Gameplay Animator : What Is It Like?
Build A Rocket Boy Gameplay Animator Director Harvey Newman shares in this brilliant video what the role of gameplay animator implies. From raw animation skills to a logic oriented mindset, the role of gameplay animator will require you not only to be a great animator, but also to be able to build animation systems in order to make your animation playable in a game. As a role I'm currently discovering, this video only confirms what I expected and gets me even more exited. Only, I disagree on one aspect : integration is a lot of fun, even for starters! It also provides a welcomed breath of fresh air outside of animation, when you're tired of working in Maya all day long. Make sur to check out Harvey's exellent Youtube channel, it's all about animation.
