Work on Breathtaking Productions

Are you finding it confusing and frustrating to apply for your next or first job in Visual Effects, Animation, or Games? Do you receive no response or a disappointing "We regret to inform you!" without any constructive feedback on how to improve for your next application? It can feel like hitting a brick wall, leaving you with doubts about your skills and self-worth.

 

Don't worry! This is a common experience for many job seekers, and it's rarely about our skills holding us back. It's about presenting ourselves in the right way, to the right company, at the right time. After experiencing countless rejections myself, I made it my mission to crack the application process and help others. My efforts landed me jobs at industry giants like Weta FX, Framestore, and Mackevision, as well as offers from Amazon Studios, Rockstar Games, Pixomondo, and Digic Pictures, among others.

 

Let me share my knowledge and guide you to a successful career in the industry. Together, we'll present your skills in the best possible light and land the job you've been dreaming of.

My story

Great Applications kickstarted my career!

When I first started in the visual effects and animation industry, I faced rejection after rejection. My 1st job even started with a rejection and turned into an offer a few days later. (Great start!) Applying for positions was an endless cycle of no feedback, no or generic replies:

 

"We're sorry to let you know, that your application has not been further shortlisted on this occasion." It felt like there was a wall I couldn't climb.

 

But instead of giving up, I decided to learn everything I could about the application process and improve my skills. Slowly but surely, I began to see success. I received more replies, landed interviews, negotiated contracts, and eventually landed jobs at the biggest studios in the industry like Weta FX, Framestore, Mackevision, ArtFx and CGMA with invitations by Amazon Studios, Pixomondo, Scanline VFX, Digic Pictures, Rockstar Games and many more. 

 

​Let me help you take the next step in your career. Together, we'll optimize your application materials and mindset to help you stand out and land the job of your dreams.
