    So here is my problem.. I am sure that I want to follow an animation career in the future but there is one thing that I worry about..
    Should I go straight for Illustration/Animation BA and do an MA in Computer animation or sth ?
    Or
    Do an Architecure BA and an MA in computer animation?

    Since the beginning I kept saying that studying illustration first and then go for animation would be ideal for me but after a discussion I had with my uncle, he kept talking about the future career and the limited opportunities I will have etc.. so I thought that if I study architecture first and then animation I will have more choices, as I will be both an architect and animator..

    what do you guys think? Will I have enough opportunities and a good job career if I go straight for animation?

    Thanks

    Hey! I'm the same as you and have always wanted to go into animation, I'm doing an undergrad degree in Digital Media though and then a postgrad 1 year course in animation I think it's putting all your eggs in one basket if you do 4 years animation, you might not even enjoy it! whereas in your case if you did architecture then animation, you could be really innovative and design 3D computer models of houses etc

    Hi! Thanks for your answer Yes you might be right about the 4 years animation.. but I was also thinking doing Illustration for undergraduate degree which might be more creative as you draw more etc and after that 1 year postgraduate in animation.. I'm really confused right now :argh:

    I guess it's up to whether you feel confident that you will definitely enjoy illustration and can make a career out of art! I decided to do a general degree and then do the postgraduate degree to specify in the niche area I'm interested in :P architecture is a very hard degree from what I've heard, people only seem to only enjoy it if they have a true passion for the subject!!
