TL;DR - I have a subordinate who is interested in studying gave development, mostly interested in 3-D animation. Halp, pl0x!
Longer version: I am in the US Navy and have a junior sailor who is interested in getting out of the Navy and beginning a path towards 3-D animation. He has his G.I. Bill, so college is definitely a plausible scenario for him. I’d love to set him up for success whether he stays in or gets out, but while I am more than equipped for helping out with Navy career guidance, my knowledge in game development sits somewhere between “Jack” and “Shit,” with my animation knowledge somehow managing to be even less.
If anyone has any advice (preferably even works in the field), it would be immensely appreciated! Animation advice would be most beneficial, but anything to do with game development is super welcome.
Also, hi @NavyFish because I haven’t in awhile and because I can.
