What course did you study?
I did the comprehensive VFX course which was for both 2D and 3D that taught the basics of modelling, rigging, animation, texturing, matchmove, roto/prep and compositing.
What lessons have you learned during your time studying and your time working in VFX?
In this industry you constantly face different challenges. But I can happily say that my personal challenges are the toughest to overcome. I have always struggled to be outspoken and communicate with others. Due to my personality and culture growing up, I was used to being quiet and would always try figuring things out on my own. But since joining the VFX industry, I can see how important communication is. In addition, being one of the very few women, I knew that I have been given an opportunity here and I needed to step up my game. It took me time to get out of my shell, but when I see an opportunity I push myself out of my comfort zone.
What's your favourite animation and why?
Growing up I used to love watching Anim features and Toy story was my all-time favourite. I loved the characters, animation and the story line. It was then when I was inspired to think how was it all made. However, now as I also love sci-fi films some of my favourite movies are Inception, Interstellar and Blade runner.
