Successful candidates display a high proficiency in some and a varied skill level across the areas of model, texture, shading, look development, basic hard surface animation and the ability to composite their own work. Candidates who demonstrate themselves to be exceptional in only one area will still be considered as long as they have some experience in all others and are willing to learn.
Generalists work both individually and within a large team environment, with tasks ranging from completing everything on a small number of shots to working on specific tasks within a larger body of work.
Senior 3D Generalists will also demonstrate the ability to break down complex VFX shot work into achievable workflows using a variety of off-the-shelf plug-ins and scripts. As such, a strong technical background with the ability to modify and/or create scripts to develop workflows is key to their success.
