Like so many other people in my field there doesn’t seem to be one term that describes exactly what we do, so when people ask “What do you do?” I usually just reply with “I’m a digital dude?”. It’s just easier than saying…
I’m a Digital Designer & Developer who jumps at the chance to show off his After Effects and Cinema 4D skills for animation, VFX, and post production jobs and also completing experimental projects such as projection mapping and motion controlled timelapse projections, VR and AR development among many others…. Oh and I have also won multiple photography awards and competitions which have had me jetting all over the world.
So Digital Dude just seems easier. You know?
I’m also a Freelance photographer but I keep that stuff over here: www.chrisstaring.com
