Illumination Studios Paris is organising a training in Technical Layout for 2 months from June to July 2020! During this period, 4 people will have the chance to discover this department and be trained by our supervisors in order to integrate our feature film teams. Registrations are open to anyone from a 3D training course or who already has experience in this field.

The Technical Layout (TLO) department receives the approved shots from the Layout department. The artists check the conformity of all the elements (characters, sets and props) that appear in the shots to obtain consistent and complete scenes. The TLO also produces the layering in order to cut the shots in different layers of animation for the Crowd Animation department.The shots are then sent to the various Animation departments, who can start its own part of the production process.

To apply to our training, please fill out the form here. People who are selected by the supervisors will be contacted by the recruitment team by the end of April.
