Animator To begin, with I would like to ask what people focus nowadays when itcomes to a video game, web design or in some cases a movie? They focus on the look,the visuals, the feeling you get when you see beautiful images This paper will touch a variety of points such as whatis needed to be an animator this includes salary, working conditions, andmore. Being in the animation field give you the opportunity ofworking with other professionals from different parts of the world as well ascreating projects together to make marvelous creations. Keep in mind that beingan animator is not easy. Many animators have no social interaction at all. Theyalso spend a lot of time alone working on individual projects.
Many animatorscommunicate via email, cell phone, Skype, and in person. Most of them areresponsible for the work that has been completed by others. Occasionally theyare placed in positions that can cause conflicting situations. Such doingthings that affect the overall of the project that they are currently workingon. To be an Animator there arealso certain requirements or qualification. In some companies, it is requiredto have a certain amount of knowledge or a certificate. A portfolio comes inhandy as well, the portfolio needs to have your resume and the portfolio needto demonstrate a set of your professional work. In some other companies’previous experience is a key factor.
Companies need to know how skillful youare in the field. That is also an advantage when it comes to choosing who isthe best candidate to work in the company. Another thing that isimporting to know if you want to be an Animator is salary. Salary depends onlocation and amount of work. For example, in Los Angeles the approximate annualsalary for an animator is $51K, they are earning about $21 dollars an hour. InOrlando, Florida the annual salary is about $48k. So, salary really depends onlocation and amount of work and keep in mind that overtime was not included.There are benefits for Animators too.
One of the biggest benefits is being ableto express their personal expression through their work. Another benefit istime. When Animators are working on their individual projects, they can setworking times. Also, animators have the freedom to create. But the freedom tocreate depends on whether you are working on your own or for someone else. Let’s not forgetadvancement. As technology increase the demand for better software andinstrument is fundamental.
This includes products that we use daily such aspaper, pencils, etc. Employment for animators is expected to grow 10%from 2016 to 2026. Its growth is faster than the average for many otheroccupations. Its fast-growing is since people are always looking better-lookingvisuals. Sometimes its grow can be slowed by unpredicted events, however, itcan be brought back by hiring foreign animators that will work for less amountof money. That is a good method.
Paying people outside the United States is waycheaper, sometimes what you can pay an American animator $10-$20 dollars anhour you can pay a foreign animator a little less than that. In conclusion being anAnimator is an overwhelming profession that many won’t even think on applyingfor due to many circumstances. But for those like me that likes to take risksand do what they like the most then this job can turn to be fun and full ofenjoyment.
