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. Like many of you, I got my start around the time of the DSLR revolution, learning filmmaking from the likes of Freddie Wong and Corridor Digital. Being able to make a living doing what I love is something I honestly thought I would never attain and I wanted to return to the forums to give back to the filmmaking community that helped me get my start!
“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:
- “Gear doesn’t matter!”
- “The only way to get good is by DOING!”
- “It’s all been done before.”
- “School is a waste of time and money.”
And many more.
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)
