What are the basic requirements for becoming an animator?

Animation is nothing more than technologically enhanced immersive storytelling. So you’ll need to be either a brilliant visual storyteller or a master of the technical medium that brings a narrative to life on screen.
As a result, two distinct responsibilities emerge.

  • Creative Artist – People who are skilled in storyboarding, character drawing, and general conceptual fleshing out of a story are known as creative artists. This is really challenging.

  • Technical Artists - People who use technology to bring a visual tale to life on paper - 2D/3D, rigging, modelling, VFX, and so on. This necessitates a strong understanding of graphics and computer science.

You can choose the sector you want to work in based on your interests and capabilities. In each of these areas, especially creativity, you’ll need a large portfolio to show off your work.
