Okay, so this is borrowed slogan from Nike. And, it is very pertinent to today. I must be asked almost every day...
"How do I get my start?"
"How do I get work out there?"
The answer is: "Just do it!"
If you're passionate about the art form- just do it!
Today, I have a whole studio (Flipbook) on my computer. I can test, create storyboards, create BG's and scan the final - all on one machine.
I am doing it, you can too!
Right at the moment, I am writing the third draft of a screenplay and finishing an animated short film, MIMI AND GACK.
It is a mind set- and as you do more, you build momentum. Right now, I know so many artists who are using the tools to create. It can be as simple as: paper and pencil or a computer with Photoshop. Yes, it can be basic - and you have to start somewhere.
Two of my best examples are Bill Plympton and newcomer Tom Kyzivat.
You all know of Plympton...
Check out some of Tom's work... he even does the sound effects himself...
Enjoy and then go out and JUST DO IT!
