My name is Alex Branch and I’m a Builds Artist at Copernicus Studios Inc. This is my first studio job and I’m beyond excited to be working full time in the industry and to have my hard work broadcasted in the near future.
Initially, I intended to move to Toronto, but decided to move to Nova Scotia from New Brunswick, as there was a lot of growth in the animation industry that presented a lot of opportunity for both my girlfriend and myself. So after completing a design/coding job for the Department of National Defense I left for Halifax in order to start a new life.
Halifax has very much become my home and seemed to welcome me with open arms filled with creative opportunities. Unfortunately, now that I have a foot in Halifax’s creative industry, the incoming threat to the tax credit could cause both my girlfriend and myself to uproot and move once again, leaving the city I wanted to call home.
