EPISODE 368 – YouTuber and VFX Artist Eloi Andaluz Fullà. 

Hi, everyone! 

This is Allan McKay. Welcome to Episode 368! I’m speaking to YouTuber and VFX Artist Eloi Andaluz Fullà.

This Episode was a long time coming. Eloi and I talk about about:

  • Transitioning careers from architecture to 3D;
  • Moving countries for his first VFX job;
  • Being a Generalist vs a Specialist;
  • Working in realtime, TyFlow and other upcoming technology; 
  • Knowing when to step away;
  • Why simplicity always wins;
  • Working for Scanline VFX;
  • Launching his own YouTube Channel;
  • Giving back to the VFX community;
  • And so much more!

One of my favorite subjects that we cover is knowing when to step away from your work. I spoke about that to Aaron Sims from ASC (Episode coming up soon!). This is going to be one awesome Episode!

I’m also publishing these on my YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjgqdaigk7VSDqqqkHkcNTg

Please take a second to share this Episode with others.

Let’s dive in! 

 

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES FROM ALLAN McKAY: 

[01:15]  Have you ever sent in your reel and wondered why you didn’t get the callback or what the reason was you didn’t get the job? Over the past 20 years of working for studios like ILM, Blur Studio, Ubisoft, I’ve built hundreds of teams and hired hundreds of artists — and reviewed thousands of reels! That’s why I decided to write The Ultimate Demo Reel Guide from the perspective of someone who actually does the hiring. You can get this book for free right now at www.allanmckay.com/myreel!

[54:06] One of the biggest problems we face as artists is figuring out how much we’re worth. I’ve put together a website. Check it out: www.VFXRates.com! This is a chance for you to put in your level of experience, your discipline, your location — and it will give you an accurate idea what you and everyone else in your discipline should be charging. Check it out: www.VFXRates.com!

 

Okay, what did you think? I want to thank Eloi for taking the time to chat! I hope you got a lot from this Episode. It was definitely one of my favorite ones!

Next week, I will be interviewing Co-Founders of DI4D Colin Urquhart and Douglas Green. They talk about facial capture and performance capture.

Until then –

Rock on!
