FILMMAKER SECRETS: 20 Must-Have Music, Media, Animation Tools

I recently gave a lecture at Buffalo State about the production process involved with my animated film Libertaria: The Virtual Opera. As I chatted on about software tools, social media sites, and Kickstarter, I realized that it was time to compile a list for musicians, animators, and other media artist. So here it is, 20 must-have tools for media, music, and animation, in no particular order. 

I used each of these tools and sites for the production of Libertaria, which took over two and a half years. Lots of work, but practically impossiblewithout these tools. Most are affordable or free, which is always great for those on a budget!

Easy-to-Use animation software. Has several packages, plus free trial to test it out. Libertaria was created entirely using this software.
