Computer Animator

Qualifications

You don't need a raft of academic degrees to become a computer animator. If you have a knack for design and computers and art, and you have a portfolio with good stuff, you'll have a shot at finding a job.

But, if you want the patina of professionalism, you might want to spend the time and money to get a bachelor's or graduate degree in graphic design, with a concentration in computer skills. Credentials like these and a portfolio will help you get your foot in the professional door.
