Texture Artist

Animation has come a long way since the days of plain white walls and two-dimensional cartoon characters. Today’s animation features deep, rich textures that make walls appear real, faces look lifelike, and even fantasy monsters seem like they could really be waiting under your bed. Much of this textural detail is thanks to the texture artist, also known as a texture painter, whose graphic art is used to define the surface qualities of a 3-D computer model. Most of the textures created by texture artists are used in video games, films, and television shows.

Match Mover

Match moving has fast become a standard visual effects technique in almost every instance where live-action materials and computer-generated imagery are combined, allowing real and virtual scenes to be seamlessly composited together, appearing as if from the same perspective. With just about every movie released today featuring at least some computer graphics, a proficient match mover can find entrance into the industry and take the first steps in a long career in filmmaking, visual effects, and the CG field.
