Some worthy advice:

Steve Flack is Head of the School of Media Arts & Imaging at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee. He has the following words of advice for those interested in pursuing animation study:

"Britain has a great reputation for creating award-winning animation and the growth in both traditional and computer animation is set to continue. New challenges and opportunities for creative animators exist in multimedia, the worldwide web, computer games design, digital simulation, virtual environments and special effects. Although animation has never been a more relevant and exciting career prospect than now, you will need a good foundation and preparation in the subject to compete for the best job opportunities."

"It is recommended that you select a reputable animation school or degree course that combines the classical techniques with contemporary computer imaging methods. Look for courses that include film language, lighting for film, 3-D layout, composition, sound design and other film study elements that are essential to allow students the opportunity to understand and exploit their individual abilities and develop relevant professional skills."
