If you had to sum up your time at Escape Studios in one word, what would it be and why?
Determination. I always wanted to be a part of this industry ever since my school years. I went through a lot to get to Escape, so I was never going to tire or show laziness, even when the pressure was on. Getting into the industry was my personal mission, so determination was the word.
What lessons have you learnt during your time studying and your time working in VFX?
My learning experience at Escape was intense, but I didn’t realize as much as do now having worked in a visual effects environment how necessary that intensity was and is. When you are working in the industry you are there to do a job! People are relying on you and there are deadlines that need to be met every day. When you first enter the industry, nobody will expect you to know everything, so if you’re unsure ask and show that you’re keen to learn. The industry is full of wonderful people who want to help you reach your potential.
