computer science and 3D animation

Is animation a good career to pursue? I'm currently in my senior highschool year and i'm interested in both computer science and 3D animation. I really don't know which field i should pursue, i am fairly good at math & physics however i'm not that good of an artist. My drawings are relatively bad but i could always work harder on myself and become a better artist if that's what it takes. But is it worth it? is animation a good career to pursue? will i be able to find a job after graduation?

Re: computer science and 3D animation

Hi! I got to meet Dave Arneson (who created Dungeons & Dragons with Gary Gygax), and his co-worker, Dustin Clingman. Dustin was a super cool guy, and he's very approachable. He founded Zeitgeist Games and First5 Games, and is on the Board of Directors of the International Game Developers Association.

You may want to contact Dustin, ask him the same question, and see what he says. Gaming is one direction, and he probably knows more (if gaming is not your thing). He currently teaches at Full Sail University, a game design school in Florida.

Check out the school here: http://www.fullsail.edu/

And here's an interview (even though it's very old) with Dustin: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/print/81504

And here's a video of "Life in the Gaming Industry" by Dustin (note-I haven't watched it, just happened to see it listed): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YM9qqbDUyao

Anyway, it's just one idea. Good luck with whatever you end up doing!
