DID YOU KNOW ?  Learning Animation is not just for movies, it is a lot more !

Animators create 2D and 3D images in motion for animated films, video games, commercials, and music videos. They create images, as well as special effects and other visual images, using video, film, or computer software. Some of the most common technology used by animators includes Adobe, AutoDesk 3DS Max, MAYA, VectorDesigner, and Ability Photopaint.

Animators make objects or characters appear lifelike by manipulating light, color, texture, shadow, and transparency, or manipulating static images to give the illusion of motion. They “create two-dimensional and three-dimensional images depicting objects in motion or illustrating a process, using computer animation or modeling program and design complex graphics and animation, using independent judgment, creativity, and computer equipment.

Animators also design animation and graphics, create storyboards, and create designs, drawings and illustrations. They create, plan, and script animated narrative sequences, develop multimedia presentations and technical illustrations, and assist with background design and production coordination.
