Hello! I'm a new hopeful animator mostly self-taught, with a focus on 2D animation. I eventually hope to open my own animation studio, but that is far in the future. I do plan on going to school for animation and possibly getting studio experience, before I step on my independent journey.
Besides that I'm a professional writer who has always dreamed of expanding my storytelling capabilities to include graphic novels and animation. It's a long and hard journey ahead, but I'm excited and determined.
Thanks for granting me access to your forum and I look forward to sharing with and learning from other members.
Hello. I play with animation software occasionally and would like to share what I've done, as well as see what others are doing.

I like to animate with 3d studio max
Hi my name is Alex, from London. I am a junior game animator and I wanted to share my first 3D short film with the other member of the forum and gather some feedback. Thank you!
Had an account here in 2007 that I couldn't retrieve so I'm making a new one. I'm an indie animator here to discuss animation in all forms. I love 2D hand-drawn stuff and I'd like to see it come back to some amount of strength in the States. Seems unlikely, as Disney has closed its 2D doors for good, and everything here seems to be 3D, but a man can dream.
HereÂ´s my reply....wuhuuuuuuuuuuuu!

Hi I'm John William Walters, and joined these forums for advice and critique!
So a bit about me... I love to draw and write stories, and I've recently started playing around with animations, with a particular interest in 2D animations. I'm by no means an expert but I definitely want to learn the ropes as much as I can, and well I think I could find the answers to my questions here.
New french member here!
I'm actually one of the least artistic people you'll ever meet. I'm on this forum because my brother and I are about 75% done with the code and systems behind a (potential) computer game that we're hoping to put up on kickstarter towards the end of summer. We're looking for an animator.
My name is Chris, and I run a Youtube channel by the Name of ChrisoftheBoyerClan. If you want to look me up that's where you can find me.
I want to animate for a career, and I only recently started on Youtube. At this point I'm just trying to get my name out and share my animations.
Here's the link to my channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/ChrisoftheBoyerClan
Anyway, among other things that I wanted to do with this channel, I'm going to post an animated series every week, titled "The Chris Boyer Show."
Hope that wasn't too rambly for an introduction, but there it is. If you have any comments or questions, you let me know.
I am currently in my first year of a MA Film practice at Nottingham Trent University and recent BA (Hons) Mass Communication and Media Arts from Queen Margaret University. In close collaboration with the research group theatre Fractals my thesis investigates the puppetry and filmmaking techniques and their affection to the contemporary audience. I am due to create three episodes of the life of Diogenes The Ancient Greek Philosopher and I need help on constructions of puppets, design of costumes and scenery. If you are interest to take part on my project don't hesitate to contact me via mail or phone.
I'm about 9 years into an engineering career, but a part of me is now wishing I had chosen animation. I'm just getting started with computer animation as a hobby, while trying to polish my art skills on my own. Iâ€™d like to get some formal education, but I havenâ€™t decided what subjects and level of education to focus on. Probably not a bachelorâ€™s degree. Iâ€™m hoping to find some general direction on this site, and see what the industry is like. If you actually read this whole thing....my bad.
My name is SkatePro........

Posting to gain access to forums.... Also per the request here is a little information:
I have always had a passing interested in animation growing up. I was raised on the old disney movies and then graduated to anime and computer animation. Recently I have been watching the older disney stuff again and was interested in the techniques that were shown and how the scene was built. I am looking for general background information on animation, techniques, and what level of efforts go into animation as a whole.
