Based on all the information we collected via phone calls, focus groups and online surveys with our extensive list of industry contacts, we have formalised this information and released the first draft for public review.
As planned, we have broken the information into the three main Industries:
For each of the industries, we have broken them down into the most common, and essentially, the most important entry-level roles as recruited by both major studios and smaller independent studios. For each of the key roles, we have provided the following information :
- Prerequisites: Skills that are not directly reviewed as part of the Certification process, but rather a guide for skills that are expected. These skills form the basis of all Certified Skills and are very easy to determine indirectly when reviewing artist capabilities.
- Entry Level Skills & Capabilities: These skills form the basis for the core competencies that a Digital Artist will be required to demonstrate during their application process.
- Portfolio Projects: This includes recommendations and creative briefs that applicants should use as a guide for creating projects for their portfolios. The briefs relate very closely to that of the Certified Skills and are a clear way for applicants to demonstrate their knowledge through a creative project.
