Computer Artist

USA 829 Computer Artists work within the Art Department of television shows, feature films and commercials. Computer Artists most often work directly for the Production Designer and Art Director, and must also coordinate with the Set Decoration, Props and Playback departments, among others. Computer Artists are responsible for breaking down (listing and detailing) the scripted graphic elements of a production, reading “between the lines” of a script for additional graphic needs, collaborating with other departments to make design choices, and managing the creation and fabrication of those elements to be used on set. Typical projects include; logo design, signage, packaging, newspapers and books, photo editing, motion graphics, screen graphics and prop concept design, among others. Computer Artists are generally required to work a 10-hour day in an Art Department office environment.
