    xsi base: how did you get started in the cg industry and why?

    ben PROCTER: i became interested in 3d right after college when got a job helping to art direct a cd-rom computer game. i was really fascinated watching the 3d artists do their work (especially my old buddy jin song, who was at pdi last time i checked), and i quickly began to learn about cg lighting, texture painting, etc.. at that point pixar was really hitting its stride with movies like “a bug’s life”, and i pictured myself becoming a lighter at a large animation or vfx studio. as it turned out, though, my first proper cg job was for a tiny (now defunct) la-based matte painting company called digital firepower and involved a lot of modeling, which i had to sort of learn on the job.
