The opportunity

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced individual to join our expanding team as a Senior Lecturer in Visual Effects for BA Computer Animation and Visual Effects at London College of Communication (LCC). The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching and delivering the curriculum across the 3 years of BA Computer Animation and Visual Effects.

 

The successful candidate will play a pivotal role in teaching and assessment at undergraduate level, work closely with the course leader, contribute to curriculum development in the domain of Visual Effects, have expertise in industry workflows and pipelines, foster collaboration within the course teams, and provide pastoral support to students.



BA Computer Animation and Visual Effects resides within the Moving Image and Digital Arts Programme alongside Animation, Immersive Media, Games Art and Games Design courses within the Screen School. The role offers a unique opportunity for a candidate who is committed to maintaining an innovative creative curriculum in this area of the School’s portfolio, and who is keen to promote inclusion and cultural diversity for graduates looking to develop a deep understanding of the complex specialist skillset of 3D and Visual Effects.

You should be comfortable working with diverse cohorts of students and committed to a teaching approach that integrates theory and practice and engaging students through a combination of innovative pedagogy, knowledge exchange and/or research.

 

You should possess a record of professional practice/research, with a proficiency in Nuke Compositing for Visual Effects. Knowledge of this software is essential including 2D and 3D tracking, keying and compositing workflows, paint and roto techniques and compositing 3D renders into live action. Knowledge of other relevant software is desirable such as Maya and Adobe Creative Suite.

 

You will be keen to use your academic and/or industry-based experience to support the development of student work. You should have a strong understanding of the contemporary context of Visual Effects in an academic and/or professional setting and be engaged in relevant networks and communities of practice within this and/or related fields.
