Hello everyone,

I've been doing motion graphics, print & web design for about 10 years, but I was recently layed off. I had been the art director-designer at my local tv-station.

My website is at www.stevedilley.com if you'd like to take a look.

II've studied vfx for the last 10 years trying to keep up. A lots changed (& the fx business seems more intimidating than ever).

Could anyone working in the industry give me any practical career wisdom, advice/help?
What people look for, software, strength of portfolio, learning on the job, what size of shop to start at???

I'd appreciate your help!
