Question Need Contacts

How can you get contacts in the animation industry without going to art school? I feel like there's enough information on the internet and the best animators are the ones who practice on their own. College is extremely expensive just to make friends.

Post of forums. Go to Siggraph, CTN, and GDC. Go to local networking events (if there aren't any in your area, you're gonna want to move eventually). Ask around to see if there are any friends of friends in the industry you might be able to get in touch with. Hang out in bars near animation studios. Take a few online classes.
