"I’m not only learning the essentials of VFX but also key networking tips from my mentor."
I started CG Spectrum with no experience in visual fx. Initially the thought was quite daunting as I hadn't done much in the field prior. In my opinion the education with CG Spectrum is the closest to giving me actual industry experience since I’m working alongside an industry vet whilst being taught the fundamentals of my trade. I can comfortably say I have more of a "peer to peer" relationship rather than "teacher to student", making it really easy to share my work and expect solid criticism.

"I am very excited about how much I have achieved!"Self-teaching as a tool is cool if you don't mind getting no interaction or help as well as learning older versions of software. Thankfully, CG Spectrum has been giving me the total opposite and an opportunity to push myself every step closer to the industry. With great resources at CG Spectrum, I learn not only how to craft but also how to think and prepare myself to be industry ready.
