Surprise! I’m still here…just about!
So, in May I finished university and honestly, I was pretty glad! I do miss my friends, I kind of miss the routine and I miss feeling like I have my life together! Since leaving, I have been working and trying to devise a career plan. I am quite an indecisive person but once I set my mind to something, I am very determined.
I don’t regret my degree or what I studied but I’m not sure that I want to carry out any of the roles as a profession. I did enjoy most of them and I could see myself doing them as a job but I’m not totally set on a certain direction. But then…BOOM…an epiphany! The whole reason I wanted to get into film, was to create a whole new world for audiences to escape to. What kind of films makes you feel every single emotion and are appropriate for any age? Disney films, of course! This got me thinking that I’d like to get into animation.
This post is a way of saying what I’m up to but also a way for me to seek advice. Ideally, I don’t want to go back to university, so what is the best way to get into animation and have a successful career in the creative sector? I’m reaching out to animators, drawers and anyone creative to please give me some advice!
Thank you for being patient while I ramble and attempt to do something cool!
