I've been doing a lot of talks lately at schools and 6th form colleges, getting the word out about our new animation and VFX course here at Bucks. So far I've been getting a great response, though it is tough for students to get a good feeling for what a career in animation might involve, and what the options are. And, in a fifteen minute pitch, there is only so much you can say.
Above is a 20 minute video which talks in a bit more detail about careers in animation. It explores some of the possible choices for a well-trained animator, some of the different kinds of careers available, and what sort of skills that a graduate will need to break into the industry.
