“When the Japanese repair broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something has suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful.”

If you go to a good college with good professors, they’ll teach you everything you need to know about animation, no prior knowledge required. However, it never hurts to teach yourself a little bit.As for applying—your portfolios should have life drawings, both human and animal. Some colleges like you to send in a sketchbook with your portfolio. Other things that could help you are caricatures, illustrations, etc. You really don’t need animations in your portfolio for college, but if you’ve got any you think are good enough for submission, you should send it in! Or since it sounds like none of you have really started making any yet, you could attempt to.If you’re wondering what kind of animation to submit in your portfolio to college, a good exercise would be rough animation to sound (similar to what they do at the 11 second club)—it doesn’t need to be fully finished or even have full lip syncs. You should focus first and foremost on the acting; making your character move and emote.So, you want to animate but you’re not sure how to start? Well, I’m gonna throw some links at you, and I want you to read through them and absorb what they tell you.
The Animator’s Survival Kit
A System for Planning and Timing Animation
Timing for Animation
The Illusion of Life
Free Animation Software
Pencil
PAP 4.0
Blender
Schools for Animation - just some suggestions, not an absolute listSo, my suggestion to those of you who’re applying to college for animation:
Build a strong portfolio with life drawings and work you’re most proud of
Read those books I suggested and practice the exercises in them
It’s not the end of the world if you don’t have any animations in your portfolio
Skill in animation takes time; focus on learning your foundations—drawing, painting, design
Animation is iterative; it might take you five ball bounce exercises before you get it right, so don’t give up, just keep practicing
Hope that helps!
