Jobs in Animation

It's impossible to forget our cute and martial arts obsessed Panda who taught us that self-belief can help us scale great heights, or the ever-attractive and fascinating world of Narnia! Popular blockbusters like Wall-E, Coraline, Up, are some amazing examples of animation.

For individuals who enjoy making magic, the animation industry offers limitless opportunities.

Animation and Cartooning

People confuse the term "animation" with "cartooning".

Cartooning is all about drawing caricatures of characters with some particular characteristics to make the character conjure a feeling of laughter.

Animation, on the other hand, is the art of bringing inanimate objects to life with the help of computer-based sequencing techniques.

Job Prospects

Because of the boom in the entertainment and gaming industries, job prospects for animators are increasing rapidly. Animation has with time gained a foothold in the movies, television, and advertising industry. Why? Because of the excessive use of special effects. Full-length animation movies are in high demand.

A single animation movie may require as many as 500 animators, which means that there are lots of job opportunities. In addition to serving the entertainment and e-learning industries, the animation is a concrete, lucrative and demanding career.

The Market Watch of the Animation Sector

India has become a new center for the animation business, which was traditionally controlled by the West. India, more than any other Asian country, possesses the capacity and creative energy to generate world-class animations. Despite the fact that the animation business is a relative newcomer to India, it is poised for a time of extraordinary growth. Animations and special effects are in high demand in the television, film, and advertising industries. Furthermore, India, with its rich cultural past and mythology as well as technological know-how, is poised to generate both full-length and short animation films. This growth, however, would not be limited to the animation business, but would also affect the mobile and computer gaming industries.

The demand for the animation sector

Our country has seen an exponential increase in opportunities and earnings for animators, making it one of the most lucrative career options available at this time. Demand for skilled animators has resulted in an increase in job opportunities and increased demand for animation. The demand for animation professionals has exceeded a lot. As per a report, the animation industry requires more than 30,000 professionals every year.

Famous studios such as Walt Disney, Dream Works Entertainment, and Sony Pictures are outsourcing their work to India, so creative people will have no barriers to overcome. Animators are needed in nearly every business these days, including game studios, advertising agencies, IT firms, movie production organizations, and many more.

What is the future of animation in India?

India's film industry is already booming. With the development of e-learning, real classroom teaching is gradually being replaced by computer-based learning in the education and training sectors. E-learning is seen as a benefit, particularly for children, who may learn through interactive media. All of these industries require the services of experienced animation and multimedia professionals to create dynamic and qualified material that will appeal to a potential audience. This is why, in the animation and gaming industries, many Indian firms are shifting their business models from outsourcing to co-production.

The scarcity of competent professionals is a major factor limiting the growth of animation and gaming in India. While both government and business groups have demonstrated a significant interest in leveraging the underutilized resources of the animation and gaming industries in recent years. 

How to Learn Animation?

Animation training is now available in hundreds of private and government institutes throughout India's main cities and towns. 

Courses offered to vary from short-term courses to full-fledged undergraduate and post-graduate courses.

Examples include the National Institute of Design, National Institute of Film and Fine Arts, Kolkata, National Institute of Electronics & Information Technology, Delhi, etc.
