What is it like to work as an Assistant Technical Director at Framestore?
My position is a tricky one. I find it really hard to explain it because the work we do as Assistant Technical Directors is so versatile, and can vary so much that in a day we can evolve from animators to scriptors, from roto artists to film supervisors. Best concise description I can give is that we represent figuratively "the first defensive line of the industry". This means that we are the first one "to die", still figuratively. We tackle any possible imaginable problems which may interfere with the pipeline flow.
