Australian Chapter - who's from Australia?


#160

Hi folks,

Just wanted to say hi to my fellow Aussies. Great to see a good number of folk from Melbourne in the forums. I’ve been a local of Melbourne for about 5 years now, having moved down here to pursue a career and forsaking the sunny beaches of Newcastle.
Hey Erilaz, that sketch group sounds interesting. i might have to check it out some time!

What kind of industries does evryone work in down here? I work as a concept artist/toy designer for a local based toy company.

G’day Redfrog,
Good to see someone else from Melbourne here. I don’t work in the industry at all worse luck:sad:
i’m just a hobbyist at the moment. But i’m hoping that will change once I get a lot better. I’d love to do architectural interiors and product design. I’ll leave animating to the pros.
At the moment i’m working in a warehouse as a storeman (wish I was working as a CG artist instead)

hey guys whats up … i’ve just moved to australia since 6 weeks and i am trying to find a job as modeler !! … any idea !!? thx

Hi John,

Not sure, mate.

Animal Logic is in your part of the world (I think) - they are a world-class CGI company.

I’m hoping to go freelance into ArchVis myself. Working on my website and more portfolio renders.

Good luck!


#178

The problem with Animal Logic is that they expect you to have a degree in computer science and a three years experience working on blockbuster movies, just to get a modeling job.


#179

I know someone at Blur Studios, and he tells me that a knock 'em dead portfolio opens many doors.

I’d like to think those requirements of Animal Logic is to short-list the number of applicants.
If you have an awesome demo reel, submit it.
