I live in New Jersey and I will be going to school in this area. I'm considering the usual NYC schools like SVA and Parsons, although I know very little about those schools and what other options I have. Anyone have any suggestions/recommendations? Should I be looking beyond the NY/NJ area, even if I'd rather not stray too far from home?
FYI, I plan on becoming a concept artist of some sort, but I'm not sure exactly what I would want to do and what industry I'd like to work in. I'm interested in animation, although I don't think I'd want to be an animator but rather do concept art or storyboarding. Something along those lines anyway. I'm flexible and don't feel like I need to commit to a definite career plan yet, but I have a vague idea of what my interests are.
