Sarofsky is looking to round out our talented team with a new CG Director. Our goal is to find a person who can continue to grow, lead, expand and develop our evolving CG department. This person will partner with both the Executive Producer and production team, each of our in-house Creative Directors, and our CTO.

 

This person is a problem solver and a solution finder and should have a background creating work in the advertising industry as well as the ever changing and demanding entertainment field of both television and features. Past experience in leading a department or a team of artists is a plus and this person should be an expert in the 3D CG arena.

 

In addition to leading the CG team, this person should have expertise in the latest software developments and be prepared to test and monitor that software regularly. He or she must also be very aware of industry trends and new technology and how to incorporate those into our production pipeline. This person will also help to maintain and establish our internal production process as our client needs continue to evolve and develop. As Sarofsky is a collaborative studio, he or she should have studio experience working side by side with other outside vendors on large projects.

 

As Sarofsky is known for its expertise and knowledge of design, in addition to the above requirements, this person must have a strong understanding of design… And not just motion design, but all aspects including photography, film and the arts. This includes a broad awareness of culture, lifestyle and news in general. We are looking for a well-rounded person who is passionate about design, has his or her own point of view and personal style, and therefore is a strong CG Director.

 

Lastly, this person should be good-natured, sociable and enjoy working in a very team-oriented, collaborative environment. He or she should also be willing to and enjoy mentoring junior artists.
