In animation, the word keyframe refers to the defining drawing of a sequence. A sequence of keyframes defines the movement and story the viewer will see, and the position of the keyframes on the film, video, or animation defines the timing of the movement. While the term originates from the days of traditionally drawn animation, “keyframe” is a universal term used in stop motion, 2D animation, visual effects, and 3D animation. Sixty-three animators, modelers, storyboard artists, and visual development artists show defining moments from their student careers that will help guide their first steps into the professional entertainment industry, making these, essentially, their own keyframes.
