Job Description for Animator, 3D

A 3D animator uses computer software to create vivid, engaging video animations that can be used for web design applications, computer games, commercials, and full-length movies and television programs. 3D animators typically work with developers, designers, and directors, making initial sketches and helping create quickly sketched stills of the work to be done (called storyboards). Working in close consultation with these supervisory developers or designers, the animator then uses professional drawing and animation programs to model characters, backgrounds, and movements on screen. The animator develops a shading strategy and works to create movement of the elements on screen to make them match the designer's intent and in a way that is consistent with the storyboards created earlier in the process.

In an animation or video design studio, 3D animators traditionally work as members of an animation team. Animators must be able to collaborate and work well with one another to create a cohesive piece of animation that fits the overall project. Animators typically have deadlines for their work and are expected to work efficiently and promptly report difficulties that might extend deadlines.

The educational requirements to work as a 3D animator are typically flexible. Many employers require a portfolio of work and a resume with extensive practical experience in the field. Individuals interested in this line of work can take vocational, technical, and university classwork in this area.
