You will be providing face-to-face technical support and assistance to artists, as well as developing new tools and scripts - predominantly in Python - to meet the specific show requirements.

    Our talented Pipeline TDs are highly technical and demonstrate an aptitude for creative problem solving. You will be regularly required to:
    • Provide technical advice and support for artists
    • Collaborate with R&D developers and senior production supervisors to develop specific new Python tools and workflows
    • Contribute to the development and constant improvement of the Double Negative pipeline

    Our Pipeline TDs not only produce excellent work, they are also inspirational mentors and coaches to the more junior members of the Pipeline team. This ranges from formal guidance - generating tutorials and teaching materials - to informal mentoring on a day-to-day basis, and you will be supported in this role by our Pipeline Supervisors.

    Above all, you will be at the centre of some of the most exciting VFX and Animation work on projects ranging from blockbuster epics to television dramas, working with some of the most talented individuals in the industry. You will be in a fantastic position to develop your leadership skills and enhance your skills as a tool developer in a collaborative, show-facing environment.
