Dominic Rayner at Immersive VR Education

Dominic Rayner
Many congratulations to Animation Apprentice graduate Dominic Rayner who is working as Senior Animator at Immersive VR Education.

Immersive VR Education is a virtual and augmented reality company working in the field of training and education, based in Waterford City, Ireland.

Dominic is based in the UK, working remotely from England, where he has built a complete home office from where he is able to work for global clients.

Dominic's career is an example of the importance of flexible working in the post-Corona economy. The animation industry continues to thrive, but animators must be flexible and be prepared to work from home, managing their own tech support and working with their own equipment.

Dominic Rayner took out 30 week course at Animation Apprentice, and soon found work as an animator with The Operator's Creative, a creative agency based in London near Old Street.

Prior to that, Dominic worked as a character animator at Lipsync Post, on a feature film combining animated creatures with live action footage.

Advice for Animation Graduates
Dominic offers some important advice for recent graduates looking for work in the industry in the current post-Covid job market:
  • Put a paragraph at the top of your CV specifically stating your remote work office facilities at home, including what graphics card you have, software access, internet upload/download speeds, home office phone number etc. 
  • Be on LinkedIn. Recruiters are always hovering on profiles on LinkedIn; they need quick links to your demo reel and CV. That way they can count on you, and it becomes easier to sell you in the current circumstances. 
  • Be confident. A number of people are posting for work on LinkedIn, searching for work, and looking a bit desperate. The more confident you seem, the better.
