The creative process of making animation is finding problem, doing research, brainstorming, filtering, production and evaluation.

Understand the problem comprehensively. Make notes. Ask questions. Don’t be selfish and make assumptions. Make confirmation. Seek for confirmation.

Do research. Collect and make list of references. Use the best references. You should know when to stop researching and start to work.

In brainstorming process, squeeze out your best ideas. Challenge the initial idea. Ask for opinions and be open for critics. Remember the problem/targets.

How to filter ideas? How to filter the best from the best? Complicated is not always good. Simplicity is not always a sign of laziness.

Production time! Time to animate! Manage time according to your capacity to be able to delivery the work that comply with target, on time.

Evaluation process is to evaluate the result. Find out things that work and which one don’t.
