Agent says you don't need an Agent

we had an agent come in and deliver a talk about how to get jobs in the industry. The two best pieces of advice he had to offer was to learn a second language, and that you don't need an agent. He also gave some good advice about were to go around the world for jobs right now and how to make yourself more marketable to studios. He brought up the idea to get some live action experience as all of the animation studios are owned by live action studios and those are the studios selecting the directors and filmmakers to work on the animations.
