Short Animated Films
I have always been interested in making short story animated films. Watching some brilliant animations at http://shortanimatedfilms.blogspot.com/2011/12/last-fall.html is really inspiring for whoever is in this field. You can see the power of multimedia how fantastically combines all the tiny movements and details all in one short glance. From my own experiences, creating animation takes a lot of creativity, practices, and patience. I feel fortunate for being introduced to some degree with animation process during my studies at CSUEB, but I would love to enhance this skill to accomplish more.
Creating animations always consumes time to a really high level. Some of the Disney animations took the production team years of hard work and creativity. Rendering is another issue that requires a good amount of time. I am most interested in After Effects animations since you can play with the graphics and text at the same time. However, After Effects rendering consumes a long period of time. So if you ever want to make an animation with After Effects please be ready and manage your time accordingly.
