    Hi Ataul,

    Thank you for your comment, you raise a really valid point.
    That is one of the things we try to do here at Escape with our students. We try to prepare them for all aspects of the VFX industry, the good and the bad!!


  • Ataul Munim:

    I'm glad you posted this Olivia, I was introduced to his blog last week when @VFXSoldier retweeted Scott's last post re: the negative side of the VFX industry which some young artists might not be aware of.

    I don't think he's trying to detract anyone from trying to break into the industry, but make sure that they plan accordingly, and know what they're getting into, which can't be a bad thing, in any industry.
