Craig Moore (Ashitaka)
Week 0 – 1 week before starting my placement at DR Studios
So, next week I begin what I can only accurately describe as my “dream job”, for two months I will be doing what I have wanted to do since I was a child.
In all honestly I have intentionally not been reading the other students work diaries, I’m not one for making my mind up via other people’s views and get huge satisfaction from making my own choice through my own experiences. Therefore everything which I am about to embark on is unexpected, which is certainly adding to my excitement. Thankfully my current work have granted me two months of sabbatical (if you don’t ask you don’t get right?) so without the worry of having to find a new job at the end I can hit this experience with all I can throw at it and hopefully get the most out of it.
What am I expecting? I am expecting to learn how to effectively use my skills and knowledge and apply them to the industry in a professional way. I am quietly confident I can do this, possibly too confident. But I have nothing to lose and everything to gain from this whole placement and having already met a large chunk of the people I will be working with and gotten a feel for the process from the course work I have already done I am prepared and ready to go!
Will see how I feel a week in
