Animator: Job description An animator produces multiple images called frames, which when sequenced together create an illusion of movement known as animation. The images can be made up of digital or hand-drawn pictures, models or puppets. Animators tend to work in 2D animation, 3D model-making animation, stop frame or computer-generated animation. Computer-generated animation features strongly in motion pictures (to create special effects or an animated film in its own right), as well as in aspects of television, the internet and the computer games industry. The basic skill of animation still relies heavily on artistic ability, but there is an increasing need for animators to be familiar with technical computer packages. Typical work activities Producing animation involves a number of stages including generating ideas, building models and rigging lighting. Computer animation uses software known as CGI (computer-generated imagery). Tasks typically involve:

North Dallas High School mural contest recalls famous grad, animator Tex Avery | Dallas-Fort Worth Education News Tex Avery's cartoons were funny 70 years ago, and they're still funny today. Avery created the wise-cracking Bugs Bunny and awarded him the signature, "Eh, what's up, doc?" He first heard the line at North Dallas High, where he graduated with the Class of 1926. Avery, who died of lung cancer in 1980, once told an interviewer that Daffy Duck was born on White Rock Lake in East Dallas, where he and his friends hunted ducks. Who knew? Avery's animated films - that's what academics call cartoons - are enjoying a renaissance at his alma mater this month. "I grew up watching them on Cartoon Network," said Jesus Martinez, one of the student muralists. "I like the ones with Foghorn Leghorn and Droopy," said Noland Sowels, a 17-year-old senior. Even though Avery created his best cartoons in the 1930s and '40s, they still appeal to young people today. These cartoons started out among the "short subjects" preceding a feature film. Walt Disney was the cartoon king of Avery's era. Enduring images

So I always suggest that short film directors look at TV commercials for inspiration as how to tell a thirty-second story clearly and effeciently. Okay, the next two "C's" are CHARACTER and CONFLICT.
