Job Description for Animator, Flash
Flash animators work with Flash software in order to develop animations such as in game design and website design. These animators may be presented with ideas and be responsible for bringing them to life, and they may also be responsible for the initial concepts in some positions. Each project may have different styles, characters, and effects; when creating ads with flash animation, it is also important to research current and successful trends in order to maintain competitiveness. Those in this position must be highly artistic and creative, and some employers prefer those with prior work experience while others search primarily for talent in applicants. Maintaining a portfolio of past work in both digital and print form is highly beneficial and may be required for some positions.Read More...
Educational requirements vary greatly, and some positions require a bachelor’s degree or higher in computer animation, graphic design, or a related field, and experience with other software such as Photoshop, CSS, and HTML is often required, as well. There are both full-time and part-time positions available, and some jobs are on a per-project basis (freelance). This work is carried out primarily in an office environment, though some positions may involve teleworking. Time constraints are often in place, so Flash animators should be able to work well independently, and some travel may occasionally be required to meet with clients.
