Many people fell in love with animated features when they were children and carried that love throughout their adult lives. Today, animation has found many new venues, including video games, educational systems, and self-published movies. Some would like to turn their love of animation into a career.

Animation begins with a simple drawing on a piece of paper, adding movement and motion with just slight variations. If you can animate in that medium, there are no boundaries to your creative potential. 

Animation involves creating film through traditional or digital means and animation using the latest computer animation technology. Some of the most popular examples of film and animation techniques can be seen in animated features such as Happy Feet Two, Paddington, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, The Lego Batman Movie, Beauty and the Beast, Ready Player One, and Welcome to Marwen.

Animators need more than drawing ability and technical skills to have successful animation careers. They need to be storytellers with a flair for the dramatic. Animation has come a long way in the last few decades. It has applications from advertising to special effects to video games. Video games, animated movies, special effects, motion graphics, and even architectural renderings all depend on the work of animators. As animation becomes more ubiquitous, animators are increasingly sought after by employers.

You can see examples of animators’ work everywhere, including the animated icons on your phone, the visual effects on the latest feature films, the interactive worlds and characters on games consoles, multi-million-view viral web animations
