In this video I cover how to create a storytime channel from A-Z, a step by step process on starting your storytime animation channel today.
This animation tutorial is for fellow aspiring animators to learn how to animate and create their own story time videos like the big YouTube animators TheOdd1sOut, Jaiden Animations, Domics, Swoozie, and so many others (which are really inspiring).
Every animator starts from somewhere. You’ll make mistakes at the beginning but it’s totally OK. As you do more, learn more and fail more you’ll get better and better over time. These are some of the best practices and experiences I’ve had creating my storytime animations.
It’s a little lengthy but I tried covering most aspects of the creation process, hope it’s helpful for you guys.
