Stories have been implanted in you thousands of times since your mother took you on her knee. After all, a well-crafted story can even transform a seemingly hopeless situation into an unexpected triumph. Now we are heading towards a future where visual storytelling is the only way forward. And the challenge is people won’t bother having a second look if your visual story doesn’t make a mental impact.
Instead of narrating the story verbally, use animations that can give life to your storytelling. And What's the role of an Animator, VFX Artist as a Storyteller?
