I am not sure if this is the correct forum section, but I wanted some straightforward, unprejudice advice.
I have had the goal of working in the Japanese animation industry for some time now(what most people term as "Anime"), but the problem is of course my lack of animation and japanese-language education. I know only know of a few remaining 2D animation programs here in the US, and the one in the US that appeals me most is the one at BYU, but at my intelligence-level I feel that I will need to finish a lot of basic college courses here in Texas before they would consider me eligible.
The problem is Animation is practically non-existent here in Texas and so I feel even more disheartened by what some people think is an inpractical goal. It's just I feel like I would accomplish a lot more working at Studio Ghibli(yes I said Studio Ghibli) than I would waiting for American studios to return to 2D, and the random occurences like Princess and the Frog isn't gonna give me the inspiration to stay here in the US since 3D has took control over the US industry for too long in my opinion.
Anyway does anyone have advice on how to achieve my goal?
Also if I didn't explain what I need advice on.
1st. I want to take animation courses and japanese courses here in the US.
2nd. I want to work at Studio Ghibli and help make some of the best animated films ever made.
