The Technical Artist will be part of an engineering team that will have the critical and challenging responsibility of supporting the creative VFX team in our newest product line: integrating brands and products into ready for broadcast television shows (in this sense, we are a “post-post production” solution). You can see examples of our work here: https://triplelift.com/ctv. These placements include a mixture of 2D elements (think “ads on billboards”) and 3D elements (think “bottle on a table”). We need a technical artist that wants to build and support an insanely high volume, highly automated 2D/3D compositing system for on-demand product placement. You will be working at the intersection of cloud, VFX, and computer vision.

  • Model and texture product and brand objects
  • Create referencing structure between 3D product masters and variants (e.g. create separation of concerns between mesh, textures, and mesh modifiers)
  • Create parametric controls for 3D product variants (e.g. open cereal box, closed cereal box)
  • Develop parametric modeling controls in Maya (e.g. make the potato chip bag empty, make it full)
