Animation basics

John May 20, 2019

Instead of directing you to our Making an Animated Movie series, our awesome beginners page, our selection of animation courses, or even our YouTube channel, I decided to write this guide to cover (almost) everything you might need to know when trying to get into the animation industry.

In this article I’ll cover some of the basic concepts of animation, as well as some of the options for people who want to get into the animation industry, but are overwhelmed or intimidated.

I’ll go over what is animation, what it takes to make animated movies (2D or 3D), and even how to start looking for a job in the industry.
