This is a live stream with Sergio Paez (previously Lucas Film and other studios – check out https://storyboardart.org/) and Mitch Bowler (previous of Activision – check out www.pencilkings.com) and Allan McKay.

We dig deep into the lifestyle of artist’s that travel permanently around the world, having their flights, hotel and other expenses paid for — and jump from project to project. And how YOU can do the same! Answering many career related questions and the benefits of this lifestyle, as well as the drawbacks — and more!

Hey thanks a lot for the video you made some really good points. I will be a digital nomad in a month so this really helped. I don't know if this is really relevant to somewhat technical content about the hardware and correct working methods in remote work. Thanks alot!

Thanks to Allan I landed my dream job at unbelievable film project aaaaand get ready I did it with almost no film background directly from Archiviz, absolutely precious advice here...
Awesome content, I still can't believe im just now finding out who you are and all of your work you've done within this industry. I've been watching as many of your videos, subscribing to you Instagram and Facebook pages to learn as much as i can. I'm currently trying to strengthen my environmental modeling skills so i can update my out dated portfolio. Apart from your tutorials which i haven't gotten to yet, I feel whats made the most impact with me were the videos you posted pertaining do's and don's when looking for jobs. Such a eye opener. I'm from NYC, so if you have any tips on groups or meetups to help, that be awesome. Thanks a bunch Allan

great video as always I'm always learning a lot
21:20 4 years and 40K is pocket change. Considering you can earn 20K at a Summer job and Freelancing while on your breaks from school. You can get an illustration degree in 3 years in some Colleges for 12K. Small price to pay to have a passport to go work internationally. :) I know many Korean artists who already have pro-experience who attend schools in Canada and the USA to get a degree or diploma so they can work outside of Korea.
14:00 a DEGREE is VERY useful to cross international borders!!!! VERY USEFUL!!!! In Canada and the USA. a Degree in your field gets you a TN-1 Visa. Winning contests get you an O-1 Visa opportunity.
