Hi, I'm new on this board so please bear with me. ^^;
I am having a wonderfully terrible time trying to decide which school of animation would be the one for me. I have been accepted to both Sheridan College and Concordia University and I cannot for the life of me decide on which school I would rather go to.
I have heard Sheridan's program is a tough one to get accepted to - I was thrilled to learn I was accepted! I know I would like going to Sheridan college and I know the program is great.
My dilemma is that I am very attracted to Montreal. I also love Canadian animation and I have heard that Montreal is where it's at for working in Canadian animation. But I do not know a whole lot about Concordia's animation program. I don't know if it is as good of a program as Sheridan's. I am worried that I will not be able to reach my artistic potential if I go to a program that is not as good. Naturally, I wish to be the best artist I can be. Or am I over-stressing?
Another thing that concerns me is this: A lot of my friends tell me that I will not be able to expand my creative horizons in animation: they say i'll be unhappy because I will not be able to have any creative input into what I am doing. I don't believe that, but I also really want to explore my creativity and be a unique artist.
I know that Sheridan has co-op in third year i believe (?) Would it be possible to go to Montreal for co-op?
If anyone can give me any insights, experiences, or just knowledge on the programs and atmospheres of either school, it would be wonderful if you could share!
