. While the camera is virtual, and an artist, instead of a gaffer, fills in the lighting, the principle is essentially the same.

Associate Animation Director

Similar to how a film or theatrical director coaches the performance of actors and blocks the movement of the scene, an animation director working in video game development is responsible for guiding animators to create lively, expressive characters that evoke real emotion and provide the player with a heightened game experience.

Walt Disney Animation Studios

Walt and Roy Disney founded the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio in 1923. Known today as Walt Disney Animation Studios, it is the oldest subsidiary of the Walt Disney Company. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was released in 1937 as the first full-length animated feature film in English and Technicolor.

Industrial Light & Magic

When George Lucas began development on the first film in the Star Wars saga, he concluded that the available filmmaking technology was not adequate to fully realize his vision for the story. As a result, he founded the Industrial Light & Magic visual effects studio in 1975. Two years later, the studio won the Academy Award for visual effects on Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. It was announced in October 2012 that Walt Disney Company would purchase Lucasfilm for $4 billion.
