Animation is a creative discipline that is known for its work of making inanimate objects move. The most common use of this is in film and television. Historically, animation has been created by drawing or painting images by hand onto transparent sheets, which will then be photographed and shown on film. Nowadays, the vast majority of animations are made with computer programs and are all computer generated imagery.
