The Modern day flash animator is expected to be proficient in a number of areas that were formerly left to multiple departments. Number of department eliminated by your modern day Tv flash
1.Layout/ Character Posing....who needs good posing? we have motion tweens!!!
2.Exposure Sheet.....rough timing suggested by an experienced director, now done by any student who can operate flash.
3.Key animation....force a bad flash build into a rushed board pose and call it posed
4.Animation Assisting....one button. CREATE TWEEN.
5.Clean Up.....like the dinosaurs, replaced by vectors
6.Ink and Paint...now considered animation.
7. Camera...again compositing is a job that a flash monkey is great at.
8.Effects.....well your great at 1-7, why not just do some effects to.
Now i have learned all these things at different times and been paid varying rates but today i get less for knowing more, classically and technologically and have to teach more. All the while my boss gets a bigger and bigger cut of the cash. All for the little kids sitting at home being brainwashed by an obsolete box that is an opiate to defenseless children.
