I'm going into my senior year of high school and probably like a bunch of other artists my age, i'm freaking out about college applications. I've already put together the final list of colleges that i've started applying to but what i'm more worried about is my porfolio. although i've been interested in art my entire life, i have only just recently decided i want to go into the visual arts field, more specifically animation. now with a limited amount of time and lack of previously completed artwork to put in my porfolio, i'm stressing about what i have to do and what colleges want to see.
i'm hoping that someone who is in this field right now can help me with the porfolio process. at the moment i'm interested in claymation, stop-motion/pixilation, and 3D CA. i'm also leaning more towards character animation than experimental animation (for those who are familiar with CalArt's portfolio requirements). any tips on what to include/what makes the perfect animation porfolio will be much appreciated!
