A THEORY OF EVOLUTION
How has the growth of Digic changed for its employees?
“I have accepted long ago that things have changed, and will be changing. it is completely clear to me that if we want to move beyond the kind of projects that we can do as a small team then we have to expand. If we want to do something more than a one-minute trailer with five characters, if we want to do something like an animated feature, we have to grow for that. Things will have to change as the company grows, and so i have accepted it. As i said, sometimes i miss the old days, sometimes i don’t.”
“When i came here there was about 40 people, so the company was mostly started by these guys. I really like that scale, because in that scale you can know everybody. I think that it’s a really good size for a company and since then, as it grows, all of these guys became higher roles in their departments, which means that in our department – the animation department – there is, again, about 30 people. So it is the same size in the animation department as when i started. Again, i can feel that it is a good number, because we can know each other and we can have friendships with all of the guys in the animation department, and still have those friendships around in the other departments. I think growing together in a company like this it really makes you connected to other departments.”
“I have only ever worked in one company before Digic, so i don’t have too much of an idea of how it is to work somewhere else, but what i like about here at Digic is that inside the lighting team i have quite a lot of good friends, so the mood of the team is quite good, and sometimes we go on holiday together for a few days. The working environment [here is] perfect, maybe the projects could be less, but as i said, the creative freedom of what we can do or what we are responsible for is quite positive for me.”
