As an animator working with technology, it’s important to remember that I’m trying to communicate something above and beyond the technology I’m using: a story. The story can be simple or complex, long or short but without it the user or viewer is less likely to engage. That’s why it’s important to develop a keen sense of observation and empathy. Why do we do the things we do and how do we use technology to communicate that?
