Animators combine artistic ability, creativity and technological ability to create great stories. From high definition CGI images to two-dimensional cartoons, animation is now everywhere. When we watch movies, play video games and watch television, the work of animators are present. Animation is even used in marketing, where characters are created to entice consumers to purchase a product or service.

Education

To be an animator, technology skills, artistic talent and communication skills are a must. The ideal animator is also a good storyteller. It is not always essential that the animator hold a college degree if she can prove her talent through a portfolio. However, some employers prefer animators have a bachelor’s degree in a program such as computer graphics or animation, particularly employers who specialize in computer animation.
