I'm starting to look into animation as a new career. I'm in my mid 20's with a bachelor's degree in journalism. I've been looking at different schools and programs for a few days now, and I was wondering if anyone could offer a little guidance.
I was going to post this as a "how much education" do I need message, but I realized that's kind of like putting the cart in front of the horse.
Instead, I'll just say that what I'm looking to do is along the lines of character animation, not so much special effects or computer graphics.
My question is, what kind of program should I be looking at? Does anyone have any recommendations for someone living in the Mid-Atlantic? (specifically the Art Institutes of Philadelphia or York, PA)
Thanks for your help.
