An­i­mate your­self

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In-Ah Roedi Ger -

Want to fol­low in In-Ah’s foot­steps? The artist re­veals you need to stand out from the crowd In-Ah has al­ways been in­ter­ested in teach­ing and help­ing new­com­ers to the an­i­ma­tion in­dus­try, in­clud­ing a full-time stint at Cen­tral Saint Martin’s in Lon­don dur­ing 2007/2008. “Usu­ally the ques­tion that gets asked most is ‘How do I get into the in­dus­try?’ and ‘What are the salaries like?’

“I al­ways say it’s im­por­tant to know what you want to do in the broad field of an­i­ma­tion. If you want to work in fea­ture an­i­ma­tion as a char­ac­ter an­i­ma­tor, you need to be pre­pared to be­come pretty spe­cialised in your field.

“Most im­por­tantly, I’ve known ju­niors to try and hide away in their cor­ners, which is prob­a­bly the worst thing you can do, es­pe­cially when new to a job! It’s im­por­tant to lose those fears and show work and progress of­ten.”

In-Ah was se­nior an­i­ma­tor on this lat­est

comic book re­boot – fea­tur­ing rather dif­fer­ent sub­jects than her usual work.

In-Ah is an ex­pe­ri­enced teacher as well as an­i­ma­tor, and this is some­thing she’d like to pur­sue fur­ther in the fu­ture.
