The Lead VFX Artist has a key role in crafting the design, execution, and implementation of effects for an epic-fantasy world. This artist skillfully produces impactful and emotional visual effects and will build and lead a team of VFX artists in AA+ game development. As a partner to the Art Director, they champion the art vision and thread the needle between artistic aims and practical considerations.
This role requires a solid understanding of AA and AAA quality art bars, 3D VFX creation techniques, and a sense for timing, impact, storytelling, and drama. This is a hands-on position, by which the Lead VFX Artist sets an example through the creation of exceptionally impactful and believable combat and environmental effects, bolstered by an understanding of current game technologies, that ignites the artists they lead to craft equally exceptional art. This lead not only creates assets and oversees the art of others, but shepherds them through production to ensure their in-game appearances are on-style and performant.
