Ever since I was a kid I wanted to do animation but, living in a single parent household I can't afford animation school and I don't know what to do. I really want to go to Sva, Ringling or Scad. I can go to a lesser known or state college that offers a animation course but Im worried about wasting my money or if I dont get pick up from studios such as cartoon network because I went the cheaper route. I could go to a online college like animation mentor. But I have a hard time personally learning online I rather learn with a teacher face to face. Does anyone have advice who is in college or out of college for animation about getting in. Sorry for my spelling .
