Fun Details about Hans:
Nossi College of Art: What was your first creative job?
Hans Chilberg: I started out like most people – an intern/production assistant. I also worked as a wedding videographer for family and freelanced along the way.
Nossi: Is there something you wish you’d known as you started out in the creative industry?
HC: Trust people who tell you that your health is the most or one of the most important things. Sleep enough. Drink enough real water. Think long game, marathon, pace yourself, big picture career.
Nossi: Who inspires you?
HC: People. People who can listen. People who can fight and accept in a healthy balance. People who trust yet who also doubt, and can think with an open mind.
Nossi: What is the best way to get your foot in the door with a company you want to work for?
HC: You need to show up in person, and leave a resume. Even if for “Six months down the road.” Keep following up. When you are starting, you will work for cheap or free, but that is not something you should do forever.
Nossi: What is a phone app you cannot live without?
HC: My Podcast App
Nossi: Favorite social media platform(s)?
HC: Instagram and LBRY
Nossi: How often do you create something new?
Nossi: What was your first non-creative job?
HC: Renovations and yard work. I would mow lawns and bust out bathroom tile or walls for various renovations.
Nossi: What were you like in high school?
HC: I enjoyed the athletic and artist crowd. I liked to laugh in class, even though I would get into trouble sometimes. I was usually just trying to add some entertainment to class. Things on my mind included: music, poetry, film, sports, friends, family, and my dogs.
Nossi: Superman or Batman?
