Hey, guys! In this episode, I am chatting with Prem Sai GS, an engineer from India who decided to change his career to follow his dreams of becoming an animator in California. He worked as a design intern at DreamWorks Feature Animation.
Get in touch with Prem
“If you really want something, just go for it, because you only live once!”
- Prem was an engineer back in India, but when he decided to pursue art full time, he soon realized he can learn to draw and work full-time at the same time, so he quit and studied hard for a year. The hardest thing to do is the right thing to do!
- Prem used to listen to an animation podcast with James Baxter back in India, and little did he know that thanks to his hard work and effort he would sit in James’ office three years later!
- Prem wishes he knew how much thinking is involved in art. How much you need to learn and think, how much things are changing. He would have jumped on it sooner!
