What's an Animation Career Like?
Animators need more than drawing ability and technical skill 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. Animation is not kids' cartoons, to be enjoyed after school or on Saturday mornings while eating breakfast cereal. Whether online or on the big screen, animation is in high demand—which makes this a great time to consider an animation career.
Use our resource center to get educated on industry trends, animation software, the skills you'll need—and most of all top animation degree programs that may help you get your foot in the door.
