Compositing Supervisor


Rome, Italy

Palomar is one of the main live-action production companies in Italy, we’ve been here for more than 30 years and have a long list of award-winning projects. We are part of Mediawan, a group made of +60 companies with a bunch of great animation studios on board (Method Animation Paris, On Animation Canada, Submarine in Amsterdam, just to name a few). Our animation and VFX departments are based in Emilia Romagna, Italy. We provide a friendly work environment where collaborative approach, respect for each other and a good balance between work hours and private life are highly valued!

The Compositing Supervisor at Palomar oversees all compositing aspects of Palomar’s in-house animation and live action productions.

While working with us, you will grow with our team and expand the department. If you are used to mainly work for clients, here you will find a different approach: you’re now working directly for the Production company. You’ll have the chance to work on our animation and live action in-house productions, and to collaborate on other Mediawan group projects.

If you are tired of being a gear in a huge process, or you are a lead artist willing to take a step up in your career, join the family! We are looking forward to welcome you and to grow further with the help of your talent.

Under the responsibility of the studio manager, you will collaborate with the director (on animation projects) and with our post-production team (on our live action TV series and features). You will manage and supervise a team of compositors, help producers to bid on new projects, ensure quality is consistent, produce output yourself and create a motivated team, eager to learn from your experience.
