Do you need to animate scenery? Or are you talking Video animations, Stop motion, or do you mean people have told you you need to be more animated? I've often found that Outsiders consider Technicians un-animated, Or perhaps re-animated dead people. I feel this is unfair. They usually don't see us in our natural enviroment.
I'm pretty sure re-animation of the dead is against the TOS. Better double check that cause you wouldn't want to get banned by your first post.
If you are talking about animation effects with lighting be sure to post it in the Lighting forum. We don't really have a video forum. So if you are talking about projected animation I would post it in the general forum.
