Visual Effects Specialist 2D/3D

The visual effects specialist (2D/3D) is an illusionist, and computer software is his favourite tool. On his computer, he receives the raw images (real shots, animated sequences…), to modify them according to the director’s will. At the center of the FX department, the visual effects specialist is entrusted with missions that are often very diverse, whether he works on a film, a video game or a commercial.
