The Compositing Greenlight program will help successful candidates learn how to become an accomplished artist by working with our award-winning Compositing team.

You will be guided through industry-standard techniques in roto and prep, all on shots from our latest and current shows. From there we will upskill this fundamental knowledge and take a step up into Compositing, teaching you all the skills our artists use. This unique opportunity gives you the chance to regularly present your work back to supervisors and leads for essential feedback.

Environment Generalist

The EnvGen Greenlight program will cover the broad spectrum of work undertaken by our Environments and Generalist team. This includes modelling, texturing, look development, scene building, lighting, matte painting, and 2.5D camera mapping techniques.

With an early emphasis on the artistic fundamentals of creating a VFX shot, we move quickly into the practical application of 2D and 3D Generalist workflows. If you have an interest in doing complete shots from start to finish, this is the Greenlight for you!

The Build Greenlight program will fully embed you in a professional, top tier studio environment where you’ll create assets from model through texturing and final lookdev alongside our talented industry veterans.

This opportunity will offer mentorship, tutorials, and lessons given by the training team, Build Supervisors, and lead artists. You also will have the opportunity to work on a project in Build at DNEG and will present this back to Supervisors and lead artists for feedback!
