Last week Claire Anderson, Talent Manager at The Mill divulged some of the greatest tips and tricks young artists need to apply in order to cut it in the VFX Industry. I have to say; I couldn’t help but feel a little awestruck listening to our Training Manager and Claire chat away during the 40 minute webinar because of the room we were stationed at. It was like something from a bond movie – check out the pictures! Filled with The Mill’s previous conquests (let’s be clear that I’m talking about Oscars and Bafta’s here….) I kept expecting a drinks cabinet and a man with a white cat to appear from behind one of the walls. One thing’s for sure, The Mill certainly know what they’re talking about and have the awards to prove it.
Beer and Pizza
It was a really informal webinar and gave lots of people the chance to ask questions online – but it did get a little bit rowdy in the room next to us at the half time point. That’s because every Thursday at The Mill, they have a Beer and Pizza evening, where they hook up via live stream to the LA and New York offices and take a look at what’s being produced the other side of the Atlantic. It gave our webinar listeners a chance to glimpse what life in this industry is like.
We were short on time towards the end and Claire didn’t get a chance to answer all of the questions. If you still have something you’d like to put to us then please type them up in response to this blog post and we’ll get them answered for you. We’ll be posting a recording of the webinar to the website soon so keep your eyes peeled! A huge thanks to Claire and we look forward to the next webinar.
