    No, it's not necessary. A minority of companies will care, but the vast majority won't. Most likely, whether you have a degree or not will only matter if you ever apply for a job outside the country.

    You seem to have a pretty good grasp on them. It definitely has some serious problems, but they do have some great teachers. Do be warned though that it works out to be substantially more expensive...

    I just graduated from CCA's animation program a few months ago, and I know a fair number of AAU graduates. My thoughts:

    1. CCA's tuition is closer to forty thousand dollars than fifty, and is far...

    SMU Guildhall is a great program, but that's graduate level. Texas A&M department of visualization is also a great program, but probably a bit more technically oriented than you're looking for....

    There are some good, relatively cheap animation programs out there, none of which are art institutes. Check out the various online programs (AnimationMentor, iAnimate, TADAnimation), San Jose State...

    What exactly do you want to do with art and science? Both are extremely demanding fields; as a general rule, you're not gonna be able to study both and be able to work at a professional level at...

    Another CCA student here (in fact, I believe mbarq is about twenty feet away from me at the moment). Just in terms of quality of faculty, I think CCA has a better illustration program. AAU's faculty...

    I think at this point in time, your best option is to go to a local community college where you can take some intro art classes along with GED preparation classes.

    Where are you working that starting pay is forty dollars an hour? That's a heck of a lot more than any of the other numbers I've heard for entry-level animators (my impression is that even...

    Planescape, and other RPGs of the era, didn't try to be cinematic. Well written text is far more immersive than poorly lip-synced dialogue.

    None of those have stories as sophisticated as, say, Planescape: Torment (1999). The quality of story and the quality of technology are entirely independent of one another.

    It's looking really good. The two that seem weakest to me are the ink painting of the skulls (it feels too washed out) and the female life drawing (it's ok, but it's not on the same level as the male...

    As a general rule of thumb, you can take on debt equal to your expected first year salary without serious financial difficulty. As and animator, that'd be somewhere around 40k. Now, since this is...

    Oh, true. I was assuming the job was within the same country. If the comapany is going to have to wrangle with immigration, that's a pretty big disincentive.

    It's certainly helpful to be near a lot of potential employers, but not essential. Personally, the internship I got last summer I wouldn't even have heard about if I lived outside of the Bay Area. I...

    Not really. Most of the Academy's best teachers teach only on campus, not online. It's also really, really expensive for an online program.

    San Jose State University is probably the best animation program at any public university in the country. Chico State also has a pretty good program.

    Yeah, if you think every major concept artist comes from Art Center (I assume that's the school you're referring to), you're not paying that much attention.

    That being said, some schools certainly...
