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.

yep i'm trying to be an animator. i love doing 2D but I'm trying to get into 3D since that seems to be a key point in today's market. Once I get into college (my sophomore year) i'm going to apply for an internship there to see if I can learn about their workflow and environment and everything. Maybe if I'm lucky (and talented enough) they'll let me come back full time. haha

in my dreams.

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.

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.

Post by: zomfgbie on November 2, 2007 03:29 PM
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.
