Let's work together

Senior Flame Artist
Flavor, the mograph/design/VFX and finishing brand of Cutters Studios is looking for a can-do-it-all Senior Flame Artist. We are a collective of designers and visual artists who delight in experimentation and thrive on collaboration. With offices in NYC, Chicago, Kansas City, LA, Detroit, and Tokyo, we serve some of the world's most innovative and well-known brands. Flavor’s work is primarily national advertising for major agencies and brands - from Super Bowl spots all the way to multi-aspect ratio digital content, seen by millions of people globally. Cutters Studios bought Flame license #3 in North America back in the day, and has been going strong with Flame ever since.

Our ideal candidate has at least 8 years Autodesk Flame experience. While a high level of proficiency in color grading is a requirement, experience with Lustre is a plus but not a must. Clean up, camera tracking, greenscreen compositing, and multiple aspect ratio finishing are all in a day’s work. Experience running supervised in-person sessions is required. (Due to Covid-19 supervised sessions are very limited, but we hope to return to a traditional type of interactive experience in some shape or form.) You should be equally comfortable compositing, color grading or finishing. Can you lead a job while balancing a few others, while lending a helping hand to the rest of the team? Then let’s talk! We offer a team environment, where you will both lead projects and interact with senior-level creatives in a state-of-the-art studio model with the latest and greatest tools.

This position is located in Chicago, IL USA but can be remote until Fall 2021.

We offer full benefits including medical, dental, vision, and 401k.
