well youre not that much older than me, Im 34, hell, Im just getting into it now unfortunately. Oh man I would have loved that if I had the opportunity... Thats pretty bad though, did you smack em around a bit and tell em to get off your lawn? :lolMmm. Maybe, Im old school I admired all the iconic artists, I'm 41 now and not in the loop.
My local university teaches it as a degree course, I see all the young kids hanging out in the local bar, I say to them who's your favourite effects guy? They're like, "...dunno?" And I say why do you wanna do sfx, who inspired you? "...dunno" Name a famous fx artist? "...dunno?" I'm appalled! They should be able to rhyme them all off one after another no problem. It's really sad, I'd have loved the opportunity they have when I was 20.
