Multimedia Artists and Animators

Advancement Prospects

Artists and animators can advance into positions such as lead artist and lead animator. Their responsibilities can include overseeing the work of a team on a project, going over the artwork of individual members, and keeping the team on their time line. Art directors and animation directors have even more management responsibilities. They may oversee the work of several teams, assign game projects to teams, plan the timeline for a game's development, keep an eye on the budget, and do other administrative tasks. Not all artists and animators want to move into such a position because directors' responsibilities remove them from the hands-on creative process. These artists and animators may choose to advance by continuously upgrading their skills and working in areas of art that they haven't previously tried. With their hard work and broad experience, they can gain a reputation in the industry for the quality and variety of their artwork and become sought-after artists.
