  • Hah, I am just beginning to read a book written by Ed Catmill (you should know who that is, and if you don't, he is the co-founder of Pixar), and I would probably say that the animation industry has probably gotten as good as it will get, with the Pixar movies and those ultra high definition video games, i mean, how much better can it get?
    Although that's like saying how much advance can computers and smartphones get?
    We will never know until we get there.
    Pixar/DreamWorks is a one-off company which can't be repeated in our lifetime.

    Animation is def more fun, but probably less money than a lawyer, unless you are the guy who come up with a giant leap tech which surpasses everything existing today.

  • Honestly your chances at being successful as an animator are very slim, you'd have a more secure future as a lawyer. I like to draw myself and am okay at it I guess but you have to be really good and willing to draw until your fingers bleed every day to be an animator and honestly I couldn't cut it.

  • Well... both deal in fiction. Lawyers get paid more for it. Go to www.Salary.com and see.

  • If you couldn't have any job at all, would you be helping people with paperwork to help solve a legal problem, or would you draw/animate stuff?

  • Oh come one you sure can see that animation is much more fun than law. Be creative.

    • Yeah but I really like to read and do that stuff and I know I will have fun with law. And animator... I really love that job too but I hear its more work..

    • Its more work but you will feel more proud and satisfied. Imagine in 50 years watching a 3rd animation movie and saying ''I am a part of this movie, I worked on it many years ago.''
      A lawyer does not do anything creative. Its the same thing over and over again. You'll die out of boredom.

  • Animator better than lawyer

  • It's probably harder to get into animation unless you're incredibly good. Most kids who doodle anime are the ones who think they can make it as an animator though so if you're one of those I suggest lawyer.
    Probably make way more money and it's an easier field to break into

  • Both can be more work. First you need to decide what type of layer you want to be or what type of stuff you want to animate then go from there. Once you decide that, choose the one that suits you best. For lawyer, are you willing to sacrifice moral integrity if you happen to get a client that isn't loyal and/or argue until you have nothing left in you? For animator, are you willing to spend hours staring at a screen and constantly burst out things that may or may not be great?

    If you're great at arguing, go for lawyer!
    If you constant have ideas and are creative, go for animator.

    • Well I am very creative. But I don't want to be staring at a screen all day long working so hard on something that could be a complete failure. But that's what I really want to get better at. And for law, I'm not very good at arguments. I am very emotional and the simplest of things hurts my feelings. But that's why I want to build my self- asteem. I'm very quiet also. I'm not a very loud talker. But I imagine myself 20 years from now, all my friends would be shocked I made it in the law business. I also really love to read. But I'm afraid I will eventually get bored of the job. I mean, its the same thing over and over :/

    • Well if you go for lawyer, I'd recommend becoming a family / child case lawyer. If things hurt you, maybe you could use an emotional appeal to persuade judges often, but animator sounds like your best bet at the moment. Prosecutors will stop at nothing to make sure they win so you've got to be tough as a lawyer. You can't be afraid to fail as an animator. Either job can end in failure but if you're creative then making something might not take as long for you.
