SCAD seeks an experienced professor of visual effects to join its team in historic Savannah, Ga. In this role, you will advance SCAD students’ preparation for their creative careers.

Visual effects artists are masters of illusion, creating believable images that are impossible or impractical to shoot in the real world. As a professor, you will help talented students make their own incredible dreams a reality.

The successful candidate demonstrates expert proficiency in compositing within a node-based professional compositing environment (e.g., Nuke or equivalent), lighting and look development, integration of photographic elements with computer graphics effects animation, matte painting, and characters and environments (e.g., script breakdown, shot planning, post-production project management). Familiarity with the planning and execution of photographic elements for visual effects, including camera operation, scene-data collection, CG integration, miniature and forced-perspective photography, blue- and green-screen photography, use of motion-control technology, set protocol, and the planning and construction of special effects rigs for visual effects, is essential. The candidate should also be committed to remaining current on trends and technological developments in the field of visual effects.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Terminal degree or its equivalent in visual effects or a relevant discipline
  • Professional experience in visual effects

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Supervisory experience in visual effects
  • Ability to be credentialed through SACS guidelines or justified to teach
