My name is Benjamin. I am a 21 year old student, currently enrolled at Southampton Solent University studying CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) where I will graduate in 2018. I also work part time for EE (Phone Company) as a Sales Advisor, which I have been doing since February 2014.
My goal in life is to work in the Film industry, ever since a little boy I always admired films, not just for the emotions I had watching them, but how they were made and what it took to create certain parts of them amazed me.
The dream is to work as a Digital Compositor for a company like Framestore, MPC, ILM, Double Negative etc. It is a huge desire of mine and I know I need to start at the bottom to get to the top, which I am fully prepared to do.
Sadly my Dad passed away in 2016, after a long battle with terminal cancer. He was my hero and a huge inspiration to me, the most memorable thing he ever said to me was "When you're young, time lasts longer. So don't waste it, and fight for what you want". Those words mean even more to me now that I am in a position where I have almost finished University, and am looking to get my foot in the door of the Film and VFX Industry.
I want to make my Dad, and my family proud and I will stop at nothing until I reach my goals. But of course the most important thing is that I enjoy the ride I am going to take.
