The only thing is that I'm in Sacramento, and I am not really willing to go to the LA area for school for several reasons, but I am wondering if anyone has majored in animation in Northern/Central CA if you could just tell me about your experience; likes, dislikes, pros, cons, etc...
My goal is to eventually get a job at Pixar either as an animator, modeler, shader, lighter, or pretty much anything. I actually enjoy every aspect of the animation process. So what I am looking for in a school is as follows:
-teachers that are available after class
-good computers/programs/resources for animation
-classes on story telling
-classes dealing with drawing and painting
-classes for 2D animation (more focused on traditional animation)
-classes for 3D animation / I want in depth knowledge of:
basically I just want to be a jack of all trades when it comes to 3D, but I still want the knowledge base and experience with 2D animation.
Any good recommendations?
