I am a 24 year old female from New York looking to switch from my current career field (creative side of advertising) to 3D Computer Animation. There are a couple of reasons why I am thinking about making the switch -- more job stability,.. 3D Animation has a better industry outlook for the future, higher pay, etc. (If I'm wrong about any of this, feel free to inform me!). I am also pretty sure I'd really like being in Computer Animation, from what I've read and heard about it so far.
I got a B.A. in Communication Studies from the University of Michigan in 2001. I am currently looking into taking possibly a one year course in 3D Computer Animation at the New York Film Academy, which starts in September. Does anyone have any thoughts on that school? Is there a better school in New York to learn 3D Computer Animation at?
Basically... I'm just looking for ANY and ALL advice/suggestions you all may have for me regarding my attempt to get started in 3D Computer Animation!
ANY help at all will be greatly appreciated!!!! Thanks so much!!!
