For all of my creative people who are trying to make a career with their artistic instinct, I'd like to introduce you to someone
Trent Corrie. Ottawa, boy. Algonquin College. The Three-time Animation Oscar Winner. If you've seen movies like that
Maybe you're not an animator. But that doesn't mean you don't want to be
In this case, you have to ask yourself: how can you move from a child to a child in your notebook in the Ottawa audience to win the award in your industry (several times) and work in Disney?
After a short excursion, The Walt Disney Animation Studios (OMG), Trent and I sat in the ABC cafeteria to get an idea of my journey and share some experience that someone deserved to become the creator
Here's what you can find out from Trent
"It was a passion that grew just as I learned it."
Some people start with a passion that drives them through their entire lives, at this point, in one place where they feel they belong to
Some people aren't people. If you're not one of those people, don't push the panic button until
Inspired by the artist's young mother as interior designer, Trent was a child of doodling all during the year ... until the eighth grade. Then he stopped
He went to film and communication, spent his days together with short films, and also learned about the wines and the creamers of the film. Painting looks like something far away and totally unconnected
Class 12, his teacher put two and two on it; the animation could be an ideal combination of Trent's two passions. That thought never crossed his mind before
Even then he had no plans for the future: I could have presented him as an expert in kinesiology today if the wind blew the other way
At the Algonquin College, he was awarded a volleyball scholarship. They had an animated program. Trent didn' t see any reason not to try
After registering with Trent, there were several reservations. He remembered that the school had never considered art as a space to find the actual place of work. But Trent took the initiative to start serving only a year later in school. He got a job with Mercury Filmworks in Trent's portfolio, which was posted on the Internet application
Trent was suddenly immersing in the studio that was working on the top-level animations, the design of the projects for the Walt Disney Television
Trent threw himself on a storyboard, background, animation, training, training, practice, an indication of what he could do in the animation world
After he was offered a full-time job, he decided to finish his last year in college, in which he made a complete film
" It was fun. I got it on the last day. It will click. How all of them worked together, software, how to move objects, all of them. "
It was because Trent realized that Trent understood that there was passion in him: that's what he wanted to do
Trent could have found a way to animate, but once he did, it was time for the target
He knew where he wanted to go; Walt Disney Animation
With this only purpose, he built his briefcase. He ate at the festivals, met with recruiters, formed a relationship, opened his briefcase to reviews and critics. He chose and chose his job to find out what skills he would need for his dream studio
Disney canimer offered him to study 3D animation and work on his acting. Trent got a job with Sony, which opened it to get his first animation
" I've set targets every three to six months. Even now. Every day, let' s take a look at work, think maybe we can be different, better
Sometimes there's no direct path, but you get a target, you get a place where you should be on time
Trent was interested in it when it comes to his own career
You have to spend thousands of dollars studying the creative field? Not necessarily. YouTube, on YouTube, online courses, is much easier than ever to gain access to education, not to you
Trent says it was different when he first started working, but now he could use these tools to figure out how it really inspired the animation
" You can learn your own. It's all there. "
However, Trent admitted that there was something that could be said about interaction and cooperation with your colleagues. "Learning from osmosis," he called it. He also admitted that he probably wouldn't have gotten his first job if he wasn't at school
But at the end of the day, it's all about the persistence of the individual, how much they want, and how hard they're willing to work on this portfolio every recruiter
Trent was continuously working in his briefcase. He sent the recruiters to Disney three times a year, listened to criticism and worked on his specialty
He got an internal senate from a recruiter, and then a new, "Talent Development Program." If you select this program, you will become a paid student for the next six months
There's nothing Trent wouldn't give up on that train. He had three years after the expiration. He applied three times a year after that. But the refusals kept coming. Just like the feedback. And he went back to his specialty before he applied again
Last year, last month ... he finally got his "yes."
"They want to see your height, so don't be afraid of" No ". These are the same people who look at it. They are valuable, that you grow and listen to criticism. "
Of course, it's not over. This new assignment was competitive and only a few full work orders were available at the end of six months. But Trent knew where he was going, the recruiters were well aware of it, and he did it, in safety and in sound
Something Trent wanted him to know the way before he got his dream of his dream that it wasn't always about your value or talent as an artist
Anyone who lives in creative life usually lives in this bubble of constant self-criticism and doubts. But as one of the recruiters told Trent:
"It's just a matter of time."
Sometimes it's not just that you're ready. The company must be ready, too. Now is the time and the right place
If Trent had been applied and it was too early, it might not have been good enough to get this job at the end of the program. It's too late, and maybe there was no stains
"What's keeping me is this festival, meeting with recruiters, getting feedback and using them as motivation."
If you make every effort to focus on the main goal, which is increasing with each response and criticism, it will happen
Before he knew, Tent had made him a criterion that was good enough to get him
Trent knows perfectly well how artists compete with their own perfects. It's still in inches when the big screen shows the stage he was working on
" Sitting and watching that you and the whole group of people have received instant feedback. He wasn't there this morning, and then, here he is. It's like making magic every day. "
Let us hope that magic will continue to come, for Trent, for all the viewers that are connected to it, and for all future artists
