I can't take that credit though, his reel is so good, he really didn't need any help, his skills did all the work. Too bad he couldn't stay on, he did great work.

what can you tell us about contracts at the feature film shops? Cameron got hired on a 2 month contract and then a vague idea that maybe he'd get picked up again in 6 months. Is everyone on temporary contracts that expire every 6 months or so? Or can you climb high enough that you get employed and stay employed?

@anonymous: I wouldn't know, sorry. That's all very specific to each new employee.

Cam Fielding rocks..Really dig his Turok animation and has a great blog. I use his Shotview script, its the best. http://www.creativecrash.com/maya/downloads/scripts-plugins/animation/c/shotview

Great to read about how people make it thru risks and hard work. Gives people trying, more energy to push more to reach their goals.
