The career path that i have chosen is animation. Animation is the movement of pictures by a slideshow of frames created by computer or hand drawings. Animations can also be recorded such as a flip book, motion picture film, or a video tape. Animation can also consist of a moving gif, flash animation or moving video. There are a variety of methods when it comes to do an animation like the traditional method of stop motion animation that consists of paper cut outs, puppets, and clay figures.
Early examples of animation can be shown in paleolithic cave paintings where animals are mostly shown with indescribable things like many legs. One of the first picture films was in the 1900s called the enchanted drawing and then the first animated film followed called the "humorous phase of funny faces" by Stuart Blackton who's is now considered the father of american animation. Detailed hand drawn animations require a team in order to make the production fast. The team of animators draw each frame by hand with many details with shading, background and etc.
Overlook of the job
Animators salary differ depending on which area you live in. For example the estimated salary is 63,000 a year but, if you live in California the average job salary would be about 76,000. computer animators have to use a certain kind of software known as CGI or computer-generated imagery. Animators create story boards, draw 2-D sketches, design scenes, backgrounds, etc, develop the timing of the movements, and use teamwork for many other tasks. The required education is at least a bachelors degree.
