View Full Version : BSG-75 VFX (Battlestar Galactica The Series) Now accepting Resumes and Demo Reels

12-08-2005, 07:13 PM
Is currently accepting resumes and demo reels from digital VFX artists who are well versed in Lightwave 3D, Digital Fusion, Combustion and other standard productions tools used in creation of the Sci-Fi Series – Battlestar Galactica.

Applicants should posses a solid understanding of all aspects and areas of NewTek’s Lightwave 3D with a focus on particle and HyperVoxel based VFX elements combined with mechanical and physics based “space” flight animation techniques. Experience in 3D camera work and light rigging is very valuable as well as a background in previs and shot development, working with lead animation artists and supervisors to produce scenes that are story driven.

The ability to work well in a team environment as well as on there own conducting special projects is highly desirable. While production experience is not absolutely required, awareness of production pipeline and workflow is helpful as well as flexibility in the form of being able to jump from shot to shot as required and directed.

Along with Lightwave 3D, VFX artists who submit their resumes and reels should be familiar with the use and functions found in compositing software such as (in order of preference) Digital Fusion, Combustion or After Effects, using them to produce final shots or previs segments blending 3D and 2D. Knowledge of NLE’s such as the VideoToaster4.5, Adobe Premiere, Avid and Final Cut Pro very handy but not required.

While we are accepting resumes and reels from artists around the world, extra consideration will be given to those who live in, or are able to relocate to the Vancouver, BC, Canada area.
