Most people know the big film and tv animation houses, but few know that there is an entire world of opportunities outside of these roles. In this circle we will be talking about the benefits of starting your career in motion graphics, working more in a marketing/advertising industry. We will cover an overview of the motion graphics pipeline and feature a few guest speakers who work on the creative side. We will also cover how to reach out to employers, preparing a portfolio that will make you stand out, how to deal with freelance finances and rates, and what to do once you’re in the studio.
This circle is perfect for those interested in getting started in motion graphics or would like to learn more about this field.
