Do you want to create a quality animated movie? Although this may sound difficult, the animation industry is constantly evolving and creating easier and better ways to animate.
Step 1. Imagine what kind of movie you want it to be
Will it be full of action and "violent cartoons" or full of comedy? Brainstorm your characters and develop a plot for your story.
Step 2. You may want to create a storyboard, but if your movie is short, this may not be necessary
Storyboard drawings do not have to be of good quality.
Step 3. Write a script
Make sure to include "everything," especially the dialogue. All the details count.
Step 4. Write character profiles to boost the development of your animated movie stars
Is your character the comedian from the movie or is your character something else?
Step 5. Animate your movie
You should have already decided which animation technique to use at this point. Flip charts are very cheap and fun, but they do have some drawbacks (they have no sound, and the length of the film is limited.)
Step 6. Edit your movie
Decide if there is something you would like to change related to your movie or something you don't like about it. Cut it off if so.
Step 7. Show your movie
- "Show your final product" to your family, friends, teachers, or mentors. Ask them about their constructive criticism. It shouldn't be enough for them to tell you whether or not they liked your movie. They have to tell you why. If they have any suggestions such as how much you could improve your movie, take their ideas seriously and seriously consider making any necessary changes. Make those changes as necessary.
- The "Storyboard Scenes" help to give you an inside look at what you would like to see included in each scene, from what angle you want to "film" your animated character (s).
- Flip charts lack sound and durability.
- Traditional animation is expensive.
- Creating a movie can be stressful and time consuming no matter what method you use.
