Knowledge of, and experience with high-end VFX for film is a plus but you must understand the limitations of real-time engines. Having a shipped game title under your belt is also a big plus, but contributions to film/tv productions will also be weighed in.

This is a crucial role for the studio and we want to find that VFX-artist who can push us to the next level.
