Course Information

Multimedia designers and animators — artists who create animation for video games and other media — are in demand. Create special effects, animation, or other visual images using video, computers, film or other electronic media for use in computer games, movies, music videos and commercials. These artists will often work with a team of animators and artists to create a game or visual effect.

An associate degree is a first step toward a career in video game design and animation, and further study with a bachelor’s degree will broaden opportunities. Jackson College offers an associate degree in 3D design and animation, which combines traditional hands-on skills with an appreciation for the digital realm. Those interested in this career should have or understand some traditional artistic hand skills, such as understanding light, figure drawing and perspective drawing, combined with skill in today’s computer animation programs in texturing and modeling.

Earnings of animators average about $52,100 in Michigan. Earnings may range from $30,000 to $90,000. Employment of multimedia artists and animators is projected to grow 6 percent through 2022. Many animators are self-employed.
