A WEEK IN THE LIFE

~90% of your time will be animating on projects. Occasionally helping with styles or animatics.

~5% of your time will be used to plan and communicate about projects. It’s the time you’ll have to take feedback, assess progress, and make sure you and your team are all on the same page.

~5% of your time will be used up in other things like company meetings, training initiatives and research. It’s all the “other” stuff that keeps everything and everyone working at their best.
