This is my 1st post on this website Thus far I have stood in aw in most of the members here. I tend to hold my work up to a very high level of scrutiny.
At any rate I am a Full Sail alumni (Unfortunately) and seek to better my skills through a better school. I have a associates in computer animation and would like to receive a bachelors. SO that I can pierce the catch 22 of either 3 years work experience or a bachelors degree in animation.
I currently have applied to the Art Institute of Decatur Georgia. I will also be applying to Ringling and SCAD. I would much appreciate any and all opinions on this matter.
I do not want to have what I call the bait and switch rutein pulled again. You see when I attended my prior school I was told the reason they teach everything in 14 months is so they can get you into your feild asap. And they also said the reason they are so expensive is that they hold agreements with buisnesses in the area to so that they can have high placement rates. They did not follow through with what they preach. Yes they taught maya, photoshop, shake, after effects, and final cut, but my 1st JOB OFFER through career placement was as a web designer and as we all know this is a very vary bad insult to a animator or 3d modeler. (we know diffrent software, Not web design) .
After this I thought I would work on my demo and take it from there as mabye an intern or something small and climb the said ladder. this did not work due to the catch 22 I mentioned earlier so I am once again in search of a proper school.
SO ANYONE WHO HAS HAD GREAT TEACHING ANYWHERE. PLEASE DONT BE SHY FILL ME IN.
