Job Description


Welcome to Lightspeed LA (Irvine), the first U.S.-based, AAA game development studio for Tencent Games, where we are focused on building open-world games that emphasize an ambitious living world, sophisticated player-driven gameplay, and mature, thoughtful storytelling!

Why join Lightspeed LA (Irvine)?

Creation is the soul of our studio. For us, it's not only about the exciting, new AAA open world game we're developing, but also about team values and studio culture. We foster an open and transparent environment where everyone feels comfortable providing constructive feedback about all aspects of our games.
  • We encourage the showing of work that's still in progress
  • We don't attack or question unfinished work, we celebrate its promise
  • We have a No Blame Culture where we blame the problem, not the person

This is a safe place to fail, and we don't view failure as a negative, but as the natural result of pushing boundaries and exploring new ideas.

We create together. We face challenges together. Most importantly, we succeed together.

Key Responsibilities:
  • Work with Editor to manage and edit footage
  • Work with directors, DP and editor to determine how to execute on all aspects of shots
  • Provide practical and creative input to scene planning
  • Select, assemble and position camera equipment to shoot scenes according to requirements
  • Collaborate with motion capture team to pull footage
  • Create bins and label footage
  • Run dailies
  • Edit sequences as needed
  • Build assembly cuts based on storyboards as needed
  • Work with production to track and communicate editorial changes to crew and vendors
  • Work with the audio team to ensure that latest takes are in the cut


  • Excellent theoretical knowledge of filming, lensing and capturing footage
  • Experience with editorial storytelling, pacing and timing
  • Exceptional organizational skills inside a NLE
  • Proven experience as camera operator
  • Deep knowledge of codecs, color space and video & audio formats
  • Proficient in DaVinci Resolve, Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects
  • Ability to understand and follow scripts
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Ability to think and act quickly
  • Attention to detail
  • Physical strength to carry heavy equipment and stamina
  • High school diploma; degree in film, media or relevant field is a plus
