“My first job out of ACG Yoobee was as a 3D Generalist at a small start-up game company called nVisions Interactive. I’d applied for more than 100 jobs, but the key is to never give up! From there I became a 3D intern at Albedo VFX working on The Patriarch, and then I received an email asking if I’d like to come and work for Weta Digital. I had applied for jobs at Weta so many times since graduating from ACG Yoobee, so when I got that email I was so excited. I couldn’t believe it – actually I still can’t!
“My role there is as a Junior 3D Animator and I’m currently working on Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip. Weta Digital is an awesome place to work. Everyone is so nice and welcoming and always willing to help. Every day is different and I love being around other creative people and learning more and more. One day I hope to become a 3D Animation Lead here.
“ACG Yoobee was a big help in regards to getting started in my career, as even after I’d graduated I was still able to go back and ask for advice. They also offered a lot of networking opportunities and taught me about deadlines and industry workflow, which definitely helped me get where I am today. My group project won the 2013 ACG Yoobee School of Design Excellence Awards which was exciting, but for me the real highlight of studying at ACG Yoobee was the people. I made lifelong friends there. Everyone is friendly and always willing to help and the tutors are full of advice and knowledge and really helped me gain industry experience.”
