THOMPSON

Hi, I'm Jack. A 3D Animator who specialises in Rigging and who takes pride in his work. I am proficient in a variety of styles and have a desire to work on projects that people enjoy and have an impact on their lives. Although my current work is at a high standard, I believe I am capable of much, much more and the chance to do that excites me.

GET TO KNOW JACK

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB TO START YOUR CAREER WITH?

I aspire to be a Remote Freelancer. So my dream start would be a freelance position at a studio where I am given responsibility. I'd love to work on a project that allows me to showcase my ability and also gives me the opportunity to hone my skill-set even more.

DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN FIVE WORDS OR LESS.

Driven. Technical. Selfless. Resourceful.

WHAT THREE THINGS WOULD YOU TAKE TO A DESERT ISLAND? AND WHY?

My PC. And Peace and Quiet. I'm back home with all my family at the minute and alone on a desert island sounds like a dream.

WHAT ARE YOUR BIGGEST STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES?

My biggest strength is speed. I organise myself very well in order to be as efficient and productive as I can while maintaining a high level of quality. My biggest weakness is my work/life balance. Especially through this lockdown, the main thing I've struggled with is stopping work and relaxing.

TELL US AN ACHIEVEMENT YOU'RE PROUD OF.

I'm proud of how hard I've worked for this degree. None of my projects are perfect, but the amount of effort I put into the last three years is what I consider to be my biggest achievement.

WHAT YOU RATHER BE A WIZARD, JEDI OR SUPERHERO? AND WHY?

A Wizard. Wizards could cast a spell to do anything a Jedi or Superhero could do. Jedi and Superheros are limited to their own abilities. I'd rather be a Jack of All Trades than a One Trick Pony.

IF YOUR LIFE WAS A MOVIE WHAT WOULD IT BE?

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I've always had a very old head on my shoulders, and being wise for my age is something I've always taken pride it. With that being said, I've never seen the film, so I could have it completely wrong.

WHY DO YOU DESERVE A GREATER SHARE OF SPACE IN THE YEARBOOK?

I deserve more space because I'm humble. It's one of my many, many, many good qualities.
