Do you have a passion for cinematic design, and its impact on the gameplay experience? Can you explain the virtues of a great shot, and write a spec that translates your aesthetic into a set of tools and game logic? If so, we are looking for you.

Our Agoura Hills studio is looking for a Camera Designer to design and implement game cameras that make players feel like they are part of the action.  As a Camera Designer you will interface with the design and programming teams to ensure you have the tools necessary to deliver state-of-the-art cinematic and gameplay experiences where every shot is framed perfectly for maximum dramatic effect.

  • Be an advocate for the end user by pushing for systems which are easy to understand and use
  • Be a go-to resource for team members when questions regarding the camera system arise

Requirements:

  • One to four years’ experience as a camera or system designer
  • Ability to design and utilize systems that replicate real-world broadcast and film cameras, incorporating hand-held vs. mounted, viewing angle, depth of field, aperture, etc.
  • Ability to design logic for camera behavior which considers a variety of constraints, including multiple characters, spacing, varied height and occluding objects
  • Ability to tell story using camera literacy in broadcast and narrative, including composition and framing, zoom usage, multi-camera live setup, cutaways and group and table dialog
  • Ability to design and utilize systems to replicate director and cameraman behavior and choreography, including movement (i.e. cameraman holding a camera), zoom, anticipation, rack focus, tracking, etc.
  • Attention to detail and completeness, ability to see around corners, anticipate issues
  • Organized, excellent communication skills, passion for games, collaborative demeanor

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Scripting experience – C#, LUA, Blueprint, etc.
