I knew nothing when I started college. I just knew I wanted to draw things and I wanted to tell stories. I guess that meant I wanted to become an animator. So I could bring the stories to life.
So, let’s assume you are reading this blog because you know nothing. Except that you’re interested in animation and possibly, becoming an animator.
A good way to begin is to familiarize yourself with the verbiage or the lingo if you will, of animation. I’m talking words like storyboard, animatics, pre-visualization, and of course, all the names of the different types of software and programs you will want to use. I have started a vocabulary page to help you with this.
