Since I was a kid I've always been interested in "moving images". Doing absurd short animations. Using Paint and (Windows) Movie Maker or with my digital camera doing stop-motion or live action movies with my neighbors. Also, I never stop doodling and producing imagery. Growing in a world where digital tools and equipment were starting to become very accessible was very important for me, because they allowed kids to be creative. This curiosity grew into a passion.
Sometimes I feel I can not even advise myself..but if had to advise someone I would say: Stop procrastinating. If you want it, just do it! Stop being afraid of failing and making up lame excuses.
Most importantly, have fun doing it. When we start working in the field professionally sometimes it's hard to keep the enthusiasm... Take your time to experiment and PLAY!
