Career Opportunities

The superhero genre is only becoming more popular, with audiences praising franchise game-changer Captain America: Civil War and gory smash hit Deadpool. To work on one film would be any fan’s dream, but for Curtin alumnus and Visual Effects Supervisor Brendan Seals, it’s part and parcel of his daily job.
