Games Animation

If you’ve ever played the latest video games and been impressed by how lifelike the characters are, or how much detail has been put into the background, perhaps you might consider becoming someone that makes this happen for a living.

It’s a face-paced and growing industry and as technology is changing all the time, it offers scope to continually learn new things and create ever better results. There’s some attractive salaries on offer for those with good experience and you needn’t think that you’ll spend all day purely animating. The role will also involve creative ideas with other departments and presentations of concepts to leadership, so ensure your communication skills and teamwork are well developed and you’ll be on your way to a thriving career.
