My name is James, and I’m from the land of biltong and boerewors - Cape Town, South Africa, currently living and working in Dubai.
I am working as a motion design art director at Impact BBDO in the in-house production department. I would call myself a generalist in the industry. With my job scope ranging from your average “advertising” motion design spot to “heavy” VFX. Due to my odd career choices within the industry and the lack of big production in South Africa I have developed this weird jack of all trades master of none sort of thing. May be a bit harsh on my self there.
I joined Learn Squared because of my admiration of Ash and the hugely skilled mentors here especially the fact that I have been following their work for years and finally get to hear directly from them, their processes and thinking, with real world examples and projects. Obviously to learn as much as I can and to be a part of a “global school”.
I hope to share and grow my knowledge as much as possible through this awesome portal. Thanks again so much. You can check out my work on Behance https://www.behance.net/JimboElgie and Vimeo https://vimeo.com/jameselgie.
