Animator CV Template

Animators work for film production companies releasing cartoons or computer animation in their films.  Some animators also work freelance and present their ideas to prospective film producers.  Animators are artists who are mainly responsible for using computer software or basic animation techniques to create artistic films or cartoons.  They meet with clients to discuss their needs and present concepts and storyboards based on the film script and initial ideas of the film directors.  Animators are capable of producing illustrations and making many frames of illustrations to be used in creating movement of characters.  They rely heavily on their artistic ability but must also be trained and constantly seeking improvement of their craft.
