The Business of Making Monsters - How to do what you love for a living
Running your own business may sound more terrifying than the monsters we make, but that's where Shannon Shea comes to the rescue with this new lesson series: The Business of Making Monsters - Part 1
As a veteran FX artist Shannon will help you lay the foundation for turning your creative passion into a profitable career in the arts. Calling upon his 30 years of experience as a supervisor for the leading character studios in Hollywood history (including Stan Winston Studio, KNB EFX & Rick Baker's Cinovation), Shea shares invaluable tips for creating an effective résumé, portfolio, and social media presence, as well as how to decide whether to work for others or start your own business.
Having watched the series, I can tell you that it contains a lot of extremely valuable information. You not only get a better understanding of the industry as a whole, you also learn how to interact with clients when bidding for a project.
Do any of you run your own small business?
