Is pursuing an animation career still worth it?

I’ve been hearing a lot of bad stuff going on in the animation industry regarding the big studios and such (ex: CN, Nickelodeon, Disney, etc). and it’s making me have second thoughts on pursuing my career into animation as I want to make a difference in the industry but with things like this going on, I don’t know at this point. I want to do screenwriting but still wants to be in the animation industry even if I’m not an animator. Is it worth doing another career in the animation industry at this time?

How can I get more involved in film/the entertainment industry while still in high school?

I will be a sophomore in a couple months. I already selected electives such as video production(mainly works on my school’s tv show) and animation for this upcoming year and I took “intro to acting” last school year. I’m also in stage crew for our play and musical. I want to gain more experience and I know that these will help but I want to be involved outside of just classes. What’s the next step that I should be taking to get involved and gaining experience?

If I would like to do professional animation for work, should I major in art or film?

So for context, I've always been stuck between going to school for art or going to school for film, because I love the both of them and animation requires knowledge of both skills. I'm always asked about college & I just don't know which one is best for my goals.

Is it worth it getting an associates in illustration?

I am a high school student who is working on getting my bachelors in communications integrated with media management through dual enrollment. Since I will be graduating college two years early, I am trying to think about more schooling options. I love art and I think illustration will pair well with my major. I was thinking I could get my associates in illustration online after I get my bachelors so I can get a more artistic and creative job. Would this be a good option or should I look at something else?
