I just joined the forums and was hoping I could get some advice from some people that are into the subcategory of special effects animation.
I am just wondering what the best way to go about getting starting in this field would be.
I have found that many people say "you should just start doing it" however I don't really want to get into acting/directing/filming so much as working on special effects on computers. If I were to "just go out and do it" then I would be forced to do all of these different elements.
Could anyone give me any advice in getting started in special effects as a career goal? Is it recommended you get an undergraduate degree in a certain field of study? Should I just try to get a job working at a studio that does special effects and try to work my way into it?
Any advice would be much appreciated... I hope this is the correct forum to post in, i didn't see anything about special effects (seems most people are interested in the filming and editing aspect).
Thanks in advance,
