The Craft and Career of an Animator

In this circle we will be focusing on improving our skills in animation while also learning how to navigate the industry. The goal is to help you understand how to develop the skills needed to get and maintain a job as a 3D animator. Students are encouraged to develop new shots and/or work on existing ones.

In these sessions, using drawovers and written feedback, you will get to experience what it’s like to work on a shot in a studio setting, but without the limitations of a real production. We will also discuss important topics including applications, interviews, salaries and working within a production.
