Q: What is it like working as an Animator?

Animator in Newcastle-upon-Tyne:
"Animation."
Pros: I'm fortunate. I do a job I would otherwise have done in the evening, after work and for free. I love the fact that Animation gives me the possibility to express my creativity through any client need.
Cons: By dealing with many aspects such as networking, marketing, applying for competitions and grants, managing projects and other artists, sometimes gives me the feeling that I'm continuously chasing something without really reaching it. Of course, this feeling goes away when you delivery a project and can feel the enthusiasm and satisfaction of your client.

Animator in Manchester:
"Satisfaction"
Pros: The people and a feeling of satisfaction
Cons: Salary
