More details about this position:
Are you yearning for your next feature animated project?? A project that’s longer than a few months? Are you tired of being part of huge team where you feel just a gear in the process? Or are you a lead artist looking for a step up in your career? Come join arx anima, a multiple award-winning studio! We are looking for you; a Lighting Supervisor that will be working hand in hand with the Director of Photography and the Compositing Supervisor in order to create an extraordinary team.
We are arx anima based in Vienna's 5th district and have been producing animation cinema productions for years. We also have the courage to try every new technical challenge and innovation.
Be it pioneering in lighting with Houdini Solaris / USD workflows, the realization of a high-end MoCap studio in our basement or the construction of the largest render farm in Austria. And besides all the R&D, features and series we love to work on creatively animated commercials and other service work. For example we just revived Mozart through an immersive 360° art projection about Vienna in his era.
What are we looking for?
Besides the technical and artistic understanding expected from a Lighting Supervisor, we’re looking for someone striving to be a leader by example, by putting the needs of your team in the center and leveraging their strengths. Are you comfortable creating timelines for your team that are realistic yet efficient? Do you want to make a difference rather than being a number out of many? You’re a great communicator and an even better problem solver? You envision new workflows and processes, and do you want to do it in Houdini Solaris (the very new and hot lighting system)? As generic as it sounds, you think outside the box? Well, it’s you we’re looking for.
What will you be working on?
