Read: “So You Want To Be an Animator”

Posted on Monday, 29 December 2008

An interesting article by animator Jeff Treves that I just found. Very well written and interesting so I wanted to share the link to it with you here Link

From article:

“It’s easier for a beginner artist to concentrate self-improvement in a particular area of the production, such as, the animation, or the modeling, or the backgrounds, or etc. Especially in computer animation, artists can be eager to learn multi disciplines, since it is possible for one person alone to create a production quality film.“

“These artists can find jobs under the title generalists, work independently as freelancers, as well as concentrating in a particular area more than the others in order to find jobs. The tools, the softwares, the styles to choose from can be really difficult and confusing. But let me assure that one doesn’t need to know everything, or all of the software packages. A lot of successful artists learn only what they feel comfortable with, and push their skills towards that direction to create stunning work.“

“ There is no one way to reach a goal in animation, especially in computer animation, but infinite ways! The trick is to work and research hard, to discover your own methods, to create your own solutions for problems, and to try perfecting these rather than putting your hands on everything.“
