Sometimes in life, all roads lead back to the same place. Brian Remesnitzky personally found this to be true. After several attempts to find his career path, he kept coming back to the same thing: his love for animation! He decided to focus and stabilize himself in this field, and today Brian is exactly where he’s meant to be. He is now the animator and owner of Brian Remes Animacion in Buenos Aires, Argentina!
Doing What He Loves
This talented gem studied multimedia art at the Escuela Da Vinci — a private vocational school in Argentina. Not realizing that it was possible to turn his childhood love of cartoons into an actual career, Brian shifted his educational focus to studying everything from architecture to engineering. That is, until one memorable day when he took a vocational test that revealed what he already knew all along: he is meant to be a professional animator!
Brian shares with us. And what else helps to sustain his love and passion? When asked about his support system, he enthusiastically replied,
He’s especially grateful for their support while he was simultaneously striving to earn his education and start his own company. His mother even found him employment at her place of work to help him make a living while completing his studies.
Although Brian would love to go back in time to start his animation career sooner, he believes that all the paths he has taken up to this point aren’t wasted efforts. In fact, he credits the diverse life experiences he gained along his unique career journey as the inspiration behind many of his current projects.
Brian reveals. Take his thesis, for example. It is a sci-fi video that centers on a scientist who lost his arm—content directly pulled from information he picked up in his electronic engineering courses. A lifelong learner, Brian is always applying new experiences to his work.
An Animator’s Lifestyle
On a typical day, Brian wakes up and heads straight to the office (although he’s been primarily working out of his home office lately due to the COVID-19 pandemic). He then spends the day on his computer, working on personal projects or searching for new freelance opportunities. His unique skills center on 2D, 3D, special effects, motion graphics, and slow-motion videos.
So far, one of the most challenging projects Brian has been privileged to work on involved helping a friend in need of animation to meet a very tight deadline. For three days straight, there was no sleeping and no eating… just animating! Staying organized throughout the storyboarding process was crucial. However, little by little, by sticking to his tried-and-true production formula, the project was successfully completed before the deadline!
Currently, Brian’s favorite cartoons are “Adventure Time” and “Steven Universe,” especially from a professional animator’s perspective. And just a few years ago, he was introduced to anime and fell in love with yet another aspect. Spending countless hours absorbed in this exciting genre helped to reaffirm his newfound career path.
Advice to Newcomers
When first starting out, Brian found himself struggling with low self-esteem—which is why he advises all animation newbies to avoid selling themselves short, choosing instead to appreciate the valuable work they create.
In the near future, Brian hopes to grow his company to include his friends and colleagues. He also hopes to work on projects for prestigious animation studios like Pixar and DreamWorks, and we know he can do it!
