Job Description

Our Client is DR Studios who have been making games for 505 games. They are currently working on a large scale Sci-Fi shooter for console and PC. DR Studios has been established for over 20 years bringing out projects on console and mobile. They are looking to expand the team for the current project looking to bring on top-talent to take the game to the next level.

As a VFX Artist, you must be able to direct yourself and heavily influence projects within a multi-discipline team; as such we are looking for someone who can bring a strong creative vision to our projects and communicate this via your developed communication and collaboration skills. You’ll have the ability to build and maintain a vision that can help compliment the look of a game, conceptualising and creating natural and realistic effects, all working in real time, whilst being familiar with and conscious of pipeline issues and limitations, as well as prioritising and optimising VFX to deliver fantastic results in-game.

Ideally you’ll have an appreciation of a broad range of art styles and the ability to emulate this through art work in engine, using your grasp of the principles of animation, dynamics and lighting. As an experienced professional, you’ll have strong planning and organisational ability, and will enjoy collaborating with engineering teams to develop new technologies, innovations and processes, implementing these into future systems as appropriate.

Skills Summary:

  • Strong Photoshop editing skills for creating texture effects for use with particle systems
  • Proficiency with 3D graphics, particle systems, physics, ribbons, shaders and post process effects
  • Knowledge of a 3D application (e.g. Max, Maya, XSI)
  • Animation experience
  • An outstanding portfolio demonstrating your particle and VFX work for AAA titles
