I myself live in holland (The netherland) and am also 18 years old. I am having a problem similar to yours. I myself also want to get in the 3d indutrie and attend a school for that. But in holland there is no school that has that. In my country it isnt big. So i am thinking of going to a school in england or america to studie 3d. Only i dont know where, because i never been to england or america. But i realy want to attend a school.
Do you guys have an sugestion?
With regards to a school here in England, most will offer some kind of degree related to this, but Bournemouth University probably is one of the best (if not the best) for studying 3D/Animation.
I hear in America that the is a very good institute/univerisy in San Francisco.
Bear in mind that as an international student to the US it will cost a lot, whereas you'll be classed as a student from the EU here in the UK and will only pay the standard fees.
With regards to a school in your own country they may not do 3D/animation degrees and courses but i'd assume they would do some art and design based degrees. It might be better in the long run to take a more traditional art and design subject to build those important skills, while learning Maya yourself.
That is exactly what i'm doing myself, i studied traditional animation, i'm am now studying graphic design, and i plan to go onto either a design or drawing degree. To be honest, i feel i'm improving greatly as a designer/artist now than when i just practiced with Maya.
Yeah, but no but yeah but no....
