depends on what you want to do in that industry. If you want to be on the technical side then maths helps certainly, if you want to animate then no not really.

What Pure said. If your in the more artistic side, i dont think its really a requirment, but it would certanly be a plus to have some maths knowlege for scripting.

Yeah...You don't really need to be mathematically inclined to thrive in 3d, but like you said...it would definately be an advantage for things like scripting, but for other stuff like modelling, i don't think it would matter.
