Hello guys!

I'm new here so I hope I posted everything according to the rules... I need help.

I completed undergraduate art course which was based mostly in conceptualization of space - making scenes, characters, basics in movie making, etc. even sculpturing and photography. My diploma project was an 2 min animation which I figured out mostly by myself without much input from my mentor. I have basically no support from my academy. I want to further my animation with MA Animation course but I have no idea what to put in my portfolio.

What kind of drawings? Still life? How many examples should I include?
Should I make as many short animations as I can until I apply, or is there another way I can present my ideas?

Should I present copies or originals? On CD, USB or printed/original paper drawings?

Any kind of information would be a godsend so thank you!
