Jedi Academy Graduate Program

3 of my Students got selected for the Jedi Academy Graduate Program in July! They have since completed the program and Javier and Pamela got hired as compositors at ILM! How Freaking AWESOME is that! Nilson is on a break and most likely will be joining them in January.

After accomplishing all my goals for Lost Boys, I made a new 5 year goal earlier this year. To train one student so well that they can work at ILM as compositor right out of school. I guess I am going to have to set a new goal now.

Usually It took an artist 5 years working in the industry before they are even considered. And now I have 3 that got hired at ILM almost right out of my program.

Fun Fact! In total 5% of all the students I have thought are working at ILM at the moment!
