  • Multimedia artists and animators create special effects, animation and visual images for television, movies, video games, and other media. They create two and three-dimensional models and digital animation showing objects in motion or illustrating a process.

    What do they typically do:

    • Create graphics and animation using computer programs and illustrations.
    • Work with a team of animators and artists to create a movie, game, or visual effect.
    • Research upcoming projects to help create realistic designs or animations.
    • Develop storyboards that map out key scenes in animations.
    • Edit animations and effects using feedback from directors, other animators, game designers, or clients.
    • Meet with clients, other animators, game designers, directors, and other staff, which may include actors, to review deadlines and development timelines.
    • Assemble, typeset, scan, and produce digital camera-ready art or film negatives and printer's proofs.
    • Create pen-and-paper images to be scanned, edited, colored, textured, or animated by computer.
