More and more great animated shorts are raking up considerable recognition on Youtube, Vimeo, and sites like Short of the Week, some of which were created by teams of two or even one dedicated and talented individual. It isn’t a surprise that the idea of a career in 3D animation is crossing a lot of minds these day—it may have even crossed yours!

If you’re planning to create an animated short by yourself, you’ll need to know what goes into it.
