Is your biggest career challenge finding a job when you live in a different country than the US? Do you think there aren’t any good animation studios where you are?
While it can feel like the industry (and the opportunities) revolve around Hollywood, this mentorship will focus on helping the international animation and VFX community who are looking for their first or next job at an animation studio outside the US.
The circle will focus on mentees with 0 – 2 years of experience interested in artistic, technical, or production positions. We’ll talk about identifying your career goals, how to find opportunities and studios (like an industry headhunter), and accountability to follow through with the plan. Together, we’ll tighten up your resumes, polish portfolios, and amplify your networking skills — building career momentum to serve you!
