I recently graduated from University with a STEM degree. I've been going through the motions to end up here, and now I think I don't really want to spend my life working in science. I've always asked myself what I want to do, and I've realized that the only "work" I've actually enjoyed creating was a Source Filmmaker animation I made a while ago. I also really appreciate animated movies, how they look and move. The idea of being a 3D animator appeals to me in a way no other career does right now.

Am I a retard for wanting to turn my back on my previous education for a new path? I've been trying to learn Maya so I can try to make some stuff to see how I like it before I commit any significant amount of time and resources. How much education do 3D studios usually require, if at all?
