I’m submitting this app prototype Please let the ‘environment’ load first. Once the images are loaded you can use this prototype as a normal app. Use your mouse to click on every possible button. I have tried to include every possible functions with this cool and easy design for the app.

I am sharing this article that was originally posted on entrepreneur.com, because I personally liked it and enjoyed it.

Ever wonder what it’s like to make a million dollars?

I’m not gonna lie, the first million in sales my company did was kinda surreal.

Especially since I was broke, in debt, and sleeping on my sisters couch just two years prior.

And to be honest, as big of a dream that it was for so long, it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be.

I just needed to shift a few things to make it happen. Once I did, it made so much sense to me on how to build a business online.

This is just my journey.

This is how I did it.

This is NOT the only way.

And anyone can do it… if they put the right pieces together.

This is episode 27 of The School of Greatness with me… AKA The Solo Round.

I encourage everyone to watch this heartbreaking documentary about the dissolution of the accomplished and lauded visual effects studio Rhythm & Hues (where some friends of mine worked), yet another high-profile casualty of the collapsing VFX industry due the turbulent, ill-structured quagmire that is the movie business. My old buddy Scott Leberecht did a wonderful job directing and editing this story. Definitely worth 30 minutes of your time, particularly if you make your living where art and commerce overlap.

The green avatars represent the green-screen, a key tool in visual effects moviemaking.

Changing your avatar to a green-screen represents solidarity with the computer graphics industry which is currently being plagued by bankruptcy and layoffs (like what happened to me last week ORZ…): Digital Domain, Sony Entertainment, DreamWorks Animation, Pixomondo, Zynga, and more.

The “greenscreen movement” is largely prompted by bankruptcy of Rhythm and Hues, the company responsible for two Oscar-nominated movies this year: Snow White and the Huntsman and Life of Pi. Just weeks before the ceremonies, much of their staff (the people that made those movie!) got laid off - many of those workers picketed outside the Academy on Oscar’s night.  Insult was added to injury when Life of Pi won an Oscar for ‘Best Visual Effects’ and the winner’s acceptance speech was cut short as soon as he mentioned the financial issues at R&H (it may not have been intentional, but it still read terribly!).

VFX is highly competitive.  When a studio wants to make a movie, VFX houses name a price they can do the work for.  Obviously, studios want lower prices and faster work, so VFX houses frequently under-bid each other and ask for unreasonable workdays.  Studios thus get more demanding and drive prices into unsustainable territories.  In addition, some areas provide subsidies for local VFX work - up to 30%! - meaning studios only have to pay for 70% of the movie.  Taxpayers cover the rest.  So globally, it’s an uneven playing field.  California doesn’t give subsidies, so established Hollywood houses are losing bids that were already too low to begin with.  This Reddit post does an amazing job explaining the situation.

While layoffs are familiar in project-based industry, this is a LOT in just a few months, and it brings an unhealthy business model to public light.  I encourage you - if you want to work in this field or simply enjoy VFX movies - to research and appreciate the work that goes into them - and maybe we can collectively hope for change.

So recently this academy award winner #VFX studio — Framestore — had an interaction with its followers on twitter from their official handle.
They urged the artists to post questions with hash-tag #AskFramestore and answered most of them. I am including screenshots with Q&A in this post.
Thought this could help armature #VFX artists (like me) to plan their paths to get into this fine industry of 3D/VFX.

(These screenshots include replies (top) to the asked questions (bottom))
