what to do with my life

Post Sun Feb 28, 2010 4:13 pm

hello everyone. I'm asking around on various forums regarding 3D with hopes that I could get some advice. I'm a junior in high school, and I soon have to start thinking about colleges and what major to go into. my interests are related to modeling and rendering, video games and pretty much anything on a computer.

I'm hoping to hear some advice and stories about what people have done to get work in this industry and what path to take to get there. I've heard of people working as an architect involving 3D, but I'd have no idea how to start that career. I also think i'd like to be a game designer. if anyone has any personal stories about getting into either of these businesses, I'd love to hear.

thanks all

I don't know if this is the best place to ask these kinds of questions, but, I had a lot of similar interests as you did when I was in high school; although I loved to draw as well. I am currently studying industrial design at Carleton University, in Ottawa, Canada. It's a great school and it's a fantastic program. We do research, product design, 3d modelling, sketching, product visualization (I use Yafaray for this one), and a lot more. It might not be exactly for you, but there are a lot of career paths from this degree as well, so, even after you take this degree, you're not stuck!
