Hello everyone! o7
I hope this is the right section to post this in and I'm sorry for any grammar mistakes 😅.
Soo... I've been having a problem for some time which leaves me quite restless and I think hearing some of your thoughts/ideas/experiences could help me.
Last year I finally got into my dream university and I am about to start my third semester as a Animation & Game student here in Germany. For the coming semester we have to write applications for our industrial placement. Now, during my semester break I wanted to build a portfolio, so I have more time to focus on my projects during the semester.
Back when I started this course I didn't know in what direction I wanted to work later because I have always been very interested and curious in almost everything related to games, animation, vfx, etc. So I always told myself "You will probably figure it out during the first semesters... It will all work out and you shouldn't worry too much about it now."
Well it's been 1 year and I still don't know what I would like to do and I feel a bit trapped because I should build my portfolio according to the profession I want to do during my industrial placement. I just can't seem to figure out what I like the most. I only know that I want to work in the games industry. Because of this I basically procrastinate my portfolio like hell and I don't feel ready at all to work in the industry with my current level of skills and knowledge.
Did anyone maybe have had the same experience?
How did you find your profession and do you have some thoughts to share?
Thanks for reading
