How much do you think collage matters in the animation industry?

I think im going to go but, do you think it will make any diffrence as far as the work i get in the animation industry?

Chet, I don't like to tell anyone not to go to college and have their parents hunt me down. I think art school can be a motivator and sometimes introduce you to new ideas and techniques that you may find useful, not to mention all the parties. But, I will say that going to school does not guarantee you a job. The bottom line is your drawing ability. For me instead of showing up to a class every day, I started working and drawing what I wanted to everyday. That meant looking at other artists works that I admired, and they became my teachers. If you do choose to go to school, I would recomend drawing just as much outside of your class assignments. Good luck.
