Game Animator Job Description

A game animator is someone who is in charge of creating the animation in a video game.

Animation is the process of drawing images, usually in sequential order, that are intended to represent the action or movement of an object, people or animals, or inanimate objects.

The term is most often used for computer-generated animation in video games, although it is also used in interactive media, such as animated advertising or music videos.
