Which route for schooling should I take?

Posted: May 20, 2013
Hi guys,
I'm just wondering what your opinions are on schooling. I'm currently enrolled in an associates program for 3D animation, but I'm unsure as to whether or not I should drop it and transfer instead to a university to obtain a BA in fine arts? This university also offers a certificate in digital studies that I could take as well. I know employers are more interested in the quality of work when considering hiring, but I'm just wondering if any of you have went this route and found it to be worth the added effort? Any comments are very appreciated. Thanks!

Your demo reel will trump any papers, its the most important thing when getting hired as a 3d animator.

But at the university you can also learn usefull skills like communication, management etc. These are the things that may help you get a better position, and be more competitive.
