3D Animators for Hire

An animator or animation designer combines multiple images to give the illusion of a movement. These images can be hand-drawn pictures, digital images, models or puppets.

Animators can either work in two-dimensional animation or three dimensional animation. In 2D animation, animator create flat images, which have width and height but no depth. 3D animators make illustrations with the addition of depth and thus, these animations are more real and life like.

What Does a 3D Animator Do?

A 3D animator digitally models and manipulates computer images using computer software. Images are manipulated by computer software so that they give the impression of movement in a world with depth, texture, varying colors and sound. 3D animators brainstorm with the client to fully understand their requirement and then design the animation and enhance its visual appearance by adding various attributes such as colors, sound, light and environment. 3D animators create drawings of movements and then using computer software, turn them into animation.

3D animators are associated with varied industries and are most popularly seen in film and video production studios, public relations offices, advertising agencies and graphic design firms.

Most 3D animators choose to freelance with different clients and are always looking to get freelance projects as per their interests and can be easily found on Guru – one of the best websites for freelance work.

If you are looking for 3D animators for hire, make sure your freelancer can:

  • Communicate with the client to understand their requirement.

  • Sketch and develop storyboards.

  • Design visuals, build animations and motion graphics.

  • Conceptualize and execute visually striking animation for various platforms.

  • Adapt existing animations to other aspect ratios and formats.

  • Collaborate with other professionals like the editor, cinematographer and director as well as other technical departments to ensure that animation elements are correctly incorporated.

  • Collate feedback from the client and incorporate the changes, if any.

  • Think creatively and multi-task, while adhering to deadlines.

Qualifications of a 3D Animator

It is ideal for your freelancer to have the following skills:

  • Professional education in animation or new media production or related disciplines

  • Advanced knowledge of applications used in graphic designing and animation like Maya, Adobe Flash, Adobe Creative Suite and Cinema 4D

  • Understanding of the aesthetics of visual communication

  • A solid understanding of the principles of body movement, kinematics and other facets of 3D animation

  • Know-how of emerging trends, techniques and technologies

Other than that, a 3D animator should also have good research skills, as each project is distinct from the other and requires an in-depth understanding of the given topic.

Benefits of Freelance 3D Animators

Freelancers keep themselves updated with the innovations in animation technology and continuously update their skills. They may also provide other services such as 3D modeling and character creation. Freelance 3D animators are highly creative individuals and no two pieces of work that they create are the same; they are all unique in themselves, thus leaving no room for copyright infringement issues.
