Lightbulb Prime Focus Conversion Team hiring Stereo 3D Compositors

While searching for the latest movies that will be in stereo 3D, it's interesting to see a major conversion team like Prime Focus, is hiring 3D artists in LA, London, etc.

List of 3D conversions by Prime Focus:

Remembering that not all films are entirely converted, some will be filmed mostly in 3D, with some conversion shots, while others will be multi studio efforts, not just by Prime Focus.

Converting movies to 3D from a 2D source is very intensive and takes an impressive attention to detail, though the software available today definitely helps create amazing results as with 2016's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows 3D, which has a range of mostly strong 3D with some medium 3D. Prime Focus is preparing Transformers Last Knight 3D for this summer, among other films.

Check out the link above regarding Prime Focus' conversion tech, called Depth Gen, which shows a video of how it works. Pretty cool.

Keeping in mind, Prime Focus made the mistake of trying to convert Clash of the Titans in two weeks time, back in 2009/2010 or so right after Avatar 3D's success. The very weak 3D in most scenes with awful warping, put a big damper on 3D conversions for awhile. Then Prime Focus eventually brought out Lucas' low budget conversion of The Phantom Menace, which also had mild 3D and looked nearly 2D in many shots.

Later though, Prime Focus proved what they were capable of with their very nice conversion of Men in Black 3, which had medium to strong 3d. Since then, they've made consistent improvements in their conversions and are a conversion studio I trust will choose to offer stronger 3D films these days.


Jobs for Stereo 3D Artists:
Here's the link for those interested: Looks like they want 2+ years experience with Nuke software, an advanced stereo 3D editor program.
