ANIMATION AND RIGGING

ANIMATION AND RIGGING

The ability to breathe life into characters and drive performance is a must within this position. Animators drive the performance and give life to objects and characters, showcasing thought process, mood, action, reaction, objective (etc) just like an actor. They should understand the character’s motivation and be able to convey this to the audience effectively and realistically.

RESPONSIBILITIES

In addition to the above, an animator will not only be driving the performance of any character within the piece but may also be called upon to animate “inanimate” objects such as vehicles, planes (etc), background assets which affect the mood of the shot. He / she should be able to plan, discuss and conceptualise the requirements of the director who will drive the performance of any character just as he / she would with an actor.
