Hi everyone. I’m a visual effects artist from Norway.
I am currently in the process of applying to the O1 Visa. As an applicant it is highly recommended to be a member of a association or respective guild, in my case that would be VES (Visual Effect Society). Does anyone have any experience in applying for a membership there? At their website, under membership, it states that you need the endorsement of two members in order to apply. Has anyone here applied without or prior to knowing any members? Other tips regarding O1 for visual effects artist in general would be greatly appreciated.
