And I kind of want to start understanding the animation world. I guess my first question is if I wanted to make a short animation piece what are the main skill sets I need to hire?
Example, if I wanted to pitch a comic, I need an artist, inker, colorist, letterer, and possibly an editor. Sometimes you can find an artist that can do all of them (very rare) or maybe he can do at least 1-2.
In the film, for a short film, you can be so bare that you only need your actor, director/cameraman/editor, and maybe a producer.
What are the basic needs of animation?
