Hi everyone! I’m currently studying VFX through CG Spectrum and have been learning the basics of modeling and animation for a couple of months now before studying Houdini/compositing in my next term. I came into the course not knowing anything and I am enjoying it so far yet I feel like I’m missing inspiration and motivation to really enjoy it. For a little background I decided to pursue VFX mainly because I didn’t want to be a freelance traditional artist, it’s in the movie/gaming industry, and it’s a constantly growing and needed career not necessarily because I was super inspired to pursue it (and it’s still an artistic field).
So speaking on that, what was some of your first aha moments as VFX artists where you decided you were going to pursue VFX? Was it a movie scene? Gaming scene? What gives you inspiration? I’d love to hear your experiences on what made you want to learn VFX and what keeps you motivated now.
Thanks so much,
