Media Animation immediately caught my eye the first time I came across it. It is a subject that allows me the opportunity to become the Computer Graphic Artist that I want to be. The simple thought of one day being one of the many brains behind the special effects of an action packed movie or video game is exciting. I didn’t pick this subject just for the possible career choices; but I chose this subject because I wanted a career that I could have fun with and make something that people would remember.
I have always been interested in the more colorful and artistic side of things. Whenever watching cartoons, I would visualize and recreate characters in my own image. Even during school, when there was down time, I would pull out a sheet of paper and begin drawing. Studying Media Arts and Animation allows me the opportunity to achieve a career as a Computer Graphic Artist; by blending art with technology to create something of great entertainment. Art, especially visual arts can change the way an individual see the world. The effect that art has on a person’s life is personal, and can be dramatic; but most certainly is physical.
Setting realistic goals is my key to me achieving my career passion. I currently follow 5- goals that I have set: Obtain Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, make it personal, get a view from the top, create an old-fashioned to-do list, and remain focused by maintaining my momentum.
