How to travel to Hollywood

However, due to the lack of professional knowledge, the hard working day begins.
In 2017 I left New York and moved to Los Angeles. I started living here with my job. I quit my job at Corona and started learning motion graphic design from video tutorials. In addition, by reading various books and articles, I started to learn the work of new software needed for film graphics, such as After Effects, Cinema Ford, Houdini and Nuke. As unbelievable as it sounds, I was spending 15-18 hours a day on it. I didn’t give up though.
It was my routine from March to December 2020. Then I prepared my show reel from January to May 2021. And in August I started sending applications to various organizations as a motion graphics designer. I used to send my showreel or portfolio to 30-40 production companies every day. For the first few months, no production company responded. After three months, Wild Card Creative contacted me and selected me for the job. I have been working in this company since November 2021.
