About the job

As a show motion operator it is your job to understand and work with WIMOTION software in order to operate and control from your desk all pre-programmed motion moves of objects, set machinery and devices that help create show effects. After a deep dive training you will have the necessary skills to be operator in diverse show automation scenarios. You can be responsible for the motion of LED towers, set wagons or the control of moving audience platforms such as the 8 gliding stands of the immersive Studio 100 War Musical 40-45. You work in a team and you communicate on the automation part of the show with spotters, stage managers, show callers, set designers and cast. You’re also responsible for the maintenance of your motion material. And no worries : as a newbird you start flying under the wings of an experienced WICREATIONS motion operator.
