how do i start?

Postby euphemisms » Fri Dec 19, 2014 10:17 pm

hello, i am an aspiring animator/filmmaker and i wanted some advice on how to get started. i am a junior in high school with some minimal drawing skills (i'm trying to get better at drawing objects then moving onto illustrating ideas i have) and lots of experience in creative writing and screenwriting. based on that, how should i approach the animation or film industry and how do i prep myself for applying for colleges/internships/jobs/whatevers?

It's good that you're working on your drawing skills. For any artistic role in animation, having a solid foundation in drawing from life is somewhere between very useful and utterly essential. I'd strongly suggest checking out artist-focused sites like ConceptArt.Org or CGTalk; you'll find a lot of good information on how to further your education there.

Many people doesn't do this. But you are doing it and you are going to be a great inspiration for many as you are not bounded by any. I am asking my students to do the same to fulfill their goals.
