Start by saying more about what your dreams are. What do you think you want to do in the future? If you don't know, what types of things would you like to do in your work? What do you know how to do already?

Be as specific as possible, and you'll get answers that are tailored for you.

Well, assuming you're talking about 3D animation, I've always liked the tutorials and forums over at www.3dtotal.com. They are under the "Free Stuff" menu item. There are tutorials for different levels of difficulty, so you'll have to look through them to find ones teaching the basics.

If you don't have a 3D modeling package, Maya PLE is free. All you renders will have a watermark over them, but it's an awesome tool. The actual version is a few thousand dollars. Autodesk also offers a 30-day trial of 3ds Max, which I like better for modeling.

I don't follow you, sadly. Do you want to make games? Is that what you're asking? Or you don't know what to do to begin with?

If it's the first, you gotta ask yourself this, do I want to make games from scratch? What type of games do I want to make? At what detail?
If you're all alone in this, then you'd have to learn everything about game programming, starting with programming itself.

If it's the latter, then you gotta look deep into your future and see what is it that you wouldn't mind doing (preferably like doing) and start there. Also, if it's your life money-making job, then I'd suggest also looking into the profitability of the business.

I hope I helped.
