Who We Are

Framestore combines talent and technology to bring life to everything we create, whether in film, TV, advertising or immersive experiences. Driven by creativity and inspired by the future, we set out every day to reframe the possible.

The Role
As senior FX Artists, the job involves creating realistic simulations for particles, rigid bodies, fluids, cloth, fur, and hair using tools like Houdini and Maya. We focus on applying lighting and shaders to enhance these effects, collaborating closely with Lighting Technical Directors to refine the final look.
