Resumes and reels are a constant source of frustration for students and new graduates. What to include? How much? How should it be presented? All are very important questions, and with answers that vary widely depending on the experience level of the applicant, and the position to which they're applying.
Dave Vandervoort and Anna Kvorning will be coming to visit from LAIKA on March 2nd. This a recruiting event and they will be reviewing reels. An application form for students to send in their work ahead of time is available, as they will be reviewing most of the reels before the event.
