Hello all! I’m coming to the end of my contract. I have been working on a tv series for 8 months now. I have had a long hard think about what I want to do next and the games industry is what I want to break into.
would it be possible for some one to have a look over my cv to see if I fit.
I will pm it to anyone who is willing to offer advice.
Very nice reel! The showreel is most of the battle to be honest – once you can demonstrate that you have the skills, your CV just details where you got them from.
The only thing missing there from a game point of view is low-res models. Displaying some efficiently low-poly modelled characters can be very helpful. I know that with next-gen titles, low-poly modelling may not be considered to be as essential, but making as efficient use of the polys is always a must – & low-poly modelling is the best way of showing said skills. Maybe even showing a wireframe of the characters you have worked on to display the poly density & unifrom resolution.
On the other hand, if you’re purely an animator, and not a modeller, that can work too, but only in large development studios where the company can afford to employ individuals working in a very specific discipline.
