Data Capture TD

REALTIME are looking out for a Data Capture TD to come on board and support our TV department on one of the most unique projects we have ever produced. The role will be responsible for capturing and organising all the data taken from a shoot. This data will be used across all departments at Realtime.

The Data Capture TD must be an experienced photographer who has knowledge of the VFX pipeline and how each department uses captured reference material. Additionally, they will have experience working on film sets and are able to work as part of a shooting crew.

The TD’s responsibilities will be split between on set work and as part of the VFX team at Realtime.


• Work with and alongside our clients

• Work with the VFX/CG supervisor to ensure that all sets / actors are marked up appropriately for matchmove/rotoAnim purposes

• Advise on the placement and direction of witness cameras and their operators

• Cover reference photographs of the set and camera setups

• Capture modelling, texture and lighting references of all practical sets, as required.

• Capture modelling and texture reference of props and characters.

• Cover camera data collection when required

• Support the client VFX team as an additional pair of hands as required


• Familiarity with a Total Station and/or Lidar scanner would be useful but not a necessity.
