An Animator creates the illusion of motion thru drawings and movement of images to convey a meaning or a story. The Animator heavily relies on his/her artistic ability, although there is a growing need to be familiar with technical computer packages (animation software). Animators work in 2D animations (such as cartoons), 3D model making animation, or computer generated animation.
Basic Educational and Training Requirements
Even a high school graduate can be an Animator provided he/she has the artistic ability to sketch/draw and has good imagination. This is what they call the Entry-level Animator. However, to be a Key Animator, certain trainings on the following subject matters will be useful: graphic design/illustration, 2-D and 3-D design, art and design, spatial design, film and video, multimedia and computer aided design. Some of these trainings are offered by some animation companies to their entry level Animators.
