- Proficient in Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro, and Maxon Cinema 4D
- Strong understanding of video compositing
- Ability to quickly visualize abstract ideas and emulate different graphic design styles
- Strong understanding of chroma keying
- Basic understanding of camera use on set (shutter speed, white balance, aperture, depth of field, movement, terminology); understanding of audio recording and lighting a plus
- BS degree or equivalent in the field of graphic design or a closely related field
The following skills are not essential to the position but a strong plus: proficient in motion tracking and planar tracking in Cinema 4D and After Effects; proficiency in Cinema 4D Dynamics and/or After Effects Expressions; good drawing ability, including the ability to do hand-drawn animations; and a good understanding of video formats and codecs.
