Hey guys, being part right now of TAD to be a student next year, I would like to create a place in here to know each other, so the list of questions that I put here are:
0. WHOOOO ARE YOU!!!!
1. Where are you from?
2. What are your TAD expectations, fears, and all the roller coaster of emotions of this journey???
3. Are you working right know? How do you think you can manage it?
4. Are you planning to go to US for the 3 week workshops?
5. How the industry is moving in your country, do you think you can apply all that you're going to learn to the environment you are?
Well I think we can add more and more on the way
Mines are! Vicente Numpaque 25 years old on december! I'm from Bogota Colombia, y do 3d sculpting of characters in a postproduction company called RCN Comerciales
My expectations are everything, I'm hoping for the best, even if i'm online I want to know every single teacher and TAD, learn and make friends, I think it's important in this way that you not only think of learning but at the same time learn from other people experiences, that makes us grow a lot, We are different ages, sex, and cultures, combine all that together can be definitely a power source for what is about to come, who knows, that people that you don't know maybe can be your partner at a game studio!
At this moment for January I can't go to the workshop I need to save money, get a visa, I think that's a fear for me, to be limited when the day is coming for the workshops, also I think I would like to be present in a onsite class, that would be tons of times better. For now, my inversion in life is to get in TAD no matter how, and the online thing is the best for those who can't go onsite at this moment.
The industry here... Well I think there's a lot of movement, but there are a lot of things that need to be fixed, one of those is that we need a career, a place where people doesn't learn just a software, we need concepts, more work on ideas, that's what we need, Serious formation it's important to people.
One of my fears often comes when I think I need to get out to US to find a job, because we here are often sorrounded by very little creativity from the agency s, they only look for ideas on youtube, and that can be frustrating to know that you don't have to think, you have to do what is in the reference!
Well, let's gets started people, I think if teachers can say just a little Hi here, and their thoughts on online education will be really worth!!
