I have dreamed of animation since I was a child, and dreamed of becoming a 3D designer and animator for movies for years. I am currently in college full time, my back-up plan, and about to receive my Associates degree, which is paid for through scholarships I received for good grades and financial aid. Along with full time school, I am working at a warehouse full time, 40-50 hours a week so that I may save enough money to go to the DAVE, Digital Animation and Visual Effects, School in Orlando FL. I am also doing tutorials and learning everything I can about 3D design and animation in my free time on the program Blender, similar to Maya, the professional program used for movies. The school is a one year program with four semesters in it, five days a week with five hours a day of class time, and because it is a specialized school and not a college or university covering all subjects necessary to be accredited, they do not accept financial aide. The tuition is $33,500 and they highly recommend not working during that year so students may spend all of their time on the projects, so my long term goal is to save and raise around $45,000. My dream is to go to the school and go to California to work on movies such as Transformers and The Avengers or animated films like How to Train Your Dragon or Pixar movies. This project is to raise 10% of the tuition, please help me achieve my dreams!
