Mike Jensen Davis Section Blue Career Plan Entertainment Industry As technology plays an increasing role in the entertainment industry the need for people with the skills to create unbelievable special effects and harness the power of the computer becomes greater.

From special effects created by computer generated imaging that allow a movie producer to bring dinosaurs back to life to the huge databases needed to create 3D sports events allowing fans to watch a game from any angle.

Their opinions and views on life are more unconventional and accepting of change which better fits my personality.One of the major downsides is how incredibly hard it is to enter this industry. There are literally millions of people out there competing to show how creative they are or aren¡¯t. Like many industries its not what you know but who you know. This concept is especially true for entertainment and for someone to get a chance to prove their worthiness to work on a multimillion dollar entertainment projects they will need to do a lot of leg-work and it will most likely take a long time if ever for them to make any ¡°real¡± money.Entry Level Jobs: Computer Artist This is an entry level position which requires a good amount of technical experience using applications that either allow the transfer of traditional art to digital format or creating computer graphic from scratch.

All the new gadgets and hardware that business and society become increasingly reliant on would be useless if it did not have the instructions to follow which are found in software applications. My specific interest in this industry has to do with entertainment software. More commonly known as video games, entertainment software comprises the largest and broadest segment of computer software sales in the United States. With many different types of games from first person shooters and sports games to role-playing and strategy games the market is well covered.
