EA Worldwide Studios Content is looking for a Senior Technical Artist for Create Capture, in its LA facility. The successful candidate will have strong technical experience within the entertainment motion capture industry, with hands-on system experience a prerequisite. As a Technical Artist, you will work together with the Motion Capture Specialists to prioritize and troubleshoot technical issues and will work towards implementing solutions for process and pipeline development, as defined by the Technical Director.

The successful candidate will have an in-depth knowledge of large optical motion capture systems (36+ camera installations), ideally both Vicon and Motion Analysis. Hands-on experience with motion capture system configurations (volume setup, data flow, camera aiming/focusing), stage calibrations, data acquisitions, and associated post-processing of collected optical data is essential. Has familiarity with image-based 3D character scanning systems. Can provide day to day technical support for both motion capture and 3D scanning shoots.

The Technical Artist will provide technical insight and will support other Subject Matter Experts within Create Capture while attending meetings, and discussions about upcoming motion capture sessions.

The role requires the ability to adapt to custom toolsets and workflows; to maintain the highest data quality and throughput, Create Capture maintains many custom solutions for all aspects of the motion capture process, and logs the data in a database network, as it flows through the various stages of processing. Familiarity in maintaining and rectifying record keeping systems, such as Shotgun and MySQL, are a requirement.

As a Senior Technical Artist, you will regularly collaborate with the motion capture specialists within Create Capture to investigate and resolve technical issues for project-wide problems.

You will collaborate with other Technical Artists to investigate and implement new techniques, including the development of custom tools for workflow improvements and/or automation efficiencies per the technical vision of the Technical Director.

Experience with Unreal game engine and using it to enable Realtime in Production is essential.

You have experience with Unreal Engine 4 and its use and application in the field of Virtual Production.
