We’re looking for an experienced Cinematics Director who will be responsible for direction of all cutscenes in a AAA VR game, as well as pre/post-shoot work to achieve the gold standard in video game cinematics.

The ideal candidate will own storyboarding, script preparation and work in tandem with the casting director to identify the ideal cast.  To seamlessly translate the writer’s vision into reality, they’ll have extensive experience the whole way through the process – from working with the writer in storyboarding, through shoot planning and fixing takes during the shoot, reviewing rushes and ensuring their vision is borne out in the final product during post-production.

Prior cinematics direction for video games, mocap experience and a real passion for the medium is essential.  Whilst VR cinematics direction experience isn’t a must, it is a huge plus.  Additionally, previous experience working with star talent is advantageous.

This is a fantastically managed, well financed studio in Liverpool  who's turnover has doubled year on year since their inception in 2012. They are very closely aligned with the platform holders and are known as technology innovators so they’re given the latest tech before it's even a whisper in the market. Current headcount is approx.110 devs and they're looking to grow to around 150 by the end of 2019.

6 to 8 month contract, immediate start.
