So as of writing this I have been working for Sentrieal for just over a month and a half now and I must say it is a very challenging and informative workspace to be in, not only in terms of my own work but with the insight into how small businesses work and the lengths they go to in order to secure a client or make sure a product has been tried and tested ready for the client.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with programs like Blender, Unity and the Adobe Creative suite, technology like the Ricoh Theta S 360 Camera, I’ve been able to really improve my skills in the likes of Photoshop and especially After Effects as these programmes have been the core part of my workflow.
So far I’ve had the opportunity to work on two projects as of late, both of these projects were animation based which doesn’t really entertain me purely for the fact that I’m not suited for animation but I give them a go regardless in an attempt to help me improve working with After Effects and at least help to give me a slight insight into how to approach 2D animations.
The Sentireal USP video was a short explainer video outlining the work that we do here at Sentireal, which was a good starting off point when I joined at the start of June, the NI Open explainer video, explaining the brand new format for the golf tournament, however, was a different story. This project lasted over a month and a half and really opened my eyes to the reality of client work, the pressure of delivering upon the client’s high expectations and getting used to and dealing with criticism from various outlets.more importantly, it taught me how to come to terms with making content for the client and not just for myself anymore.
