Evaluation: Work placement @ Picasso Pictures

Sadly I can't apload any visual material for half a year. So only after that time I'll publish a large post of  entire production.

In the mean time these are  main points I’m taking away from the past two weeks:

Perhaps most memorable were times where conversation with industry’s professional felt really easy, just  simple sharing of experience, jokes  ect. Happy moments.

I took note on the advantages/disadvantages of working at a small company too . The environment feels very  informal. You get to know staff as close  friends . It also means there will be more of variety in assignments. Directors and producers expect you to be knowledgeable in many fields, therefore supposedly it promises less of a routine. ( for example one day a post-prod guy  was even doing a voice over for a commercial himself ).

From  health POV  clearly  it is necessary to do some sports. Everyone in the studio was doing either yoga, or going to gym, or swimming ect.  Buy the way, shockingly to me, almost everyone in the building looked awful lot younger their real age. I’ve mised  ages by an interval of 6-7 years! A friend suggested one day later I chose a good industry to help stay young  :D

I learned that a workday in a studio depends highly on which side of the fence you’re at. For example, a day of painting was a totally different experience to a day of laying out UV’s. I see now that it is very important to choose your work field wisely and from day one try and earn your stripes in it, so that with confidence you could step into it and no day would be a drag or bring exhaustion filled with doubts of your career choice.

Funny, but this is also what’s left vivid in my head. One day I was doubtful about the entire game in this field,  and we started discussing that. One of the colleagues brought a funny point. He said that at least we don’t get uniform or a suit, we get to be with our own closes. That somehow and weirdly tied up a lot for me. 

I'm gald I had these two weeks, thanks to Phil and Alan :]
