The Skills That The Professional Animator Needs

Career opportunities as an animator are very wide open. According to Bureau of Labor Statistics data, the work of multimedia and animator artists is projected to grow 8 percent from 2016 to 2026. This is influenced by increasing demand for those skilled in creating animated and visual effects in video games, movies, and television.

The role of the animator itself is very important in producing creative works in the media industry. Let’s name some popular movies with cool animated effects lately, such as Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, and Blade Runner 2049. Don’t you agree that the success of the films is influenced by the support of stunning visual effects?

By studying Animation, we also develop your imagination. Hence, creativity is needed to become a good animator. Not only that, the “weapons” in creating animations must be mastered such as the software of visual effects and animation. For that, interested candidates need direct guidance from qualified teachers to equip their skills in a professional way.

In addition to technical ability, to succeed in a career, animators must also have practical skills that can later be demonstrated when working in the creative media industry. To acquire these skills, one needs to be equipped with industry-focused learning supported by state-of-the-art facilities.

You have the opportunity to gain all these skills when studying at one of Australia’s leading institutions, SAE Creative Media Institute Australia.
