Job Description

Mill Film is a world-class VFX studio built on the belief that inclusion and diversity are integral to delivering world-class visual effects. By bringing together talented people with diverse backgrounds and experiences, we have built an industry-leading team that broadens artistic horizons and explores creative approaches to deliver outstanding VFX for feature and episodic content. Built on the Academy Award winning legacy of the original Mill Film, co-founded by Ridley Scott and Tony Scott in 1997, and supported by Technicolor's technology and global infrastructure, Mill Film is re-born for the needs of today's filmmakers – proving that inclusion powers creativity.

Layout Artists produce pre-viz, post-viz, camera and character blocking to build editorially sound sequences which subsequent CG departments use as the foundation for shot construction.
