Visual effects department
The visual effects department includes all jobs related to visual effects, such as matte painter, compositor, digital effects artists, animators (for live action films), visual effects supervisors, and miniature crew members. It does not include special effects, which have their own section.
If a company or team worked on a film and received an onscreen credit for its contribution, then an individual who worked as part of that company or team may be listed in IMDb. If their name appears in the on-screen credits they should be listed with their credited job title and the company name if that's also listed (i.e. matchmover: SuperGroovy FX Co.). If their name is not listed in the credits then they should be listed in the same way but with (uncredited) in the attributes box to indicate that there was no on-screen credit.
You must include a job title.
Animators for animated films, or for animated sequences within live action films, should go to the animation department instead.
