I would like to seek some advise on my career/ education path. I have been accepted to CalArts- character animation BFA1, Fall 2005. Unfornately, I now face financial difficulties and could only afford to study there for 1 year.
1) I would like to know what gain I would have if i go only for 1 year. (I have already got a bachelor of Fine Arts degree in my country. So, I am afraid that I will be learning the same stuff in my first year at CalArts with all those basic stuff, even if exemptions exists.) Would i have a better chance to be hired as an animator if i have that 1 year of education at CalArts? or would i be not much different from what i am now?
2) If i don't go, what would i have lost?
i guess that will be all. I need to make the decision promptly. So, if you can, please reply asap please.
thanks so much.
