TMI needs a 3-D Modeler/Animator!
Description: Performs professional quality (animation and modeling) for Agency requirements using original concepts and imaginative approaches to create 3-D models, environments and animated segments requiring a high degree of skill using digital media and a variety of specialized software applications to execute complex compositions.
Critical inventive professional skills include the ability to work quickly and competently in order to produce an acceptable finished product within the available time limit, determine best model/animation fidelity and special animation effects, or an unusual use of a visual technique and specific software feature; (c) The method of how the (model/animation) will be used, or the information or artistic results desired, calls for exceptional care and skill in the use of the medium. The themes illustrated may be either concrete in nature or they may represent ideas and abstract concepts. The finished products are expected to interpret the technical or strategic message they depict in a dynamic and high professional manner. Required to have knowledge of a specialized subject matter field relative to specific Agency programs and initiatives, and will prepare (models and animations) to be used in a variety of highly visible products.
This position (the Animator) provides professional quality animation and modeling support using industry standard software and hardware (Cinema 4D, Motion, AfterEffects, etc. on Apple and Windows workstations) to develop and create hardware models, facilities and environments. This person must be able to integrate models into complex 3-D environments and animate motion, functions, text, special effects and audio.
This position requires conceptualizing customer requirements to develop creative storyboards for preliminary approvals of models and animation scenario prior to full production. This person must also be able to create high fidelity 3-D models from initial technical concept, as-well-as acquire and modify existing commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) models to achieve efficiencies.
The Animator/Modeler works seamlessly with other multimedia team members to collaborate and coordinate animated components with the video production staff to ensure effective cost, schedule and performance for finished products in a high pressure, short response environment.
The Animator/Modeler will have advanced knowledge of design and model creation process to ensure efficiencies in modeling fidelity and animation set-up to save time and resources during rendering process utilizing 64 node render farm. Must be eligible for Top Secret personnel security clearance.
