    I have a tough decision, weighing the pro's and con's . . .

    An atelier school in CA, or maybe applying to ringling? I would hit up cal arts, but that costs alot.

    I liked what ringling had to say on their website. Cal Arts seems more like hollywoodish out for entertainment, and ringling seemed more to emphasize development. Not to say that Cal Arts isn't good, it is one of the best, but for some reason ringling seems like a better fit. And ringling is alot cheaper in tuition.

    My goals are to get into computer animation, yet I hear learning 2D first, then going into 3D is best, so I'm going to develop my illustration / painting first

    Ringling:

    Pro's

    One of the best education for computer animation / illustration.

    You definitely will get a job after finishing

    Learn about the various industries (animation, art etc)

    Warm weather.

    Con's

    Cost, far away from home, access to decent surf spots is far



    Atelier:

    Pro's
    Close to home. Cheaper in cost. Learn from great artists. Close to excellent surf

    Cons: you don't get experience that Ringling will give . . .

    generalizing

    Definite meaning you know what you're doing, put alot of time and effort, making talent.

    Well they have this 3D animation conference, it's really important in animation biz. And there was this category with 10 awards, really difficult to win, and ringling grads got 4 slots.

    Plus it's pretty well regarded among industry, like getting a degree from Ivy League schools.

    What I ment was it's easier getting a job with a degree from ringling (and if you know your steez) than say if you went to . . . the art institute chains.

    Thanks for helping me clear that one up.

    Oh wait, maybe I should ask God to help me . . . :p
