I just accepted a job at Weta Digital in New Zealand, and assuming all the visa-getting rigamarole goes as planned, Julie and I will be heading there in about 6 weeks. I will be a "CG Software Engineer" -- it is spelled out in the contract that that will be the exact text of any screen credit I might receive. So in the next couple of years, if you see a movie where Weta was an vfx vendor, and you stay until the bitter end of the closing credits, after the Key Grip and the Best Boy and the Caterer and the Parrot Wrangler, you may see my name up on the big screen, in 7 point type. Which will be as satisfying to me as a director's credit.
