So you want to work in animation in Los Angeles, but you live outside of California. How do you get here? How much should you save? How do you find a place to live? And once you get here, how do you get a foothold in the industry and advertise your work online and in person? Black ‘N Animated Podcast hosts and animation professionals Breana Williams and Waymond Singleton join us for part 2 of our animated life miniseries to share how they got into the industry, networking tips and showcasing your work via social media!
Working in the field of animation is often harder than most people would have you believe. That’s why we’re here to demystify the process! In this miniseries, your intrepid podcast hosts Angela and Jeff breakdown what it’s like living in LA. We tackle the cost of living, getting a survival job while you work to break into the industry (we’ve had plenty), getting an education, internships, getting critiques on your work, and so much more. We want you to succeed and learn from our successes and mistakes. In the coming weeks we’ll be bringing in guests to share their experiences as well. If you have any questions about the industry and living in LA, send them our way!
