Hi all, i am currently trying to exit a career in Data. I have spent a couple of years learning and utilizing the Adobe Creative Suite and have created succesfull created interactive projects which utilize Flash/Flex and After effects. My goal is to move from the UK to LA to move into the Motion Graphics/VFX industry. My question is whether i would be more likely to get work as a self taught Maya student or whether i would be better continuing my work with After Effects/Flash/Flex etc?
I realise this is a difficult question but i am a motivated and academic individual so presume that i would have techinical and creative merit in both areas to form your response.
