Connor, 22 from Croydon, London, is currently a Prep Artist at Union Visual Effects.

Immediately after he finished the college course, he joined DNEG as a Compositing Apprentice for two years as part of the VFX Apprenticeship Scheme (linked with Uxbridge College for initial training) and is now a Mid-Prep Artist/Junior Compositor. Connor is being mentored by Ed Plant.

Connor said: "The Apprenticeship has opened up an avenue of opportunity for me to progress in my career, and the BAFTA and RTS Post-Apprenticeship Bursary provides the means to do so by affording me the right tools that can help develop my skills and techniques. I hope that this, and being mentored by an industry professional, will make me more employable for any studio I wish to work at in the future."
