Should I continue Pursuing a career in animation?

Dec 9, 2018

Hello there, I’m looking for some input in my current dilemma. As in the title suggest I’m questioning if I should further pursue a career animation. I’ve been out of school for six years, I have a degree in media arts and animation. I focused on 3d character animation. I’ve had no luck in getting any form of internship after school was completed and had worst luck finding work as a animator. The closest I’ve come to the field was teaching a single class in animation that paid next to nothing and require massive travel time but I thought it was a job worth doing. And last year at a friend’s company they were looking for a animator and it was entry level position. I was so excited and this lite a fire under me to make material and give it my all. I made a at least 3 new pieces for a new demo reel and made a new site. I was able to get a interview in mid march. I don’t believe I did so well at the interview but I was given their animator test which was to animate set projects. I was able to make all the props, an environment, lighting effects, some basic rigging, and new animation. The test I received only had one prop each and I had to everything else. But I was able to get everything done with a day to spare before my deadline which was two weeks after my interview. Than I had to wait two months to hear anything back and I reach out to them to find out was going on. The HR person got back to me, thank me for reaching out to find out where we stand to find that they changed their methods and no longer required a new animator. Waited two months and never thought to let me know if I had the job or not after I spent so much time trying to apply to the job.

Is Spongebob Squarepants creativity and relevance being exaggerated today?

Dec 8, 2018

I grew up with the show in the early to mid 2000’s, and its imagery still sticks with me today personally as I watch it as an adult. That being said, and not to disregard Stephen Hillenburg’s passing (god rest his soul), but is the show over-appreciated in some circles? I watched a video regarding the topic, which I left a link to below, and, upon watching, challenged how I saw the show, though some find it stretching the truth. Like we all know of it, and have enjoyed it, but do you think enough is enough, and shouldn’t we move on?

A lot of people are interested in collaborating with animators in different ways, for a music video, presentation, series, etc. But the budget might be small, or more likely non-existing. If you are one of these people, I wrote this guide for you to make it easier to make it easier to find an animator to collaborate with.

Advice on how I should pursue a career in animation given my current situation, and if so, how should I go about it?

Dec 5, 2018

Hello,

Where to start? I’m currently 20 years old working towards a degree in Biology, but after some recent soul searching I’m beginning to question my motives. I’ve always had an interest in drawing throughout my life and its ability to tell a story. I’m even trying my hand at creative writing in hopes of writing a series of science fiction novels with my own illustrations, and now I believe I want to pursue this line of work to make those stories a reality. But the major question lurking in the back of my mind is, “how should I go about this?”

My current plan now is to major in Biology and minor in art (and hopefully stick a few creative writing classes in there too) then to apply to Animation programs throughout the US. As far as that goes, my plan is to shoot for CalArts and see where I land. Also, I live in Wisconsin and there isn’t much for animation up here, but I’m lucky in that I have family in California where many of the popular animation schools reside, so hopefully I can work something out there in the future.

From my understanding, some animation programs are willing to accept students into their MFA animation programs if they already have background college experience and demonstrate adequate artistic ability. Is this a better option than pursuing another BA in animation? Fun side note, I was actually very surprised to learn that the creator of Spongebob took a route similar to this, in that he was accepted into an MFA animation program after receiving a degree in biology.

Now some of you may be wondering, “Why don’t you just drop the Biology program if you’re so certain about pursuing animation afterwards?” My answer to that is Biology isn’t so much a safety net as it is something that I enjoy learning about and has in many ways become an inspiration for many of my stories (emphasis on the SCIENCE in science fiction). I believe much of the knowledge that I’ve accrued has enriched many of the worlds I’m creating. Not to mention the emphasis on knowledge of animal and human anatomy is stressed in many bio classes, so that’s a plus!

Hello guys, I’m currently a depressed man in late-20’s working in soul killing office job, saving a little money at a time while paying off student loan. I’ve always had passion for art and wanted to do animation but gave up long time ago before even learning due to fear.

Those who started learning at my age and made it into the industry as full-time, can you tell me your story? I need some motivation…

Hey basically I’m doing animation in Krita but I’ve run into an issue when animating where I only have two layers that can be edited for individual frames, basically most of the layers will say the same across all animation frames. Is there away I can toggle if layers are the same across frames?

Online SVG animation tools for simpler animations?

Nov 29, 2018

I’m someone who just recently started looking into creating better web front-end designs. So when looking into the topic of creating svg animations I of course found that you can do it with css and more complex animations with javascript libraries like e.g. Snap SVG.

But I also found some online tools for creating svg animations like Shapeshifter design and Svgator.

I tested the shapeshifter one for a quick “filling circle” animations which was quite easy to do with an alright looking result though something like this is probably as easy to do with css.

Has anyone tried them before and what’s your opinion on them? Are they good enough when making simpler animations or would css and javascript still be easier/better in the long run?

I’m asking mainly due to the fact that you can’t really find much about them online.
