Milestones

Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Always loved drawing; he knew he wasn't the greatest artist, but he also knew he wanted to improve.
He went to the School of Visual Arts in New York City and majored in computer art.
The college had a close relationship with Framestore, so after graduation, he got his foot in the door as an intern.
In 2013, Framestore won a host of visual effects awards for their work on the film Gravity.
Says that the drive to improve will give you the leg up on someone who is naturally talented because you'll be prepared to work hard.
Believes that once you learn and accept that you'll have to work hard, that hard work gets easier.
Says familiarizing yourself with the vast scope of jobs that are out there helps ease the pressure of trying to fit yourself into one box.
Says it's hard not to rush through your work, and to want to be really good at something really quickly, but you have to have patience.
