As a compositor you are the last in a chain of great artists, and will have to deliver the final, awesome looking images on time. You are expected to take ownership of your work. Specifically we are looking for our compositors to be able to set up comps from scratch, or at times use an agreed upon template or method, as well as share any good solutions you find with your colleagues and leads.
We want our compositors to communicate with whomever they need to in order to do their shots. This means for example keeping track of who is your lighter, and talking to them to resolve any issues with the renders, or talking to the production coordinator if your milestone targets are unrealistic. We want our compositors to be able to add their creativity to their work and there are usually room for creative suggestions outside of the original brief.
Although years of experience are valuable, mostly we are looking for artists with a great attitude towards learning and a passion for doing quality work.
Your work will include:
Your need the following:
Solid knowledge of Nuke, our main compositing package
Very thorough knowledge of the basic compositing principles
The following are considered a plus:
Other software we use (knowledge of these are a bonus):
You get to be a pirate
Social and friendly work environment
We do world class epic stuff
Innovative and fast-paced culture
Centrally located kick-ass office
Work–life balance perks
Important Looking Pirates is an award winning visual effects and digital animation studio located in central Stockholm. ILP was founded by artists in 2007 with the vision to become one of the top international suppliers of VFX in terms of quality, professionalism and service. With amazing projects such as Lost In Space, Westworld, Black Sails, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and Star Wars: The Last Jedi in our backlog, we can proudly say that we are one of the most successful studios in the world.
During the last 12 years, we have assembled one of the best visual effects teams in the business with talents from all corners of the world. All our artists, technicians, production and support personnel are driven by passion for what we do and we always strive to push the limits of what can be accomplished.
In 2016, we moved to our new headquarters in the famous Norstedts building on the islet of Riddarholmen. The office is designed to inspire creativity and to provide the best possible work environment for creating spectacular visual effects. Almost a third of the office consists of social areas where the pirates gather to have lunch and celebratory fikas, get company updates, participate in fussball tournaments, and hang out for Friday beers.
