Who are you :

Hi, I am Vivianne Wang. I draw on my Ipad/computer for fun. Sometimes I draw with real pencils on real paper. (Haven`t touch real canvas and oil painting for years after college...) I also do video editing and graphic design as secondary hobbies if it doesn`t demand too much of my free time.

Your current job :

My main field is Computer Animation. Currently, I work as 3D Lighting and Compositing Artist on an animated feature film.

Toronto

What does your office space look like?

The office I am currently working at used to be a big brewery back in 1880's. It has a charming historical look on the outside but the interior is very modernized in style. It`s generally very spacious with good lighting. It`s also dog-friendly so I get the luxury of working with dogs almost every day!

What kind of music do you listen when you are working?

I like house music mostly but only at the beginning when I am working. After a while, I would play electronica in a loop for better concentration. I would also listen to music that corresponds to the emotion the scene should have. In that way, I could tune myself into the work and work smoother.


Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work?

I think my brain likes to pre-plan the day before bedtime (even when I don`t want to). And I would review the priority of tasks in the morning before heading to work so I could start off the moment I sit in the chair.


What tips would you give to improve productivity?

Set priorities and take breaks, a lot of small breaks, and walk as much as possible.


You're better than your colleagues to :

To be a vegetarian and taking selfies ( I believe so).


What is the best advice anyone has given you?

There`s always someone likes you and someone dislikes you, no matter who you are.


What is your best tip for saving time?

Sleep more and sleep early. ( Sill WIP on the second part.)


What is your routine start and end of the day?

Morning - Washroom routine, drink two cups of water, staring at the horizon line, dress up and get out.

Night - Staring at the horizon line, read, prepare what to wear the second day, say goodnight, pre-plan the day with eyes closed.


Aside from your computer and your phone, what gadget can you not you go without?

My makeup bag, as equally important as my phone, seriously.
