  • developing the timing and pace of the movements of a character or object during the sequence of images and ensuring they follow the soundtrack and audio requirements;
  • using technical software packages, such as Flash, 3ds Max, Maya, LightWave, Softimage and Cinema 4D;
  • building up accurate, detailed frame-by-frame visuals;
  • recording dialogue and working with editors to composite the various layers of animation (backgrounds, special effects, characters and graphics) in order to produce the finished piece;
  • working to production deadlines and meeting clients’ commercial requirements;
  • working as part of a broader production team, which might include liaising with printers, copywriters, photographers, designers, account executives, website designers or marketing specialists;
  • dealing with diverse business cultures, delivering presentations and finding funding.
