to make this short: i am new here, new to video cutting/animation/special effects (i whish *hehe*).
so from the perspective of the noob that i am i wanted to ask if anyone has had experience in professional film making, any production knowledge or if you could point me in a direction where to look...
i work as a graphics designer but have had the chance to gnaw my teeth into animatics for some tv ads in the last few months - and now i seem to be severely hooked...
yet i seem to be unable to find any usefull information what so ever about where to go to learn some of the following things:
what are the possibilities in film - camera, special effects, cgi, name it - i wana be able to do these things.
i have a short film in planning, but that of course is more or less a hobby thing done in my spare time and also to maybe get a foot in the door with some big distribution company
in other words - i wana work in film. any of you guys have information of where to look for training, internships or something like that? i live in austria and there doesnt seem to be too much i can carve up concerning information about this.
ok, it wasnt short but i hope to have illustrated my questions
sorry for some messed up spelling or grammar mistakes that i might have made, my english has gone little rusty in the past years...
thanx in advance for anything you might be able to toss me
