The future of 2D animation


– [Narrator] We’re seeing less
and less 2D animated films and people ask me if I
think it’ll make a comeback. The simple answer is, probably not. (upbeat music) The reason 2D animation
in the film industry has been in decline is that people have just gotten used
to such high quality, complex rendering from
the films they watch it’s just hard to go back. It’s a hard task convincing people to spend money to go see a movie
that is not the latest word in CGI technology and
technology never goes back. While you can make a point
that 3D isn’t better than 2D, it’s still capable of
showing more detailed, complex or realistic visuals than 2D can and that’s what people want. They vote with their wallets. 3D animated films make a ton of money, almost regardless of quality,
while great non-3D films like Kubo and the Two
Strings or Treasure Planet flop in the box office and
that’s what it’s really about. Box office numbers. It’s not like the film
industry decided that 3D is a better animation method,
it just sells more tickets and makes them a greater
return on their investments. So that sounds like a bit of a downer. Is it the end for 2D? No, not at all. You might ask yourself, should I even bother
learning 2D animation? And my answer is yes, there is still plenty of
work for 2D animators. It’s just less in films and more in the huge market of mobile gaming, commercials or TV series. Both for kids and adults. They all still use a ton of 2D animation and don’t seem to be slowing down. The great thing about our time is that everything is getting niched down. And many more indie production come about and more and more segmented
creations are being made. All the streaming services produce their own
animated shows these days. A lot of them are for adults. And YouTube is filled
with independent creators, some of them making a great
living doing what they love and they are mostly 2D animators. So I think that’s where
the future of 2D lies, in the hands of independent creators and less in Hollywood blockbusters. And here’s the twist, we’re actually going to see a lot more 2D animation than ever before. Because animation got so
much cheaper to produce and the power is now
distributed between all of us instead of being held in the
hands of a few gatekeepers, more and more artists and small studios can make their own 2D
movies, shorts and series. This is the best time to
be around for animators and all artists really. No one is stopping you from making your own thing
and showing it to the world. Personally, I’m more excited than ever. Thanks for watching. If you wanna get into 2D animation we offer some of the best 2D
animation courses out there. For all the software indie creators use like Animate CC, Toon Boom and TVPaint. The links are in the description.
