Getting into the animation industry *spoiler alert*
This is a cross-post from my blog. I’ve been wanting to write something that sums up my journey to becoming an artist in the animation industry, for myself, my friends, and people who are considering the same path. It’s pretty long, sorry!
I’ve been wanting to write this blog entry for a long time, but I told myself that I wouldn’t until after I’d found a job. I knew my opinion on my current situation was severely biased and I wouldn’t be able to deliver the facts with a clear perspective. In fact, I was about to break my own rule and just write an update anyway, because I was tired and bitter and at my breaking point, when the seemingly impossible happened. I’m now employed, in the film industry, and as an artist. I’m doing what I’ve always wanted to do.
I’ve put this blog on hold because I’ve been dealing with a lot, and I think it’s about time I explained. Of course, the problem with waiting so long is that now I have to sum up over a year in a way that won’t put everyone to sleep.
