CG Artist Post Production Ever wondered how films, TV shows, commercials and games can show you images of aliens and huge explosions and make them seem so real? Well, CG artists use their skills to create visual effects that are so convincing that audiences believe they really happened. CGI, which stands for computer generated imagery, is not just used for creating extreme explosions and space aliens, this growing discipline is used to build whole worlds, create storms and bring characters to life. Being a CG artist involves: • Creating visual effects using computer software and scripting languages • Understanding the principles of art, photography, physics, biology and maths and using lots of research to create visual effects that meet the creative brief • Working in a cyclical or iterative way that allows the CG work to develop and improve based on client or supervisor feedback • Working closely in a team of CG artists Graphic Designer Advertising A graphic designer creates visual two-dimensional solutions to communicate messages for their clients. Some designers work on three-dimensional designs like product packaging and displays. Graphic designers work to a client brief from which they develop creative ideas.

Being a graphic designer involves: • Meeting clients to discuss their needs • Developing ideas which meet their clients' needs • Providing quotes for clients • Thinking creatively to produce new ideas • Presenting ideas • Working with a wide range of media including photography and Computer Aided Design (CAD) • Proofreading • Keeping up-to-date with the latest software and design packages
Scenes of Crime Officer Policing RAF Photographer Armed Forces Photographers play a range of roles in the RAF, capturing everything from aerial reconnaissance images to public relations portraits. When an RAF photographer is asked to photograph a job, it could be anybody from the lowest rank right up to the Queen. They could be involved in taking technical shots of aircraft, processing and printing intelligence photographs for interpretation, or even photographing crime scenes, postmortems and medical work for the police. Scenes of crime officers (SOCOs), sometimes called crime scene investigators or crime scene examiners, examine crime scenes to collect evidence. Although SOCOs are not police officers, they are employed by police forces and work closely with the police. SOCOs recover evidence from all types of crime, ranging from burglary and vehicle theft (known as 'volume crime') to crimes such as rape or murder. Assistant SOCOs or volume crime scene investigators deal with volume crime. As a SOCO your work would include: • Preserving and protecting the crime scene to prevent evidence being spoilt or destroyed • Finding out what evidence the investigating police officers need and deciding on the best methods for obtaining it • Recording the scene using photography and video • Searching for footprints and marks left by tools or weapons • Setting up lighting, equipment and props • Collecting fingerprints • Shooting video training films • • Retouching public relations images, either by hand or with digital software Gathering evidence such as fibres, blood, hair, paint or glass using various techniques • Putting samples into protective packaging and sending them to forensic laboratories or fingerprint bureaux for analysis • Processing and printing photos • Producing written records and updating systems with details of evidence Being an RAF photographer could involve: • Gathering photographic evidence for engineering, security and accident investigations • Printing target identification images for aircrew You may need to give evidence in court or attend post-mortems.
