* You don’t need programming skills to make a movie.
* We don’t know what sort of movie you want to make.
* We don’t know what programming skills you already have, and so we cant advise on complicated programming tasks

Programs:
* Any 3D modelling / animation package.
* Any 2D image editing tool.
* Any video editing tool.
(The free alternative: Blender, Gimp)
(The commercial alternative: 3DS Max/Maya/Cinema 4D/Bryce, Photoshop, Adobe Premiere)

Skills:

* Aesthetics.
* Creativity.
* Patience.

@geon

Skills:
* Mastering your tools of choise.
* Aesthetics.
* Creativity.
* Patience.

Just to emphasize what geon said, you will need quite some time to get going if you have no 3D experience. Artists spend years perfecting their craft so don’t get discouraged and persist.

I would recommend 3Dbuzz.com if you are just getting started out. They have *free* videos that can get you up and running in good time and very active forums.

Good luck,
Nep
