New to animation - What do I need?

I'd like to get into animation but I'm not sure if I have the right tools for the job. I'm looking to create head and shoulder videos (not live). I can't use the Mojo software as I don't own an iphone.

I'm also trying to avoid doing this one keyframe at a time because it could take days! (I think I have an Adobe account, so I could make ue of mixamo, but I think they only do full body animations.)

Ideally I'm looking to utilize my phone's camera [Android] (or a webcam at a push) for MoCap. I have anilip for importing my sound files and creating visemes, but not much for actual animation, blinking etc. Can I get away without using blender for bone rigging? I saw a few videos on "vtubing" today, which is sort of what I'm aiming to do, but I don't need to stream it live (I don't think my old PC could handle live streaming anyway!)

Any helpful tips or links gratefully appeciated.
Thank you!
