    ive been ok thanks, just a little piled on this term at school. The exams coming up decide what level class i will be in next year, and if i don't get into at least level 3 then i cant earn any higher than a C grade at GCSE in that particular lesson, so im feeling the pressure. how have you been?

    Cool! So what programs do you use to animate at the moment! A really good traditional one that I've used before is called Digicel Flipbook! You should check it out! I believe it's free to download, too!

    Ah! I thought I replied to this! I guess Pokecommunity killed my post!

    Well GCSE's are qualifications you get at UK colleges. (I don't know much about that because I was born and went to school in Canada, actually..) but to be an animator you just need to have very solid animation skills- shown with a demo reel.
    I learned 2D animation throughout uni.. and we did do like 3 months of 3D animation as an introduction, but I basically taught myself. If you have strong 2D skills, it is more likely you will be able to bring them over to 3D. But don't worry if you're not the best at 2D.. I know some great 3D animators who can't draw. Drawing helps but it's not everything.
    Solidify your animation skills.. so.. balance, weight, timing, spacing, etc.
    I recommend doing stuff on your own, too! Do you have any work that you'd want to get critique on?
    I think joining the 11 second club will also be great practice too- you can get feedback from fellow animators there, too. (Check it out.. just type 11 second club into google.. it's a cool site.)
    I worked my butt off because I wanted to get better myself. Not all the teachers or resources were good at my school, like yours, but if you're willing to work hard you can achieve it!

    also just a question, what GCSE's and what not do you need to become a animator?

    Sorry I don't have either of those mostly through prefrence and having issues with them so I shut my accounts down. That's such a cool job to have! Unfortunately for me I don't have as much animation experience as I wish right, my school is a languge school so focus' mainly on that, making the I.T departmeant underfunded. The best I've had so far is a few weeks of 2D animator programs and some 3D cartoon designs. It sounds ok but its literally to the absolute minimum of what they could try to teach us. Luckily next year I do my options meaning I can take animation as a subject itself instead of bits and pieces in I.T.C

    That's cool! Yeah I can definitely help you out; I work as a videogame animator right now so.. yeah! Can chat about that and you can ask me anything you'd like! Do you have skype or MSN or something that may make chatting a bit easier? If not we can stick to VMs; it's all cool :3

    Hi Kura! Id love to have you as a mentor, thanks! animation is my future dream job, either in video games or film. The times should be ok I finish school at around 3:30 but I get home at 4ish and like you I tend to be on the internet late into the night after I get home. Nice to meet you to

    Heya Mitch! Welcome to PC!! I oversaw that you love animation and games and you're looking for a mentor! I'd be happy to be yours if you'd like that! :3

    Timezones are good! I may be on a little later than you because I have work usually until around 5-5:30 (I have flexi hours so I get home anytime between 4:30-6) but I'm usually online until late at night. (I'm in the UK too so you don't have to worry too much about timezones)

    Anyways, it's nice to meet you!


All times are UTC -8. The time now is 09:15 PM.
