interesting thread

yea, i have been looking into this myself, i currently work in the industry and was looking into this as a part time endeavour (4-6 yrs - 20 hrs per week).

There wont be a specific 3d animation course in 3d, however as someone said before you can move to either side of the industry.

Someone said computer science (the process of the technology - scripting, plugins, software, alt software, new software and applications (like AR technology), or simply software and hardware integration (better 3d integration into web browser platforms).

I also however, looked at the other side, the artistic and creative elements.

I am in talks with 5 unis in the UK about some of these, however this is as far as i have got (thesis proposal writing!!!).


I have also been chatting with a couple of industry schools as an additional educational portal. (escape studios, and VFS) - these would be the quickest route to serious industry, these guys have good long standing relationships with the big studio players.

Personally i am at a bit of a loss! - I am UK based and currently work in the north at a good / large advertising and marketing agency (they have offered to fund either). I do like living up North and if poss dont really fancy london. So do i do the PHD and go the research - technical route or do the industry stuff and try and sell the post pro services into the company up here (i would need to create the studio here and build the team up here)?????

we all need to advance and education can often be that route to progression, so what do you guys think?

hope the info helped!
