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)
Resident o’ Fitzroy Nth, Melbourne. Drinks at the Pinnacle?
Someone mention drinks?
Hi all. I just joined the community. Nice to meet you all.
G’day and welcome nicwyc, some very impressive architectural work in your portfolio too:thumbsup:
Thank you for your comments octopus7. I had a look on your portfolio and i’m quite impressed with your imagination and creativity. Hope that we can exchange some ideas on work and design in future.
I’m from Brisbane and don’t get down south as often as i’d like, but count me in.
I just moved back to Norway, i lived in melbourne for 5 years. Wish i had known about this site then. I hope its ok that i pop my head in now and then to see what you guys are doing down under. (I lived in Melbourne btw)
Course you can pop in Cracchus. The more the merrier. You can even do us a sketch of what you think Melbourne looks like right now. Submit it when we finaly get ourselves sorted for a meet down here!
Hey there peeps, I’m originaly from Brisbane, living and working in Melbourne for the past year now.
flails arms in the air
Just finishing up on the Gold Coast at the moment. Might be here for a little longer or heading back to Sydney in a month or so after I jet off to Hong Kong for a well deserved break.
I’m Joel - nickname is SandmanNinja - and am new to these boards.
I’ve been using 3DS Max for about 2.5 years (since version 8 was released), and am working towards getting skilled up in ArchViz. I currently use Max 2008 and Mental Ray.
G’day Sandman! Welcome aboard.
What a friendly place!
Think I’m gonna like it here.
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
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.
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.
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.
hey guys !! thanks for sharing ideas … i agree about Animal Logic maybe they are looking for super amazing portfolio or demo reel … or they need years of experiance, i;ve been doing 3D seriously for 2 years now working on Maya and Zbrush more i have 8 years in graphics desgin, i am trying to figure how to make my degree in computer recognized in australia, so i guess wont hope for Animal Logic at the moment but an artist can always wish and work harder till it happen.
how about modeling/textuering for game industry !!!
