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.
