Resources to getting started in 3D Graphics/VFX

I have had a few people ask me how they can get into VFX or 3d graphics. I have compiled some resources to help guide people along their journey….

This first link is to a uk website designed to help young people know what skills they need coming out of school to be able to go into the computer graphics industry. It does a really good job of describing a lot of the different areas of CG and what you might be most suited for. The pdf linked to is a great breakdown of all of these areas.
