Get to know the talented professional artists and animators who make up the team of educators here at CG Spectrum, starting with 3D Modelling Mentor Jeremy Chinn.
Jeremy Chinn has been a lead modeller and title designer on probably every big film you have heard of in the last 8 years. Guardians of the Galaxy, Tomorrowland, Big Hero 6, Life of Pi, Frozen, Maleficent...the list goes on and on. He is also one of our best 3D modelling instructors.
We recently asked him if he could help shed some light on what a so called 'day-in-the-life-of' a professional modeller was like. Most of you reading this article are probably trying to decide on a career path to take in digital art and animation but might not be sure if it is right for you. Maybe you are a fresh school leaver and don't have access to talk to a creative professional first hand. We would like to help you by giving you an inside look on the day-to-day grind for an industry pro straight from his mouth.
"My day typically starts with a coffee. After a few different studios and creamer quality inconsistency I recommend learning to drink it black. As a lead R&H, I liked to get in a little early. There was usually a small crowd of supervisors that would get in early and it became the perfect time to informally go over new workflows and any shower epiphanies about the project that morning. As 9 rolled around we were off as usual. For the modeling department, dailies would usually start fairly early so we could get the needed notes to work on for the rest of the day. After the notes were gathered the show lead makes the rounds to the other modelers on the team to give out the assignments for the day before starting work on my own model, but not before some more coffee.
