Make an animated movie

Hey, want to make an animated movie, but you don't know how to start? First of all, you need a good idea. Good ideas are hard to find, but you could always steal one from someone more talented than you. Found a good idea? Very good. Now take good care of it, over time that idea will turn into a story almost by itself.

Next, you should choose an animation technique to tell your story. You want to do it the classic way? It's always a help to study real life creatures. But what if you are absolutely no good at drawing? You could try clay animation, but it's very tedious.

There is an even easier solution, it's called... computers. The great thing about computers is that they do all of the work for you. Now, let's model your first character. To animate your character, you have to add a bone skeleton. When you are happy with the model so far, try adding some props and textures.

Excellent, wouldn't it be nice to make your character talk? Now, shine some light on your scene. When it comes to good lighting, less can be more. Good camera work is also very important, but stay away from weird angles or fancy transitions. I think you are ready to tell your story now.

See, animated movies are easy to make. let's have a look at what you came up with. Hey, want to make an animated movie?
