I was given the chance to talk about Creativity, the VFX Industry and VFX Career path in Malaysia by the number one radio station in Malaysia, BFM, The Business Station. Among the topics covered were, my role in the industry, the perception of creative people being less smart and often thought of as a secondary vocation, the impact of creativity in our lives today, school system downplaying the importance of creativity in learning, lack of specialized talent and paths to how one can get into the industry even if they are underprivileged. I also spoke about Government grants that are available for the masses. Listen to the podcast which will be available in August, 2013.
