Director / The 3D Project Manager

Dans le cadre d’une production 3D, le réalisateur 3D (également connu sous le nom de chef de projet 3D) est LA personne au cœur du projet. À la fois artiste, technicien et pilote, il suit les diverses étapes du projet, de sa réflexion à sa conception, dont il maîtrise parfaitement les subtilités.

Professional quote

At Illumination MacGuff there is around 90 people from the school ESMA, from all the France. For this students, the integration is easy : between their short film of end of study and the exercices along their learning. They can work inside the team and a pipeline of animation. We watch this school very close because there is a good formation and talented students.

True team leader, the 3D director is the ultimate reference in a 3D project. In direct relation with the production, he chooses the members of his team.

THE ROLE OF THE 3D DIRECTOR

True team leader, the 3D director is the ultimate reference in a 3D project. In direct relation with the production, he chooses the members of his team (storyboaders, character designers, 3D animators or special effects supervisors…), who will collaborate under his direction.

Before the project, he refines the script, gathers and briefs the various participants in order to transmit his intentions and the guidelines he has defined in the finest details (characters, set, light, shooting angles…). During the realization phase, the 3D project manager closely follows each interlocutor, both artistic and technical, which he will guide along the project. Finally, in post-production, he follows the editing and calibration, bringing his precious expertise in the final result of the project.

HIS SKILLS

Multi-talented, team leader and well-organized, the 3D project manager is subject to many requirements (time, budget and quality). His strong personality and his extensive knowledge give him all the necessary tools to succeed.
