How should I go about getting a career in animation? I'm looking to get a career in animation. Making video games, cartoons, shows (like Japanese anime), and even movies (like Wall-E). I haven't finished high school yet so I'm wondering, how should I go about pursuing this right now? Any special classes or electives I should be taking at this time? Thank you very much for all suggestions and answers!
i'm not a pro or anything but it's common sense.
There are many jobs in the animation industry ,
writers,editors, producers,colorist , background, and so on, depending on what u want to do.
if u want to be the person who draws and color the frames you need to have a good art background and have good solid drawings an example http://blacksataguni.deviantart.com/

If u can't break it into the animation industry then u can make your own independent animation, like Terrence walker, makoto shinkai , and many others out there.
if u can afford tvpaint ,buy it and start making animation already, it's a great start., tvpaint is for everyone beginners, and pros alike. Studio ARtfx got some pretty good tutorial videos u can buy. http://www.studioartfx.com/
