I am not so familiar animating things, PLUS I do not know how to add sound.
I don't know any programs that help with the process also.
Thanks.

A post from another forum:
- They do use computers for a lot... like, they don't actually use paint for cels anymore. :B
But the computer can't draw in-between frames or anything, so artists do all that.

Usually, the process goes something like this:
A lead artist will draw every major pose, and that's called a key-frame. Then lower ranking artists will draw all the frames in between the key poses, (on special animation paper which is hardier than tracing paper) to make things move smoothly, using a light table so they can see through many frames at once. I think most places still do that on paper rather than computer, and mark where the colors and shading are supposed to be with colored pencil.

Then the frames get shot with an animation camera, (just an expensive camera mounted so it faces down) and inked (I think.. maybe they get inked by hand though. Actually I'm not sure what the typical inking process/s is/are for anime) and painted digitally, which doesn't really take that long if the line art is very clean.


Another post from another forum:
- Generally, animations in generally are drawn in 5-10 second chunks to get the main ideas down and done with overall. After that, they higher tons of people to do all the filler pages (basically the pages between the 5-10 seconds). Depending on how you want something to move also depends on the number of pages (fewer pages faster movement, more pages less movement but more details).

There were shortcuts too like having the character stand perfectly still or move around and then have a separate layer of animation with only the mouth moving. This is why in certain older anime's the chin line doesn't EVER move (cause in real life we move our lower jaw and all). A good example, although not anime, are the ooold cartoons like The Flintstone's where when they walked across a room, nothing moved except there legs/feet (repeated frames) and the background (which if you look closely, it repeats).

It's true much of it is now on the computer, but that's mostly to add in special affects and to help make the animation much smoother... and to have cool explosions that just aren't as cool hand drawn ^_^;;

That's my basic knowledge of it.


Another posts from another forum:
- "in a chinese sweatshop"
- "I've always imagined that unicorns shit on paper and they magically turn into animes."


Wow. That's so cool.

Asking for prices?

A simple info:
