Firstly, excuse me for being a newbie ^^; but I really needed to ask this question, and please let me know if someone has recently already answered this question somewhere (although I did look).
Basically I went to look at a university today, at one of their open days here in England. I spoke to the lecturers of the animation courses about what was involved in the course etc.
They told me they mainly do 3D, and everything they do, is to with 3D animation.
I really want to go into the 2D animation industry, and it's becoming more and more apparent, from the universities I've looked at, that the courses are specializing in 3D animation and obviously using 2D drawings etc. for the basics (the university I looked at today, did this).
They also seem to be aiming 3D animation at the games industry mainly, because apparently animators are in real need there.
I know 3D animation is what most people would say is "the way forward" because that is where the animation industry is heading, and most likely where the most money is, but is it wrong of me to just want to do 2D animation only?
And also, should I find a university that allows me to do mostly 2D (obviously with some 3D for the basics), or am I going down the path of wanting to specialize in 2D, and then finding after university that the animation industry has no need for 2D specific artists anymore?
I really appreciate all opinions, please be understanding that I've never posted here before, and joined to ask questions about where i should be heading :) .
