Animators breathe life into inanimate objects. Actually, animation is the illusion of life accomplished through the use of controlled movement over time. Animators observe, analyze, and interpret the motions of living creatures and natural forces; and with that knowledge, bring life and character into their animation. At one time, the animation industry consisted of only television and film production, however, animation has now spread into virtually every form of visual communication.
