The World is Flat.

In the world of CG, clear examples of flattners that are enabling artists from any where to rapidly develop skills at a competitive level. Online schools & watering holes are quickly outpacing brick & mortar talent pools.

DV Garage

100,000 Animation Drawing course.
10 Second Club (under recent trojan attack)
CG Society

Access to software, computers, expert feedback, and whole bunch dogged preserverance. The proliferation of talent could happen or will it.

ENFJ - First will be Last.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator(MBTI)

Here is mine ... ENFJ ... this trademark trait comment burns with truth.

"The first shall be last."

This refers to the open-door policy of ENFJs. One ENFJ colleague always welcomes me into his office regardless of his own circumstances. If another person comes to the door, he allows them to interrupt our conversation with their need. While discussing that need, the phone rings and he stops to answer it. Others drop in with a 'quick question.' I finally get up, go to my office and use the call waiting feature on the telephone. When he hangs up, I have his undivided attention!

I printed out the following statement in bold 26pt font and taped it to my screen; Last is First.

We'll see if that helps.

operator > passionate practitioner > manager

Rambling thought process.

An operator knows where all the buttons are at temporal moment, follows direction, and require training to change. The practitioner pursues quality, understands their value, operate independently, and proactively adapts to operate in evolving discipline. The managerer/leader has the business acumen and objectivity to discern just because you can doesn't mean you should. The manager can intuitively transform an evolving vision into actions that practioners and operators believe in. I might come back to this post.
