At A Glance: Animation

The computer and digital age has made animation cheaper, more advanced, and more pervasive throughout all media than it ever has been before. Animation work is important for many different projects, including work on films, commercials, and video games. It is instrumental that you have a qualified animator who is capable of bringing your art and vision to life in such a way that it doesn’t detract from the theme or core of the project. Not every project requires an animator, so partnering with a freelance animator on Upwork is often the most cost-effective route. Whether you are developing a 2D cartoon to entertain and amuse the children in us all or you are giving a terrifying zombie its characteristic shambling walk to chase adventurous heroes out of the catacombs, a freelance animator is a flexible solution.

Freelance animators work with a myriad of software options to provide seamless animation to any client’s work. Additionally, they provide insight on lighting effects, interaction between different elements, and experience that helps guide proper framing and visual appeal. Freelancers can animate entire scenes in either 2D or 3D, including backdrop elements and foreground characters, or animators can be responsible for small objects or items added to live action media. Not limited or constrained by size or scope, a freelance editor can collaborate with a director or project lead to create a fully formed visual experience.
