The VFX Apprentice Podcast is for people who love Visual Effects, CG, 3D, Film, Games or VR. It’s for student, hobbyists, and professionals alike. Join our host Andrew Buttigieg as he interviews artists and learns about their individual journeys, past and present projects, tips and tricks, and advice for breaking into the industry.
Living and working in Melbourne, Australia, I've been in the IT industry since 2000 specialising in Data Warehousing, Reporting, Integration, and Programming, including Web Apps, Desktop Apps, and Mobile Apps. During that time I've presented at conferences, obtained a Masters of Systems Development, lead awarded winning projects, and run the Business Intelligence and Analysis department for a Multinational Construction company. I've been a lifelong fan of 3D and VFX, and was first introduced to the Maya back in 2008 when I undertook a Certificate III in Media at the Academy of Interactive Entertainment. Life then got busy, and 3 children later I returned to the world of 3D in 2013 and started learning Blender, and subsequently Modo. I’m now focusing on increasing my skills and building an awesome demo reel to transition across into the VFX industry.
