I've been waiting years and years to finally post in here! I just scored my first one year contract at a cool animation studio here in Vancouver. I actually went for 3 interviews this month at 3 companies and the first 2 were pretty intense, so this last one was a bit more chill. The first one was akin to speed dating, but was speed interviews; myself and 9 other candidates were interviewed by 10 interviewers, 5 minutes each. After that, each person needed to stand in front of all interviewers and candidates (19 people) and have their portfolios on a big screen, and talk about their art. The next interview, I was interviewed by a panel of 4 people. This third interview was pretty chill with my to-be supervisor, and I just found out I got the job last night as a junior modeler!https://thomasfraser.artstation.com/
Recently got picked up by the Star Wars team at Respawn Entertainment as a Hard Surface Artist. My first real AAA gig! 😀
Here's a little bit of background to put some things into perspective. I've been working in "serious video games" for military/training purposes since July of 2018 at Pinnacle Solutions. Before that I worked remote contract gigs for 2 - 3 years.
Not exactly recent, but I've been making some stuff for Path of Exile 1&2 for a little over 2 years (wow where does time fly)! My portfolio has been entirely neglected. I will come back to it...
Here's some MTX! Interesting transition from indie to AAA, I'm pretty sure I can do better by now. I was responsible for the concept/design and highpoly sculpts.
Super excited that I can finally post in this thread! I recently got hired as Environment Artist at Turn 10 to work on Forza! This is my first AAA job!
Here is my small background: After I graduated from the university, I have been working at Miliarty Simulation for the USA Airforce for a couple of years. And then, I worked on the unannounced tv show at BRON for almost a year.
Thank you, everyone on Polycount, for all of the advice, feedback, and support!
Hi there, I join Turn 10 after graduate. now working on Forza as Biome Artist. In my junior year I was at 343i making some cool Halo art. Thanks for these two exciting opportunities. Now I want to show people what I did. 😘 Thank you for watching 🤗
