I am considering going to school to become an animator, but would like to have an idea of an animator's typical work hours per week. Is it a 40 hour work week? Do animator's get weekends off? I am considering the animation work field but I do not want the work to control my life. Also, would an animator who worked at Pixar, EA, Disney, or something like that, would their hours differ much from a smaller or less known company?
