I am a junior in high school and I've always wondered if I have what it takes to be a 3D animator. I have the passion for film (especially 3D films, of course) to the point where I will cry when I see something gorgeous in the previews at a movie theater. My absolute perfect profession would be to work as a 3D Animator at Disney or Pixar or Dreamworks.
However, the field is so foreign to me and I am not sure how successful I would be if I pursued it. For example, art? Math? I'm decent at traditional art, and I think with a little practice/classes I could definately draw/paint well. My biggest hurdle is that my sister is fantastic at traditional art and she is studying it currently - I feel inferior to her regarding art... And for the math part: does 3D animation use it? Like computer programming does? I'm in honors and AP classes at my school, but math is not my best or favorite subject.
So I guess I am simply asking what it takes and if it is in my realm of possibility to pursue it. What do I study in college? What could I be doing now?
Thanks in advance.
