• Produce complex models to a high standard with a thorough understanding of shape, scale and form.
• Work within and produce topology and wire frames for environment models.
• Produce accurate UVs for models for use in downstream departments.
• Produce highly optimised meshes that can be rendered and displayed efficiently for downstream departments such as Rigging, Layout and Lighting.
• Assume responsibility for ensuring assigned work is produced to an appropriate standard of quality within the scheduled timeframe and deadline.
• Maintain good communication with the Model Lead.

What you bring:
• A minimum of 2 years' experience with VFX/Animation software tools and processes for TV and/or animated feature films.
• 3+ years' experience in modelling.
• Experience in modelling stylised environments.
• Proficiency with Houdini, Maya and Z-Brush.
• Proficiency in environment modelling techniques and topology.
• Solid understanding of proper edge flow and polygon density.
• Solid understanding of the topological requirements of subdivision surface for both static and deforming models.
• Good understanding of industry standards, conventions, and formats to enable successful completion of work.
• Proven technical and visual skills with an understanding of art and design within an animation environment.
• Excellent attention to detail and the ability to abstract and interpret design down to its fundamentals.
• Strong organisational and time management skills.

What you'll need to include on your application:
• Turntables, with wireframes, of environment models.
