Job Description

Creative VISUAL EFFECTS SUPERVISOR for world’s first holographic feature production.


About 12th Battalion Productions

We’re a small company based in North West London including a former member of the Oscar-winning VFX team behind Gravity and The Golden Compass, a Grammy-nominated music producer.

We’ve decided we want to change the way live performance is presented across the world, using a combination of traditional visual effects and non-traditional projection techniques.

Symphony to a Lost Generation

To this end, we’re producing Symphony to a Lost Generation, the world’s first fully holographic dramatic work, featuring a cast of 200 actors and dancers and 250 musicians, to tour small theatres across Europe with some of the biggest names in performance (all appearing to be live, all recorded). 

It’s a low budget project with a phenomenally skilled and passionate team behind it, and counting a theatre impressario (specifically, an early investor in Cats and Starlight Express) among its backers.

Its subject matter is the First World War’s place in our present. The work seeks to make use of layered projection to allow never-before-seen spectacular events to occur on a theatrical stage. The work makes extensive use of digitally built environments and green screen.


The VFX Supervisor works with the Director, Visual Director and Producer and is responsible for all CG aspects of the VFX. The VFX Supervisor is responsible for managing the VFX team to deliver groundbreaking visuals in a never-before-seen holographic format for stage production (but developed using standard cinematic VFX techniques). 

Using a standard VFX pipeline to produce a final work in a format that’s never been seen before, there is very substantial need and opportunity for both artistic and technical creativity.

The VFX Supervisor also works with the Visual Director to facilitate the scheduling of VFX artists and resources and works with the Visual Director to provide artistic and technical notes and direction to the team. The VFX Supervisor is also involved in editing and final delivery of the project.



  • Work with the Director and Visual Director to explore and create the look of the project

  • Evaluate the creative requirements of the project, determine the technical implications and make high-level operational decisions - including creating the pipeline for the project and what visual effects software will be used for the project

  • Work closely with the VFX artists in creating high quality visual effects

  • Provide clear direction to all VFX Artists, setting clear objectives and monitoring the process, progress and results

  • Determine, modify and maintain the most effective and efficient technical approach and workflow possible.

  • Conduct daily reviews with Visual Director as final quality control on all deliveries of material. 

  • Eliminate potential problems in pipeline tools before they impact on production

  • Assist in the recruitment of VFX artists to ensure the right fit, skills and experience required for the project


Essential Skills:


  • A thorough understanding of the entire visual effects process and the ability to interpret the artistic brief from the Visual Director

  • The ability to review other artists' work and ensure a high standard both artistically and technically

  • Creativity, both artistic and technical

  • Good technical understanding of CG pipelines and the ability to specify efficient workflows and identify additional tools
