Career Strategies Workshop for Artists and Animators

I CALL THIS ONE THE “POWER LUNCH” – (1 HOUR) My “Power Lunch” Career Strategies Session has three parts.  You may choose all three or just one part that addresses exactly the issues you are having with getting a job, finding longevity and creating a career in animation.  This course has nothing to do with keyframes, but addressing everything they do not teach you in school about getting that job and keeping that paycheck coming.

I have shared this workshop with the novice to the expert level because the Animation and VFX business model has changed so drastically, especially over the past ten years.  Maybe you were recently laid off from a job at a big studio and now have no idea how to navigate the new landscape of working in animation?  maybe you are geographically challenged and need help getting relocated to where the work is? Maybe you are switching careers? Maybe you are just starting out and want to know what to expect and what you are getting into?

All of these questions and more are answered in this session. I guide our time together with my prezi lectures and you define what is discussed through your questions. This is a session literally encompassing everything about animation, but there is no animating.
