Lead Lighting Artist

Lighting is an important element in the creation of a game’s look and feel. An environment is not complete without the mood that is set by shadowy dark corners or bright rays across a vast landscape. In an effort to provide levels that feel realistic and enhance the overall style of the game, studios require the artistic talent and discerning eye of lighting artists.

Assistant Art Director

The assistant art director is responsible for executing tasks delegated by the art director; these may include management of personnel, disbursement of budget allowances, and overseeing art department activities on set.

Concept Artist

Within the art department of a film or television production, a concept artist aids designers in the rendering or drafting necessary to clarify ideas for the construction of props, scenery, costumes, and visual effects elements.

Model Builder

Helping to communicate the set designer’s vision through a physical representation is the model builder. In design meetings, it is understandably difficult for others to fully imagine the finished scenic product based on two-dimensional sketches. Therefore, the scale model becomes the most important and effective tool in representing the world in which a stage show will live.

Character Modeler

The process of character modeling for video games relies heavily on computer software applications that allow artists to build a three-dimensional character from digital wireframes and virtual clumps of clay. Character modelers work in the medium of polygons, which are shaped, textured, and painted with virtual tools to produce stunningly lifelike human characters and impressively stylized creatures of fantasy.

Scenic Painter

A bit of artfully applied paint can fool an audience into believing almost anything. Scenic painters are skilled in the art of deception and mimicry, transforming wood flats into a stylized Nile delta or a city square in 19th-century Seville.

Online Game Designer

Online game designers are hired to lead a team of artists, programmers, and other designers in the development of online and social games, but also serve as the project leader on the continuing improvement and management of existing titles.

Digital Kitchen

Veteran creative and Emmy Award winner Paul Matthaeus formed Digital Kitchen in 2000. The studio won an Emmy Award in 2002 for the title sequence on Six Feet Under, and again in 2006 for Dexter.

Property Master

The property master on a film or television production is responsible for all objects handled by the actors during a scene. This includes food, weapons, household items, office supplies, and intergalactic communication devices.

Titles Designer

The opening titles sequence of a film or television show is meant to set the mood for the audience and establish a tone for the presentation to follow. Depending on the budget of the production, this sequence may be very elaborate or quite simple. Distinctive titles sequences can also establish a cohesive brand among several products of the same family, as with the very similar style of all Marvel films or epics like Star Wars, Indiana Jones, or The Lord of the Rings.
