ACG Yoobee taught me pretty much everything there is to learn to be in this industry, like loads of new software and techniques, fast and efficient workflows. It was pretty full on though – I was working the graveyard shift at a gas station throughout my studies. During some of our projects I’d be in at the campus in the weekends, between shifts, and also come in early in the mornings during the week. There were a few times I stayed up for days straight without any sleep – my personal record was four days! But it was worth all the hard work.
I’m 23 years old and I still watch heaps of cartoons and play lots of games! I just wanted to be a part of it all – a part of this industry where your imagination can run wild!
Now I’m working as a modelling intern at Huhu Studios up in Snells Beach. We’re working on a kids TV show called Sindbad & the 7 Galaxies. It’s about a 14 year old boy named Sindbad and his friends’ after school adventures, and their fight to save the 7 galaxies from disaster. I love working in the creative industries – I love the beginning and the final parts of production, and the whole process that’s involved. Imagine you have an idea, and then imagine that idea comes to life in front of your eyes. It’s just fascinating!
Eventually I hope to end up in the gaming industry – it’s skyrocketing right now. I’d love to work somewhere like Ubisoft or Naughty Dog. 343 Industries and Rockstar Games would be a dream come true!
