Animators work as part of a larger team to produce animations for a range of media. They may oversee a specific element of the animation process or the full lifecycle from storyboarding to production depending on the scale of the production.

Animators need a high level of creative ability alongside the ability to work collaboratively across the production process. They need to be able to adapt to changing processes and technology and to adjust their style in line with the production they’re working on.

Key skills

The technical skills needed for an animator will depend on the type of production they’re working but will include digital animation software such as 3ds Max or Blender.
