When you love what you do, it’s no chore to put in extra hours on the side to create something special of your own. Your own creative project.

It can help you experiment and evolve… and it can help you get known.

And when it’s the likes of Steven Spielberg who has noticed you, you’re doing something right.

The very animated James Curran, better known for his colourful looping GIFs as Slim Jim Studios, takes us through his freelance journey and the huge role his many substantial side projects have played in getting him noticed and getting him work.

We also chat about knowing your value, having an agent, community, speaking, finance and not giving up - it takes time.
