Does one have to be artistically-inclined to succeed in your field of expertise (do you have to be an artist)?

This report comes from the Official Site!

Answered by: David Dozoretz

To succeed in pre-visualization or visual effects, one does not necessarily need fine art skills. Certainly, if you're interested in painting textures, it helps to be able to paint. But many jobs in computer graphics require an understanding of fine art rather than the ability to draw like Picasso. I love to hire people who have studied and understand composition, lighting, color theory; because that comes up every day in what we do. For pre-visualization, it's even better if they have a firm grasp of film language and theory.
