Just a general question.
I studied visual arts when I was young, fresh out of high school. Didn't even consider animation as a goal.
But 20 years later when I was rehabbed, and got to study computer graphics, it became a possibility.
While training, computer animation was really limited. Animated gifs were about it. But then Flash happenned. Seemed like it called to me.
The idea that I could make my own films was heady stuff. In fact I bought Flash, before the vocational school had even heard of it.
I'd done flip books when I was in junior high, they were fun, but a lot of work for something I could only show my friends. Now I can share with the world. How cool is that?
That's how I got into it. How about you?
