Animation Supervisor


Double Negative Visual Effects

Position at DNEG

The Role 

DNEG Sydney offer a Flexible WFH Policy 

Working closely with the Head of Animation, our Animation Supervisors play a huge part in maintaining DNEG as a leading player in live action VFX animation work. We rely heavily on our Supervisors to manage and supervise our animation team from juniors to leads.

Collaboration at DNEG is vital to produce high quality work and our Animation Supervisors work closely with directors and VFX Supervisors to develop the performance of characters and creatures and ensure the continuity throughout the show.

The animation team at DNEG is a tight knit department and it’s hugely important that the team enjoys the work they are undertaking and aware of the director’s vision. Our Animation Leads are there to support the supervisors and assists with casting shots to the team when needed. Animation Supervisors are also the point of contact for any animation requests from other departments. This includes the Build team to ensure the models are suitable for rigging and the Rigging department to guarantee the rig meets the animator’s need to control, functionality, usability and performance.

DNEG is continuously focused on improving our pipeline and we value input from all our Supervisors. By working closely with our R&D and Pipeline teams, it’s important our Animation Supervisors are vocal in their thoughts and suggestions to aid the delivery of high-quality animation.
