If you need the best VFX career advice you need to go to those who have done it all. Sitting across from me is Brian Kubovcik, head of studio and senior VFX supervisor for FuseFX in Atlanta. His CV reads like a greatest hits list of the hottest TV shows and streaming movies in recent years, from Succession to She-Hulk and, my personal favourite, No One Will Save You. Who better to get some career advice from?

"Speaking from personal experience, it's always about coming as a team player, that's the biggest thing," he tells me. Kubovcik is quietly spoken and precise in his wording. He takes a moment to think, before saying, "And understanding," by which he explains newcomers to the VFX industry can get disheartened by critiques and the constant need to make changes.
