My name is Tiana and i recently graduated from The School Of Visual Arts in New York City. During My second year of taking the traditional animation course i wanted to transfer to Cal Arts but i didn't try because i was afraid (I don't know why).
Now that i have graduated i realized that i did not learn the tools need to get a job in what i wanted to do. I want to be in visual development and i do also animate.
I would like to work in a major animation studio but some schools in New York have curriculum's based for people that want to pursue independent animation but my dream is to work at a studio like Disney or Dream Works and More!!!!
Here's my question:
Should i apply for Cal Arts (i hope i get in)?
I feel that i will not only learn more in what i want to do but i will already be located in a place where i want to work. Even if i can only pay for a year i feel it would be worth it.
Should i just continue to try for apprenticeship programs and internships in hopes that i will maybe land a job at one of these studios?
I applied for Disney training program and never got an answer. I applied three times going on my forth this week,i applied for Dream Works, I'm also going to apply for Blue Sky and whole lot more...
Also take a look at my portfolio and life drawings and tell me what you think. Is it even strong enough. To be honest it feel weak to me. I look at tons of references for how a professional porfolio is supposed to look but i still feel like i i'm still lost.
Thank you so much for reading through this lol
