i've been a Cartoonist, Illustrator, Painter and Writer for 12 years now. I live in india and when i first got out of college with a 5 year course and great portfolioin Illustration and Graphics, the Animation Industry in India did not exist.
I'm doing well as a painter here, but I keep regretting not having pursued animation back then. Also, I'd like to try and eventually migrate to either USA or Canada.
I'm wondering if I should just go ahead and learn 2D animation and put a Flash showreel together and try getting a job or go back to art school.
I've looked at several and am considering Academy of Art University in San Francisco and Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah Georgia.
Please comment on these schools.
Also, what are my chances of landing a job in the US or Canada as a Flash Animator with a good showreel but without an American degree?
Do write in. Thanks!
