lmfao exactly what I was wondering.


Also, 3D is gay, 4D is where it's at. Depending on when you see the film, it changes! You know, when you see it at night, all scenes play at night.

Stuff like that.

that could actually be possible in flash with some actionscript thing that changes the sky etc depending on what time your computer clock is set at etc etc advanced shit

I want to be an animator,
but I have to get used to using things other then computer drawings
just to get variety,
Im working on flash/ have been for 2 years now, this year ive made the most progress.
However web developement is my fall back... but eh im not sure how things are going to turn out.
My school doesnt offer an animation class but its still out there.

Wade is not gay, read his profile! It's sad that you would use sexual orientation as a joke, shows that you have no real sense of humor.

Yes, absolutely. An ideal job for me would be working at Pixar, or at one of my favorite video game companies. I'm not saying this would be easy at all, I would need to work a LOT to achieve this, now is the time to start, even if only a little bit. Brad Bird, who is one of my favorite directors, made his first animation when he was 11 years old. "On a tour of the Walt Disney Studios at age 11, he announced that someday he would be part of its animation team, and soon thereafter, began work on his own 15-minute animated short. Within two years, he had completed his animation, which impressed the cartoon company. By age 14, barely in high school, Bird was mentored by the animator Milt Kahl, one of Disney’s legendary Nine Old Men. After graduating from Corvallis High School in Corvallis, Oregon in 1975, Bird took a three year break. He was then awarded a scholarship by Disney to attend California Institute of the Arts, where he met and befriended another future animator, Pixar co-founder and director John Lasseter." That's pretty impressive.

i'm not so concerned about money, as long as i have enough to live. and there's not always a lot of money in animation (even 3d), but if you're doing what you love..

animation has been a huge interest of mine over the past couple of years. ive always been a mediocre animator, but in the last month or so my skills have increased tenfold, cause i started practicing art more. drawing was always my flaw, especially backgrounds.

my main strength is writing, ive written numerous scripts. a job in animation is more of a dream than a reality to me. im joining the army for 4 years, then i want to go to university, most probably to study creative writing or animation. im hoping the army will give me the financial security to move out and go to university, and maybe make my dream come true

and i agree on the money part. i could get a job working for a stock broker or for some company, be earning 3 digits a year but i wouldnt be happy.
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
