Off to LA!

I was lucky enough to go to a VFX career fair in Los Angeles this weekend thanks to the career services department. It was a unique opportunity although not entirely in my field. It was smaller than expected, but it’s only the second year it’s been held. The main thing that the companies were looking for was people in film, CGI, motion capture, animation and 3D modeling. A really great thing was meeting some of the alumni in the area and getting a chance to make that connection with someone already out in their respective industries. The other highlights to me were the new Cintiqs which were really cool looking and a website that’s a combination of linkedIn and deviant art, which is a professional portfolio site basically.  Anyways it was an excellent opportunity that I wouldn’t trade for anything, though I hope the right people get the opportunity to take advantage of it next year.
