I happened to be involved with animation education in India. There is growing awareness about animation in India, and people from different walks of life would like to learn animation because of the excellent prospects. Now when I say animation I mean 'Character Animation' because the word animation is often used by institutions which give education in multi media softwares.
I feel to learn Character Animation a person should have a certain drawing aptitude.If it is not already there, then it has to be cultivated. My question is:
How Do you teach Character Animation to a person who doesn't know How to draw nor does he want to learn drawing?
Another scenario is where most people don't want to spend a long period of their time learning animation, so my next question is:
What is the minimum time needed to teach the basics of Character Animation to a person.
I'd be grateful if some of you guys can discuss these issues with me.
