In three years, I went from having absolutely no experience in 3D Animation to working at DreamWorks Animation Studios to teach just about all of the 3D software we use- and I’m not done yet!
Requirements: Bachelor’s degree in computer animation or fine art or graphic art; on the job training, some experience (1 yr for entry level position, 3 or more for mid-level or advanced
Pros and Cons: Pros – Global animation industry is huge; can be quite lucrative; gives you freedom to create on your own; you are paid to express your feelings; brainstorm by visualizing content; go at your own pace. Cons – Time consuming (drawing for each frame); repetition of work can become tiresome, meaningless; long hours can become stressful
Salary: 6% job growth, approximately $63,970 annually
This is my journey- the entire process from when I decided I wanted to be an animator until I eventually get there, and everything along the way that will make it possible. Whether you’re chasing a similar dream, or just interested to see where mine takes me, subscribe to follow along with the incredible journey that it takes to become an animator!
