SUCCESS STORY: Al Lukehart

Major: Communication Arts

Graduation
Date:
May 11, 2012

Company Name/Position Title: I
currently do contract work for Westart Productions as a mobile video game artist
and monster designer, as well as freelancing.

How the
Career Center helped me:
The Career Center was a great resource for me. I
went there specifically for resume advice. When I brought the first version of
my resume for review, it was too long and not focused enough. I wrote it like I
would a resume for a desk job or more conventional business. Ms. Waterman helped
me tailor my resume to finding work in the art
industry.

Any insights that you have for current
students:
Just like an artist’s portfolio, your resume is uniquely your own.
No one can write it for you – but you certainly don’t have to be alone in
the journey. The Career Center will help you finish important, necessary steps
to actualizing your dream job.

Visual Effects & Motion Graphics Artist/Compositor needed for Discovery Network television series about the paranormal

This is a paid position, and an opportunity for someone seeking a
career in this field. Not only will this provide an excellent credit for your
resume, but countless high quality visual effects for your reel. Our last two
effects artists working on this series moved directly to high paying jobs at top
Hollywood visual effects houses. (True story.) We’re seeking a talented creative
driven person with their own work station who’s looking for their first break.
He/she should possess a strong aesthetic vision and CGI skills including
rotoscoping, compositing with live action elements, erasing wires and such from
on-set special effects, etc. The successful candidate should be able to work
within the tight deadlines of a production schedule, and have a proficiency
using software such as After Effects, Smoke, Flame, Particles, and/or similar
programs. A knowledge of broadcast standards is a plus. The job will run for
approximately 3 months beginning around the end of May. The company is located
in Southeast Virginia.

Graduates should send their applications to larry.silverman@newdominion.com
with a resume and cover letter. No phone calls. They should have reels available
upon request. If they have one online, they can include a link. Otherwise, they
can send it separately to:
