Default An interview with Jason Edwards Senior Modeler at Windmill Lane VFX

Please take a look at this thread http://simplymaya.com/forum/showthread.php?p=316538 if you want a better idea of whats coming up along the same lines in the future.


In this interview Jason Edwards who's currently a Senior Modeler at Windmill Lane VFX in Dublin, shares some of his experiences from his time in the industry.

He's worked on a wide range of projects in both television and movies a lot of the things he talks about in this interview as well as some tips and tricks on how to land a job can be very helpful for those of you who are looking to get that first foot in the door at the moment.

It's also an interesting read for hobbyists to get a bit of an insight into the production pipelines that 3D applications like Maya are ultimately used for.
