Make your ideas come true by knowing how people can help.
You are reading this because you either have an idea for a short film or full-length animation project for yourself, or…
Because you are just curious and wanted to know what was all that hype of “Direct and Produce Animation”. Well, give me a couple of seconds to see if I can get you more curious.
Everyone has ideas. Right? Well, that's the good part. The bad part is that most of those ideas live only inside the mind of the holder. Never making it to born into reality.
Why? Because people prefer to scratch their heads or their bellies because it feels good.
Think about it, most don't know that they can produce them without sitting on a computer or knowing anything about animation. Yes. That's a fact. There are successful producers running big studios who don't know how to draw or animate and yet, they materialize ideas because they know how the different departments work. They know how to guide people.
So, I ask you…
What does it take to get your idea realized? To have it come true? And how can you do it in less time?
Animation is a very long process that can be shortened if you know a little weird secret:
People want to help.
But the big question is: Do you know how they can help?
What If one of your friends, loves to work with sound and likes your project? How can he help?
And artists? Or photographers? I bet you know a photographer, and until now, you didn't know a photographer could help with animation. How? Well, by applying composition principles of photography to your shots and a bunch of cinematography concepts. That photographer can make your animation look awesome.
When you have an idea for a project and you know how to animate, you can do what most people do.
Go SOLO mode. YEAH! RIGHT ON!
I don't know if it's to show off all their abilities and say: I did it all by myself! Or if they just didn't know that people around them wanted to help, but neither any of them knew it could be done faster.
Imagine you have this idea for a story, or even a quick joke or gag that you want to transform into animation, into a living and breathing thing that could go viral on the internet.
You say to yourself: “Hey, this joke could be an awesome 30 second short film and could make many people laugh”. Ha! Making people laugh is one of the most generous things anyone can do for someone else. But we are not talking about comedy, we are talking about that idea of the joke and the possibility of creating an animation out of it.
If you don't know how to use a computer or don't know how to walk and talk, you will definitely think deep inside you: “Oh man… I wish I could walk and talk so I could learn how to use a computer to then make this animation”.
Well, good news, I bet you can use a computer and can walk and talk (or at least you know how to communicate.)
Knowing how to communicate and how each department works in an animation feature film production, is what can make this Idea a reality.
Well, then I have something to tell you…
- Being an animator
- Knowing how to direct and produce your projects
- And how to find and work with people who is waiting for a chance to help…
Can make your life easier. You could cut in half the time it takes to finish on your own.
And not only that… but you also get THE BEST VERSION OF YOUR STORY.
And that, my friend… it's priceless.
