Animators have a lot to think about when picking the right industry for their skills.
Animated videos are in high demand. Whether it is cinema, or the internet, animated videos are becoming the prime method for creating high quality videos without the need for sinking large resources into using full-motion.
The capacity of animated videos to be so versatile has proven to them to have a place nearly anywhere. So if you are a creator, it can be a daunting task to decide which industry to pursue and grow a career in. The good news is, there are tons of options for you. Making animation videos can be useful in many different areas of the industry. We have narrowed them down to the top four places that are ideal for animated videos.
Feature films are a multi-billion dollar sector that is dominating most of the global cinema right now. There are many large smaller studios plus a handful of gigantic ones that churn out super high quality animated film features.
Most of these companies are extremely competitive and are only looking for the best of the best. They have artists on their roster with years of experience plus state of the art training.If you are up to the challenge, then consider posting your portfolio to a movie studio that might find your skill useful.
Otherwise, make some on your own. With a large enough team, you can independently make animated movies and release them under a studio publisher.
Marketing is now a lot easier, thanks to animated videos. Motion and graphic artists are plentiful in advertisement agencies and perhaps you too can find a place there. Animators are in high demand for making commercials that run on television or the internet.
Advertisement can be a great place for you to foster a career and then move on if that isn’t your cup of tea. We understand that most artists are more comfortable working in a place that doesn’t constrain or guide them, and marketing may not be the ideal place for such a thing. But it’s a good starting point to grow your own skills while exploring other territories.
- Short Films
Smaller companies have been making hundreds of short films per year, thanks to the freely available web platform, as well as the low resources it takes. You can try your hand to make a short film or perhaps work for a company that makes short movies.
Whether it’s videos about public awareness, or cartoon clips, animated shorts have a host of options for animators and are a great area to be in. If you check out the online video websites, you will find dozens of animated shorts in a single search. They can be informative and give you a better sense of what to expect.
Cinematic or cut scenes were first popularized by video games, but have since found their way into trailer and TV shows. Cinematic teams usually work in tight groups and are very similar to short films, but their purpose is to expand a story told elsewhere. Therefore, you are working with resources already provided to you and all you have to do is mostly animate without the worry of telling a story.
Making cinematic is the closest that the animators get to making feature films as they have the same or even more detail than the movies, but last only for a few minutes.
