[01:20]  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!

[1:08:20] 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.

Okay, what did you think? I hope you got a lot from the Episode. I want to thank Scott for coming onto the Podcast. I had so much fun nerding out with him!

Next week, I’m doing a solo Episode about making choices that lead you to face your fears — the fears that get in the way of your career — and taking huge risks so that you can get that Dream Job!

Until then –

Rock on!
