Look Development at DNEG allows our artists to embrace their creative side to build eye-catching assets. Our Senior Look Development TDs are responsible for creating a range of digital assets to an impeccable standard for our world-class feature films.
As part of our build team, you’ll work closely with our texture artists, modelers, and lighters; this is a collaborative effort and requires you to absorb feedback from your peers to produce the best possible result.
