Guest Lecture: Ben Milisom

This week we had guest lecturer Ben Milisom come and speak to us.  Ben has had a very successful career working in set dress, visualization, production design and more recently directing roles.  He has worked on a variety of well known films in the past that are very easily recognized today such as; King Kong (2005), Avatar (2009), District 9 (2009), Yogi Bear (2010), The Hobbit: an Unexpected Journey (2012), Blade Runner 2049 (2017) and most currently for the last four years Thunderbirds are Go.  He offered some funny personal experiences in the industry and advice on how to break into the industry yourself saying; don't be afraid to do the "shit jobs" to start out.  The key is networking yourself and proving your worth, commitment and work ethic and you will get to where you want to be.
