About animators

Animation is the process of making single multiple single images and then sequencing them together to create an illusion of movement. Animations can be made up of digital or hand-drawn pictures, clay or rubber models or puppets. A high-quality animation can showcase your product in an original, creative and engaging way - helping to drive your sales and dramatically boost your brand awareness. Search engines also give high priority to video content, so a high quality animated video is far more likely to appear at the top of search results than a text only page. This is why animated explainer videos have become the icing on the cake of any online marketing strategy.

Animators can work in a variety of styles, including 2D animation, 3D model-making animation, stop motion or computer-generated animation. Computer-generated animation has become the most popular type of animation over the last few decades (to create special effects or as a digital animated film in its own right). The type of work animators can be hired for is extremely flexible, from television, commercial content to the computer games industry. Animators tend to use Autodesk and Adobe software suites, as well as Blender and Cinema 4D.

On Twine, you'll find talented professional 2D and 3D animators with a wide variety of experience in a range of industries and mediums. So whether you are developing a professional explainer video or an epic battle in space, you can find animators to bring your concept to life on Twine.
