Schools of Animation
To start off with a career in animation, it is best to find the most suitable kind of Universities, Colleges or Institutes of Higher Learning that offers corses related to the animation industry.
Generally, the animation industry is presently tapping the advances of technology to produce films at the high-end of technology and make the animated feature even more realistic and life-like. Hence in my opinion there is thus a high demand for computer 3D animators now.
However that does not undermine the importance of conventional Classical animators as the concept of 3D animation is also borne from the concept of Classical animation. In fact, a good artist or Classical animator can become a good 3D animator, but a person who is well-versed in the 3D animation programmes would not be a good animator as he may not necessarily understand the roots of animation.
Besides the computer and Classical animators, there is also opportunities for Technical Directors which presume would be a job more suitable for those who are well-versed in the programme.
Well, withou further ado, let's move on and see the list of preferred institutions offering the courses for these jobs.
