Directors have artistic control over the entire process of making a 3D animated film. They project manager the adaptation, style and cutting. They're the ones who give a film its artistic vision.

Main goals

An animated film director's job changes depending on the production phase:
  • Pre-production: in this phase, the director oversees the storyline. They have to decided on the scenes, the pacing, and the staging so a storyboard can be established. They also hire the crews.
  • Production: Then they supervise the production crews, articulate their vision for the film, and highlight their artistic choices.
  • Post-production: They oversee the final production phases of the film to make sure the project matches their vision.

Required qualifications

  • Be organised
  • Be disciplined
  • Persevere
  • Be creative
  • Have a good eye
