College Student Seeking to Interview Professionals in the Field

Hello fellow animation enthusiasts!

I am currently a student at LoneStar Community College studying 3D Modeling and Animation with an overlapping interest in stop-motion animation. As part of my capstone portfolio class I need to reach out to a few working industry professionals and interview them about their experience in the field.

Reaching out this way may be unusual, but I was curious if there were any animators in this community who are in the industry and would have time for some questions about your experience?

I am specifically interested in connecting with an Animator, Character Artist, Set Designer, Environment Artist, or Concept Artist.

Appreciate anyone who might even be able to point me to some specific contacts!

Thank you
