Watch Finding Your Place in the 3D Industry for free


Gnomon School of Visual Effects has announced Finding Your Place in the 3D Industry: a free live discussion and Q&A with former Blur Studio lead character artist Jesse Sandifer this Thursday, 25 February.

During the course of the two-hour presentation, Sandifer – now senior 3D character artist at indie developer WhiteMoon Dreams – will be discussing how he switched careers from architecture to videogames.

As well as exploring the challenges of making such a career change – he is entirely self-taught – Sandifer will provide practical advice on how to market your skills to make yourself employable in other industries.

“I’m hoping to encourage everyone that their career dreams are possible,” says Sandifer. “It’s all about finding your place and being someone people like working with. The rest will take care of itself.”

Attend for free in LA, or watch for free online
Finding Your Place in the 3D Industry takes place from 7.30-9.30pm PST this Thursday, 25 February at Gnomon’s Hollywood campus. Entry is free, but you’ll need to register online first.

If you can’t make it to LA in person, Gnomon will be broadcasting the session free on its Livestream channel.
