SB is an award-winning Creative Production Agency with an international reach that produces beautiful imagery and digital solutions for Brands and advertising agencies.

Today, we continue to innovate and stretch creative and technical boundaries, with fully integrated production that encompasses everything from CGI, motion and VFX to shoot production and VR. 

 

We’re looking for an energetic, resourceful and self motivated Nuke Artist with a keen eye for detail, the drive to push themselves and a passion for creating beautiful and believable automotive imagery.

“As I mentioned it was very well received, with various comments being made on its realism, lighting and quality. “Very lifestyle”, “Painterly feeling” and “great attention to “colour temperature” are some of the (paraphrased) complements that were mentioned.
