I was wondering about what are well know schools that teach character animation in the states. I've had a passion for animation at a young age but really never got beyond stickfigures and stuff. I've started working on building up my drawing skills and right now i'm wondering what are some good character animations schools and what should i do to get in?
Right now I don't have a portfolio since I really only looked at drawing as a way to pass time during class and animation as a small hobby of mine.
