Hi everyone I'm new here!
Hello AWN, I've recently graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering. Back in high school, I was a part of the animation studio that we had. I took all of the animation courses that were offered. I learned so much about the fundamentals of animation; storytelling, storyboarding, character design, layout, software, principles of animation etc. I was determined to go off into college and study animation, however that dream was put aside when I knew I had to support my family and pursue a career they would appreciate and help them when I graduate. Here I am now, with sooo much free time compared to what I endured studying engineering, and that dream I once held is slowly coming back to me. So I look forward to making a few posts here and introduce my dream and take any advice from successful artists here.
Hi, I'm a complete novice to anything artistic and I want to learn how to animate. I have no goals of making it my job, I just want to be able to create something that I will enjoy.
Hi everyone, I'm not an animator but I collaborate with an animator for theatre productions (plus I love animation :) ) I've got some questions I hope members can help me with - cheers :)
I'm an aspiring animator and I joined this site to get information on how to achieve my goal. I read online that it helps to get a degree. I'm not sure whether to get bachelors or associates. I've always been interested in entertainment and I love to draw so I think animation would be a good career fit for me. If anyone can give me advice on how to go about turning this into a career that would be GREATLY appreciated.
Hello, my name is Joel. I'm building some animation software and am looking for feedback on it. Also, we've got a kickstarter going http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/234884968/a-drag-and-drop-social-animation-platform
I'm an art student whose been getting more involved in animating and music (more so animation) among other subjects and interest. Seeing how everybody is pretty old school on here as well as new school I figure this would be a good place to pick up and learn some 2D animation tricks since I'm unfamiliar with that process, all I've been working on is 3D material via After Effects and Apophysis and pretty soon Cinema 4D and Autodesk software. Hope to get as much advice and tips on my work here as well as constructive criticism.
I am interested in digital animation and animation tools.

Hello everyone :)
Hey I love to imagine and create, and being slightly different from the rest. By joining this website I'm just trying to get a feel for a better idea of who I am and who I wish to be.
hi this is jeeva .....expertise in 2d animation.....and other digital design works....looking for animation project..thanks
I am a 25 year old student (but currently taking a break to save up more money), majoring in Psychology. I have always been good at drawing, but for some reason I had never considered it as a possible career path. However, I have come to appreciate good entertainment as of late, and after seeing some particularly well done and touching animated features, my interest in drawing has been rekindled.
Still, I know that being good at drawing doesn't necessarily make me good at animation, so I'm here to learn as much as I can about the whole process, and perhaps post some of my work.
I'm brand spanking new! Thanks for the help forum :p
I am Adi and I work as a Relationship Manager in ProofHub. Since childhood I have been addicted to animated movies and series. I have seen various cartoons and movies like Shrek, The Adventures of Tintin, Up, Kungfu Panda, Stuart Little, Life of Pi. I signed up on your forum to gain more insights and knowledge in the field of animation and to know how they collaborate and coordinate for any project requiring animation.
Hello! I'm new.
I've been working as an artist for about 13 years now. Video games, and ISD training and storyboarding, shooting video. You name it. I've done it. Just short of creating an animated feature film all by myself that is.
The company that I currently do ISD and Training software for is closing down and I will be unemployed very soon. Within the month.
I'm trying to decide if this is the time. The time for me to jump out, and do what it is I want to do. To finally break away and take my destiny into my own hands and try to sell my animated show ideas and start my animation studio.
I've never sold a piece of work that is "mine". It's always clients ideas, and stories, and things that they want to see made.
It might be time.
But...I'm terrified! Honestly. I'd rather walk into the local shopping mall bare naked with a sign over my head that says "I slept with one of your parents, guess which one", than to embark on the road to seeing my stories and ideas show up on a weekly or bi-weekly basis on the television.
So I've registered here to read, and write, and ask, and answer in hopes that I'll get my brave on, or just take another "job", where I can go home at night, hug my kids, kiss my wife, pet my dog and mow my lawn.
Lets see what happens shall we?

Hello, I've been animating professionally since 2007, fell off the horse for a bit, and now I'm trying again.
Hello all! I'm Joseph Boughman co-founder and current CEO of the internet based animation company Toad Pencil Productions. I join in the hopes of finding people who may be interested in joining my team.
I love open source software, animated films and chocolate milkshakes.
Beyond a few enthusiastic and very amateur attempts, I'm not really an animator... I'm a writer.
I'm here to meet real animators and hopefully find some collaborators to work on some projects I've been working on.
I have a talent for drawing and I am looking to pursue a career in the animation industry, I am interested in storyboard artwork. I have the skill, the work ethic and the drive but lack the experience. I am hoping to find good advice from well experienced people as I am a new comer to the industry looking for a place to start.

I am an investor and member of a animation related firm and would like to read and inform the forum about new technologies and read about them.
My name is Chris and I'm living in Japan with my family. Currently, I teach English and stumbled upon creating simple animations to help my students learn. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and decided that if I'm going to use animation, I should do my best and so now, my interest in perfecting the craft has been piqued.
