10 Second Tip: Do Animation


Animator Island’s 10 Second Tips offer short and sweet bits of wisdom that won’t take you all day to read. Today we talk about doing more animation.

We’re fortunate to live in a time when near infinite information is at our finger tips. We’re also very UNfortunate to live in such a time. Don’t get so caught up in learning about doing animation that you forget to DO animation. Let the time you spend animating far outweigh the time you spend studying techniques and methods. The best way to become better at doing animation is TO DO ANIMATION.

Now get out there and ANIMATE. Right now. Don’t let another minute go by.

PS. Of course stop back next week for more great tips and tricks, too. It’s a balance; you need both. ๐Ÿ™‚

Animation sure is great stuff! It’s useful to have animated videos in marketing these days. You can do that by hiring a team expert in animated video production, those surely equipped with experience in web animation service.

To be honest, I procrastinate as to why I am not able to do proper animation. It is about hit and trials. You may not get the best result at one go but doing it over and over again makes the trick.
