I would like to ask an animator one question for a school project.
Don't you start as well!

My god.... when the raw creative powers of artists goes dangerously unchecked by an open ended statement...
Don't burn the carpet, fellas.

Maybe it's never coming. Maybe it was solely a statement of desire.
I have always wanted to visit Europe.
Am I allowed to ask a question too?
I promise I'll actually ask
Hehe. I love this threat.... ;)
What classes did you take in High School?
We don't have your school system in Germany but my classes were Arts, German, English, Italian and Maths... ;)
Glad everyone is having such a good time, but come on folks...anyone that has been here for anytime, knows the students descend every year with a list of the same questions for professional animators. It's an assignment. I for one wish they would use the search function and pull up the previous answers over the years.
But I have enjoyed watching this thread. Hope I am not being a killjoy.

This wasn't an assignment. I'm looking at 3D animation as a carrer, and i am signing up for my senior classes right now, i was just wondering if there were any specific classes that you all took that were helpful.
More important than high school classes is to work in 3D programs every day. Maybe complete a different online tutorial each day.
How do you keep a professional animator in suspense?
Take the battery out of his pencil sharpener - tell him you'll give it back, but don't tell him when
kkhardima, I'll answer your question in.... about... 5 days.
In the meantime, how about a better question. APE! Can you tell us about your experience with Animation Mentor so far? I've been thinking about enrolling in the near future, but as you are aware it is pretty spendy. Granted, the Mentors are all very talented... but how it is working out? Are there any communication barriers when taking these classes online? Any other issues?
Ha-HAW! Mine! Has a crank!!!
By repeating posts? ;)
And to answer the one legitmate quesion so far:
I took alot of math, science and computer programming (it was basic and Dos back then). I also took art and photo (those were my favorite classes). I didn't know I wanted to be an animator. Take drawing, especially life drawing, if they've got it. It'll help even if you want to do 3D stuff.
Producing solidily ok animation since 2001.
Now with more doodling!
Hello kkhardima, and welcome to the AWN Forums. What is your question?
...we must all face a choice, between what is right... and what is easy."
You've got us on the edge of our seats. What's the quesiton?
just ask!! :D
"check it out, you know it makes sense!" http://miaumau.blogspot.com/
The suspense is killing me!
I must know the question TELL ME!
FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT'S HOLY, WHAT'S THE QUESTION!?
And please don't let it be, "Is your refrigerator running?"
I'm sorry, but I cannot allow this question to be asked.
It is "12".
To answer the question, I personally don't believe in Santa Claus, but the absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence. In other words, there are known unknowns and unknown knowns and even unknown unknowns. This is the case of a known unknown unknown known gnome.
I wanted to know if there are any cartoon animators that has gone to school for their profession and, in choosing your career do you feel that it was the best career for you and Why.
Kinda like peeking at your Christmas presents, huh fellas?
I have a question.
Why does it take someone five days to ask a question?
I'll get back to you on that...
im guessing they either:
A. found their information elsewhere
B. Forgot about/lost the link to this site

Hi kkhardima, yes, I went to and graduated from a 4 year art school and majored in Animation/Illustration. Currently I am also taking animation classes at AnimationMentor.com.
Animation is the only thing I've ever wanted to do since I knew I had to actually grow up and get a job. So, yes, this is the best career for me.
I thought that the answer was 42... did you want to know the meaning of it all?
Come on harvey, Santa's existance has been documented in several films so let's just leave him out of this.
Now back to the Question. It helps if you submit one.
Dude, don't push your religious beliefs on me. I'm happy with my current religion, Swampthingism.
I'm with you harvey! In my country, we don't have Santa (traditionally speaking) it's baby Jesus that brings the presents... wich begs the question? How is a newborn baby able to bring presents for everyone?
I haven't gotten one goddamned present from a goddamned newborn baby, which probably means I'm not practicing the right goddamned religion. I only get presents from swamp monsters: not as cute, but less stinky.
I was given a newborn baby by Santa once, I really wanted a train set, I think he'd be on the sherry.
A small bucket of water and a french polish.
I bet the question is:
"How do you keep an animator in suspense?"
I would now like to ask kkhardima a question.
