What makes a good animation video?

Normally, people will say that it has to have state of the art graphics similar to the Final Fantasy games...  and any of the current video games in general...  but the regular video maker doesn't have access to the powerful machines used to create those videos...

You can create a nice animation video with regular stick figures...

Look at this video by Ryan Higa...  I know...  I like his stuff, ok?




Anyways, he has chosen a very catchy song for the background music...  and precisely timed the animation to the music...  the animation is pretty smooth and fast, kinda flowing...  and he throws in some live pictures here and there for a funny effect...

The topic is a bit morbid, but it's funny...

Study this video and maybe you can create one that will become as popular...

Check out my article on how to promote yourself...

Good luck...

  2. You can create animation using basic tools like Paint and possibly movie maker.

    Basically, animation is just a sequence of pictures, each varying slightly... when you move through the pictures quickly, it will show movement...

    It takes a lot of work... the more basic the software, the more work you will need to invest to create your animation. The more advance software can help with the transitions...
