I am a VFX artist living in Mancheser (UK). I moved here a year ago from Australia.
Back in OZ I had worked for around 6 years in the VFX and Animation industry, always in pretty high-end positions in small companies. I directed a couple jobs, won some awards, things where pretty sweet.
Then I moved to the UK, thinking with my experience I could get at least a small position at a big VFX company here.
Fail! No luck. Been here 1 year, and managed 2 small contracts with a place in Manchester. I have been out of the job now since October, and nothing really in the pipeline.
So, I am thinking I am doing something wrong. Feel free to look at my reel/cv and tell me what you don’t like, or what you would like to see more of. I am working on some personal projects to pass the time, so I can include more of my own work.
Anyone got some tips for getting into Framestore/MPC/The Mill/ The Senate/ Machine/ Double Negative/Ect? Or, basically getting a job in the UK would be nice!
