- No matter what field you go into, the most important thing to have is good people skills.
- In visual effects, every detail matters, not a single pixel can be off. Your cover letter will also reflect off this and it needs to be perfect to even be given a chance.
- Problem solving skills apply everywhere. More often than not, every effect will be you making something completely new and a new challenge awaits you. You need creativity not just to make the effect, but also to design it.
