I am always going on and on about how you should follow your passion..your heart (not feelings). And I believe everyone should implemented passion into their life too. But what is passion really mean..?
Passion mean "Creative endeavors that you enjoy immersing yourself in."
For example ; some people maybe are passionate about collecting a stamp. Starting with filling out a selection type of a stamp, then the collector becomes aware of better ways to collect, and maybe even start trading and dealing, and eventually might turn it into a small business. That's "following your passion" in its truest sense.
Road. Following your passion will lead you to
your own personal Emerald City."
Why I take CG and animation as my career? Ever since I was in kindergarten, I always love to draw.. there are so much imagination in my head, that I am so eager to take it out into reality and see it with my own eyes. That's why I draw.. I want to make my imagination becomes reality. And then not when I was in primary school I believe, my mom took me to cinema to saw this movie called "Toy Story". There's something about this movie that really hypnotize me the first time I saw it.. those things look like a real toy, but it's alive, those toys are really moving! And it looks very real to me at that moment.. With this break- through in technology, it looks like you can do anything that you can possibly imagine and bring it to life. Right at that moment I remember I told my mom " that's what I wanted to do when I grow up. I want to create those things, just like them. " I always carry that sentence ever since.. This has been my passion from then and I never thought of doing anything else instead of doing 3D animation along the way. It has been over 10 +years I carry this passion, and still feels good and have a lot of faith about it. This is what excites me in the morning when I wake up..
Well, I think I've been gone on to long about myself here..=P
Passions are what drives us. Someone who ignores his/her passions is not going to lead a happy life.
It is the same like Computer Graphics and 3D animation, it is cool, it is brand new, but is it for you? It is not an easy industry, none of them are, it also requires a lot of hard work.
But if you love it that much, you will keep pushing forward, if you love it, you will have the drive to push forward even when the skies are dark."
Be Passionate People!
