Can you contribute to the movie magic behind Wētā FX's amazing CG creatures?
The Wētā FX Puppet Tools team provides Wētā artists with the rigging toolkit they need to produce fast CG puppets while pushing the limits of quality and cinema-grade complexity. We are a small team with diverse skills who produce generalized but highly customizable puppet "templates" using proprietary software. We supply tooling to configure and release the puppets for specific characters on shows. Our responsibilities include low level rigging code, build systems, UIs, and pipelining. We support and interact with both animators and creature rigging Technical Directors.
