Senior Compositors – VFX, NSW

Looking for an opportunity to step up into some responsibility and career growth? Australian VFX studios like our client, based on the continent’s sunny east coast, offer the chance for you to become much more than a cog in a wheel.

Compositing in Nuke to the highest standards of world-class photorealism, you’ll have the same opportunities to work on high-profile tentpole features as you would in a big multinational studio.

The difference? Well, you’ll know the name of everyone you work with. You’ll be surrounded by a team that knows you, too, and cares about you and your professional development.

We’re looking for a team-focussed Senior Compositor. Our client is looking for artists who want to come to work in the studio, contribute to the team and the culture, and grow with them into the future.

If this sounds like you, you have at least five years of experience compositing on world-class features, and a reel that demonstrates your eye and your technical expertise. Hit the “apply” button at the bottom for a confidential discussion.
