The ideal candidate demonstrates familiarity with the planning and execution of photographic elements for visual effects. These areas include essential camera operation, scene data collection, CG integration, miniature and forced-perspective photography, blue- and green-screen photography, use of motion control technology, set protocol, and the planning and construction of special effects rigs for visual effects.
