Working as a Graphics and Titles Designer in Film and Television involves design and production of graphics elements for TV channels, series, individual programmes, films and promotions. At its most complex this could be supervising the shoot of multi pass animations using a motion control studio or on location. Most of the work, however is producing and implementing templates for use in studios and post production suites to enhance the look of the output and to reinforce and support broadcaster, channel, genre and programme branding.
Graphics and Titles professionals design and implement moving and stationary graphics used for branding and presentation of information. On some high end shows they operate the graphics generator in the studio gallery but, in most instances, they create templates for use by graphics operators, editors and vision mixers.
To do this role, you will need to: -Be an exceptional graphic designer with the ability to realise 2D and 3D designs through a variety of computer software packages -Be an approachable team player -Work to tight deadlines and, at times, under extreme pressure -Pay close attention to detail -Be an excellent communicator -Have tact and diplomacy skills -Prioritise tasks -Multi-task -Work long and often unsocial hours -Be flexible -Have a positive approach
The NFTS will help you develop these skills and capabilities.
