Default Interview for me - whoo hoo

OH MY GOD ... Finally a interview for a Job within the 3D world.

Its just a runner job but still - It`s for the Mill in London.
Have to phone them tomorrow to set it up - but this has put a big smile on my face.

Any tips or ideas what they will ask me will be massively welcome right now as I really can`t mess this interview up. I feel like its Christmas and I`m ten years old.

After the last few months this is the best thing to happen for me.

Ah it will be fine !

Mega enthusiasm but thats a given. Other than that be aware of the roles you will be doing after running and show you know what will be expected of you.

Maybe read some junior 3D job descriptions so you know what might be expected of you and you can read up on anything your not sure about.

e.g. if they say, after a while we will probably get you doing some matchmove, have you done any before?

Dont say: `what's matchmove? `

GZ on the interview!

Stupid question but what do you do as a runner? Never heard that term before, but then again I'm not in the 3D world

@Vortexx pretty much you run around and do what ever they tell you. Can be anything from pick up the rushes to fetch tea.

Its a very popular way into the tv or film business, I did it myself for a while when i worked at tristar many many years ago.

OK starting to get stuff together for wed - But should I take work in for a runners position.

Another problem I got is what do I wear - I know a suit may be over the top, but a job interview is also too much in the wrong direction.

Nothing wrong with a suit mate. Though a casual jacket blazer shirt is okay. Ive done a couple of interviews in a blazer, shirt jeans and smart shoes, got the job both times so....

My advice put a suit on. Shows your serious and you can be assed to make an effort. You might want to skip the tie though
