We've launched a brand new series of podcasts aimed at helping CG animators achieve career success.
Although there are lots of great animation podcasts out there already, none of them focused on practical advice on skills and career development.
So we set out to create a podcast which interviews artists and studios at all levels, from those who have just landed their first job, to those who are at the top of their game. Each person brings a unique perspective which everyone can learn something from.
In the first episode, which we recorded at Vertex Conference, we spoke about how to get the most out of animation festivals when job hunting; giving advice on the do’s and don’ts when approaching studio recruitment teams.
The second episode focuses on building a perfect showreel. We spoke to Aardman, The Mill & Blue Zoo to see what they like (and don’t like) to see in animators showreels. It features a full hour of jam-packed practical tips on how to build a reel that will appeal to recruiters.
