Hey, I'm a wannabe animator and I was wondering which school I should try to enter? I live in Scandinavia so The Animation Workshop (Denmark) lies closer to me (although I would still need to move to another country), but I heard it's best to go CalArts, that you're more likely to get a job in the industry if you make friends and connections with people there, because people are more likely to hire someone that they know. I know many animators who have their own shows went there (The creators of Flapjack, PPG, My Life as a Teenage Robot, etc.). I can't think of any significant people who studied at The Animation Workshop, I don't know if it's worth studying there if you can't get hired.
Not that I'm saying I'm good enough to enter CalArts (I know it's hard to get in), I'm just wondering what you think.
