Full Time Job
Position at Industrial Light & Magic
The Jedi Academy offers a two-month placement to current-year graduating students or artists with one to two years experience in VFX. The Jedi Academy provides the opportunity for graduating artists to learn from highly skilled senior artists in the discipline of Compositing.
In this paid experience, successful applicants will be carefully placed into the compositing discipline and will provide entry-level support to that team. The successful applicants will have the opportunity to gain experience in a live production environment through training, mentorship, and real shot-work experience in a fast-paced and highly collaborative production environment.
Graduates who successfully complete the program may be offered a Junior Artist position within the studio.

• Perform all tasks associated with the compositing process, including 2D tracking, matte extraction, layering of elements, and color grading on moderately difficult shots
• Maintain the overall look, colour balance, and quality for assigned shots and sequences to create uniformity in all finished work
• Ability to work with artists from other disciplines
What We're Looking For
Applicants must provide proof of long-term eligibility to work in Canada. We do not provide assistance for relocation, housing, transportation, or work authorization for the Jedi Academy.
Applicants must have graduated from a relevant course within the last 12 months or have one to two years of VFX experience.
