I'd say "I'm back!" but most of you probably don't know or remember me.
So, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Keegan and I am an NYC-based Director, VFX artist, and Motion designer. I got my start using FXhome's products including Hitfilm and now I am making a living in the industry -- something I thought I might never be able to do.
Many of you here are hobbyists, making films in your free time with this amazing and accessible suite of software. But others, I know, want to make filmmaking their career.
For those in the latter camp, this is for you. "Real Talk" is going to be a series of videos on "making it" in the industry of film, TV, and digital video. For me, personally, it's been a long and hard journey trying to break into one of the most exclusive industries on the planet. In these videos, I will break down some of the worst advice I received on my journey that I'm sure many of you have heard before:
And, lastly, I just want to stress that these videos aren't for self-promotion or as a way to push my "brand" or something weird like that. What I really want this to be is a way to give back to the community that helped me get to where I am. So, with that being said, feel free to drop me a line here, on YouTube, or on social media @KeeganLarwin and I'll do my best to answer any questions you might have.
Thanks, everyone and enjoy the first episode of "Real Talk": DON'T LISTEN TO PEOPLE ON THE INTERNET. (teehee)
