Some of the skills needed to be an animator or multimedia artist are innate. Gifted animators will have the ability to see how things and people move and be able to recreate that movement in their drawings. But there are still things for future animators to learn, and that’s where animation studies and film schools come in. Here’s a glimpse of the coursework you might expect to find in an animation program.
• Art and design classes to develop drawing and illustrating skills.
• Instruction in dance, expression, and choreography to aid in understanding movement – a critical skill for a future animator!
• Production, music, and narrative classes help animators enhance their story-telling skills.
• Technology and computer courses – most modern animation and editing is done on computers, and there are some critical programs to learn.
No one is born with the knowledge of animation and multimedia; we learn to do many things in a lifetime, and nearly all of them get better with practice.
This book is going to help you in the learning process to have in-depth knowledge about animation. There are more benefits to studying the best books. And this is quite a good one on this topic.
