I’ve been in the VFX and Games industry for almost 25 years, but the landscape has changed. What would it look like TODAY if I were to start over?
What would I do if I were to want to get a job as fast as possible, and land a career in visual effects or game development, or design. What tools would I focus on? Would I go to VFX school, Gnomon, Creative Live , Marie Forleo or classes at the Futur – study business of design, classes from Jonathan Stark, Roberto Blake or others? Would I study online, or what tactics, what levers would I pull? A lot of us hear buzz words like entreprenuer / artreprenuer or flashy visual effects terms which aren’t relevant early in our career. Or worried about pricing just yet.
I dig deep into this subject, focused entirely on doing less, rather than more. Focusing in on what matters, what is going to give me the momentum to get my first creative career breakthrough.

Thanks so much and enjoy the tutorial! I hope to build a much more in-depth lesson on this subject soon
