They held a sort of free town hall for prospective AM students (me!) to get used to the idea of web conferencing and collaborative working. I have to say I was hooked. The connection I had was really fast, webcam and demo videos loaded up just fine.
Of course now I’m thinking about just how much of a pay cut I’m going to absorb taking a jr. position at an animation company, but then is it more or less than taking a course like this one for $17,000 for 18 months?
In Toronto I could sign up for a local school with a similar curriculum, but I really like the ability to do it all distance-learning, in my spare time, from my desk in Oshawa. However, I did notice they’re holding an open house this week. Hmmm…
So lots to think about, I’m starting up production on The Bottomfeeders again, but the big picture is how do I get to work in animation with other people?!? This animating from home can get pretty tiring very quickly.
