An animator is an artist who creates animated characters for television or movies. The first step of their creative process is to make drawings that will be later entered to a computer program to create a sequence of them, giving the sensation that they are moving.

To become an animator in any of these areas, it is necessary to have artistic education. A degree in animation or media arts in your Animator Resume sample is the minimum requirement to get a job.

The based salary for an animator is of $35 000 per year, however it will increase up to $80 or sometimes $100 thousand per year.
