Nat Hadaway
26:41
So you like to help new applicants learn on the job as well?
Farhan Kamal
27:34
Couple of question. What does the company/team consist of like animators, project managers, producer, etc.? Also, do you guys hire sound designers on projects, whether full-time or contract?
Audrey Crum
27:56
what jobs are typically given to college age applicants?
Debanhi Gonzalez
29:55
Thank you.
Casey Dutton
31:34
Yeah, that's what I meant with the age question! Thank you! That's crazy to me but makes me excited. I turn within the next 2 weeks soon so I wanted to make sure that wasn't too young since I'm interested.
Angel Jaimes
31:43

I've heard crunch culture can be really encouraged in certain studios so it's really refreshing to hear that!
Angela Medina

Farhan Kamal

Audrey Crum

do you guys hire voice directors? if so what do they do exactly and how do people move to that position ?
Jasmine Dillard
42:54
Dang you're really selling this for me, I'll have to see what jobs are available 😂
Angel Jaimes
43:21
To add on Audrey's question, what opportunities or likelihood are there for sound & audio designers in applying into the animation industry? I'd assume its just below the number of animators and storyboardists, but I'm curious to know their likelihood of applying.
Nat Hadaway
43:59
I can’t wait to get my hands on the castlevania art book

Jamil Hooper
50:38

Message!!! Instagram...lol
Tim Lin

What are you looking for when you say a portfolio outside of artstation? Website?
Debanhi Gonzalez
51:46
I just followed on twitter and I found the SDCT twitter as well lol
Andres Molina
51:47
What if you aren't active on Twitter or Instagram for artwork?
kelly zhang (she/her)
52:09
thank you so much, I have to head to class!
Tim Lin
52:17
thank you!
Isabel Tweraser

You can make a personal website on Wix or Wordpress for free! Totally agree Laura, great idea
Nat Hadaway
54:19
What else constitutes an automatic no?
Zach Thomsen (he/him)
55:02
I know a lot of artists are using Behance for their portfolio. In your opinion, would that be considered acceptable or would you rather see applicants have their own personal website (not affiliated with an existing website like Behance)?
Zach Thomsen (he/him)
56:01
^ apologies if a similar question has already been asked. I don't remember hearing anything about it though, so I figured I would ask anyway!
Zach Thomsen (he/him)
57:48
Okay, thank you!

It helped me feel less intimidated by the industry lol
Andres Molina
01:00:01
Can you get accepted or have a high chance of acceptance with just Artstation, or will it increase with social media account? similar question to before.
