Digital Compositor

The digital compositor is the last port of call in the production process for film, television, advertising and gaming, as well as website displays and single images. It is their job to combine all the visual elements together at the end of the production process, to create the final scenes that make it onto our screens. Working principally in the VFX department, they assemble visual compositions by layering previously created material and images and blending them to form a single, seamless image. A digital compositor needs mathematical knowledge, computer software skills, an eye for detail, the ability to adapt to different projects and styles, communicative skills, and creative flair.

Please Note: The world of creative careers is broad and ever-evolving. While our descriptions aim to capture the essence of a role, we appreciate that no two jobs will be the same. We’re always looking to grow, expand and add to these roles, so if you feel we are missing something please let us know!
