just to add some contrast i think animations always something im gonna do as a hobby. i love it but i have other pursuits too, so it'll be my second life
i am dead

<+wwchicken> once i walked into the kitchen and there was a sound
<+wwchicken> but i could only hear it when i stood on one spot in the kitchen
<+wwchicken> then i turned off the light
<+wwchicken> and it was gone
<+wwchicken> then i turned the light back on and there it was again
<+wwchicken> so i thought, its an invisible alien
<+wwchicken> but hes scared of the dark

Man, being an animator has always been a dream of mine, and I'm trying to pursue it. But I was wondering, what are some good classes to take at school?
Like, im a sophmore and this year I'm taking graphic deisgn, and last year I took 2D/3D art. So, just wondering what I should take.
Also, I can take animating but only on my senior year.

my high school offered me nothing in terms of animation, i'd be surprised if yours did
just do your best to build a strong art and animation portfolio on your own, and get resources online and through books

My school does, "infotech" 10/11/12. 20% Flash, 15% Graphic design, 15% Python (script), 10% Java, 30% 3D Game design, 10% web design.

The % are slightly different for 11 then 12. 10 is mostly an intro to these things.

Also, you can work on just about any project you want as a personal assignment for extra marks.

Yeah, no. I don't think I have the patience to put the work in to being a professional artist. I've always liked making games though, and art/animation is a vital part of any non-shitty game.

I can't even be bothered to animate something when I'm not forced to (i.e. when it's not my job) so animating something when I'm forced to would sure kill the fun.

i do love animating, but i think it has to be your ultimate dream and passion for you to persevere and make it. you have to also be a certain calibre of artist (which i am not)

what job are you all aiming for? like an actual animator, or a director of your own series?
