First of all, I'm a story teller, not a film maker. But if I wanted to tell a story, this story I had to learn a thing or two. Luckily I love learning and I love research. I love experimenting.
So, I headed over to google and asked the question "HOW TO ANIMATE", and oh dear, oh dear the results!
Taken from Wiki --> Animation is a method in which figures are manipulated to appear as moving images. In traditional animation, images are drawn or painted by hand... Today, most animations are made with computer-generated imagery (CGI). Computer animation can be very detailed 3D animation, while 2D computer animation can be used for stylistic reasons, low bandwidth or faster real-time renderings. Other common animation methods apply a stop motion technique to two and three-dimensional objects like paper cut-outs, puppets or clay figures.
Right. This paints a pretty clear picture of why I can't do it. Or does it? I still can't draw and I still have no patience to learn and draw the entire thing by hand. Also, in the age of technology...
Continuing the research, there are a lot of softwares suitable for the task. However, I needed something to do the drawing for me, something to allow me to create custom characters and their environment.
I went through quite a few, experimented with all of them, but none seemed to be the one. Until I found Unity and its plethora of addons and assets.
Time taken to research the subject of animation (basic) - about 4 weeks.
