Your Chance to Be Part of the Digital Animation Industry
What is digital animation? If you are an avid movie buff, often surf the internet or have walked across the street overlooking a giant electronic billboard, chances are, you have seen digital animation in action. As an example, seeing toys coming to life in Toy Story 1, 2 and 3 are one of the many forms of digital animation.
Those born before the 90s probably remember animated films like those by Walt Disney once took years to be produced as each frame were hand-drawn. When technology became more sophisticated, the era of digital animation was born and complemented traditional animation well. Thus, the demand for digital animation as a career grew.
Observing the digital animation market trends, while its demand for talents grew, so did its shortage.
