What this job is about
Some of your favorite cartoon characters probably started with a sketch on a piece of paper. However, it was the computer animator who took a flat image and was able to create lifelike movement on a screen. Thanks to new technology and software, computer animators are able to input sketches and characters to add movement, dimension and hilarious squeaky voices, all standard for your favorite Saturday morning cartoon marathon – complete with giant bowl of cereal. Ideal for someone who is both creative and technologically savvy, you'll love seeing the flow of animation and characters popping off the page while working with other talented artists and animators.
