Sydney SIGGRAPH Masterclass 2014 :
How Not To Go Broke For A Living

Date: Saturday 1st November 2014

Time: 9:45am to approx 3:30pm

Venue: Enmore Centre for Design, Edgeware Road, Enmore

Speakers include: Nick Hore and Patricia Kung from Animal Logic, Murray Debus (who has 30 years’ experience as a Director and Animation Director across feature films, TV series and TVC).

As working in industry settles into a rhythm of contract and serial employment for a significant proportion of the workforce, this Masterclass has been designed to nurture the ‘working artist’ for a lifelong career. The sessions will address how to apply for job vacancies, how to represent yourself as an independent artist and how to secure work on an independent/contract basis.

Sessions will cover: how to present your work, how to present yourself, freelance contracting and staying in work, how to calculate your charge-out rate and how to build your reputation.
