Career plan – future

Early future

At first, I need successfully finish my university BCS. course (Computer Animation & Visual Effects). Before that, I want to go somewhere in Asia to my placement. Somewhere where all the technologies are coming from. Japan? China? South Korea? Dubai? I still don’t know. But I have enough time to decide. My ambitions and aims are high so I need to get a wide spectrum of experience from different corners of the world.

Late future

This is an idea which I am thinking about the most. I am quite sure that I don’t want to work for the film industry. I am still deciding between architecture, medicine, game or television industry. I think that the film industry has enough good animators and there is a big potential in other segments. I want to use my math and perfectionist skills. I want to do something which will be not just for one use. I would like to live and work somewhere close to the Czech Republic, close to my family. I don’t think that I will completely move to Czechia. Probably I will move to Germany or Austria because the quality of life is there much better.
