Put your best digital foot forward
Nick Hore and Patricia Kung, Animal Logic
Insight into the qualities and process behind recruiting for a big player like Animal Logic who may have their 150 permanent staff, but have numbers climb over 500 during peak productions. Lots of great advice on showreels etc - great stuff and inspiring for me to try and build something for what I have thus far...
