  • Practical understanding of the entire post-production pipeline process from turnover to delivery.
  • Extensive production experience with Shotgun.
  • Multi-disciplinary understanding derived from working with tracking, modelling, animation, effects, look dev, lighting, compositing departments and everything in between.
  • Sound experience scheduling complex and multi-faceted projects with MS Project desirable.
  • Expert time management and prioritisation skills.
  • Sharpened tactical and creative problem solving sensibilities with a can-do mindset.
