I'm looking for a career change. I'm a cinematographer. Award winning, better than many. But I am anti-social as fuck. I can't network to save my life, literally.

I was looking at 3D animation for a while. I've noticed 3D animation jobs tend to have clients come to you, rather than the other way around. I also wanted to do something design oriented. As a result, I was thinking about doing jewelry design. I used to do this a while ago for fun as prop preparations. I figured if I learned how to do that, get a 3D printer for wax molding, and hired out someone to make it, I could make a better living.

Does this sound plausible?

What software would you recommend for this? I'm new to 3D animation other than a little bit of C4D. I found "Matrix" but am not sure if that is some kind of plug-in for CAD or what.
