I was enrolled in the FX Greenlight program, which included Particles, Pyro, RBDs, FLIP, etc. As I worked on the feedback my trainers gave me and iterated on the effects I created, I could see myself inching towards producing quality work and getting a hold of the concepts that were taught. What more could success be to a fresher, than getting his first step into DNEG!
The process of learning, practicing, and creating was an enjoyable process. I was in fact thrilled to see how much I could pull off with the knowledge I gained in the stipulated time. Tremendous!
When the program started, trying to achieve a certain kind of output in a given time was a challenge. This course demanded a proper work schedule. I must say this opportunity helped me manage my time efficiently. The most important takeaway was time management, apart from the industry-specific knowledge.
Imparting in-depth knowledge of the tools we learned about during the program was the best thing our trainer did. I was not just taught ‘how’ to do an effect with a particular tool, but also ‘how’ it does what it does. They were just a message away for help and made sure there were no roadblocks as I progressed.
Sometimes, jumping straight into production might not work for some. In the Greenlight India Training Program, you get to breathe the fresh air of the workplace, learn the basics, adapt to the environment, gear yourself up, get accustomed to the style of work, and confidently hit your desk. You’re ready to go! (You’ll get a good bunch of buddies too!!)
Follow the schedule for a smooth completion. Don’t hold back when you have doubts. Try to ask. You’ll gain more. Stamp your uniqueness. Ace it with elan.
