Animated Content has its origin in the Latin “Anima” and whose meaning is “Soul”. Therefore animate consists of giving soul to a character or an object so that it seems that it comes to life, thinks and acts by itself. In short, a 3d, 2d, stop motion, etc. animator (no matter the technique) must have the ability to bring life.
Animate or give soul to a character is a work of pure interpretation or acting, so it has much more to do with an artistic process than a mechanical one. The observation of living beings and how the elements that surround us work is what allows animators to give more credibility to their animations.
