Probably really late to the party but as I’m researching interesting characters for our upcoming project, I wanted to write about why Effie Trinket is my favourite Hunger Games character and how she is a personification of the broken capitol society, slaves of their own system. pic.twitter.com/shRMONBBAG
Effie has by far one of the most interesting character arcs throughout all the movies (haven’t read the books, sorry) and I love how through her behaviour and breaking point, the story of the capitol society becomes really apparent. She shows that they are all victims too.
Effie has a way of really really pushing herself and her surroundings to play along with the rules of propaganda and distraction - this is how she has learned to survive in the capitol machine her entire life. The masquerade is literally her job. She breathes this.
I know people always say to tailor CVs towards roles and companies, and I have done that in some special cases where I've left out some side-projects or quirky work that would be beneficial to be mentioned for a different role.
Overall I made my CV according to what *I* wanted.
For example: I'm a really decent concept artist. But I categorically leave it out of my CV because I don't want to be hired for that and I have had companies push me into art or even ask me if I'm really an artist who tries to be a game designer (rude much?).
Don’t be afraid to turn down places that make you do insane amounts of labour to even get an interview, e.g. huge design tests. I turned down places like that and engaged with some that were borderline about it but excessive design tests were always daunting.
Okay, let's talk a little bit about developing professional contacts, the work that is involved in that and maintaining those...
I bet if you are in any creative, emerging, technology, whatever industry, you've been told that networking and contacts is everything.
That is entirely true. Knowing people, pouring energy in knowing people and fostering your own field is invaluable, for you and them.
