Did you think animation was only about creating cartoon films? Think again!

Video: Vaibhav More, E. Suresh, Prashant Shahane, along with experts from Pipsqueak Films, Krayons Pictures
& Vensat, discuss job prospects in Animation & VFX

If you love watching new movies, enjoy interesting design or art, and want to make a career in an exciting, creative field, then it is time to think beyond animation.

Animation movies are just a tiny part of what you as a creative guy can do!

The new avenues where today's animators, graphics & VFX artists work, include:

  • TV channels - including shows, serials, news
  • Production houses/ movie studios
  • New-age advertising: TV & print ads, viral videos
  • Comics for brands/ companies/ Bollywood movies
  • Game studios
  • Web 3.0 websites/ portals
  • Newspapers & magazines

...and lots & lots more

Boring office jobs are not the right choice for creative people. Companies are willing to pay a good salary to great designers/ animators/ artists.

Which is why, working in animation or VFX or gaming or web designing can open exciting career paths for you, in India as well as around the world. In India alone, the current size of the industry is approx US $247 million* with 15-20% growth per annum. So imagine the sheer number of jobs it will create for people like you!

It's all about advertising!

Once upon a time, animation was limited only to conventional cartoons & animated films but now with new technology, big companies and innovations, big brands are going for VFX & animation-based ads.

Recent examples of such ads include:

~ Evian's Roller Skating Babies
~ Alpenliebe ads where Kajol has some fun with the crocodile
~ Fanta ads every summer
~ 7UP ads which feature a dancing penguin along with actor
   Sharman Joshi

Apart from ads, there are so many viral videos which are used for brand promotions or just for a bit of fun with the audience! These videos too use animation & VFX effects.

Think of the last funny baby video you saw, or the bollywood spoofs that are so popular on the Internet - yes, all those were created using animation/ VFX!

Bottom-line: Today, animation/ VFX is used in every single advertisement.

TV ads

Movie careers available

Simply put, VFX is about adding special effects to films, ads, TV shows etc.

Today, every single movie or TV show uses VFX
to make it much more interesting, to give it that 'special' feel which is just not possible through live shooting. This way, VFX & animation enhance the quality of each scene.

This means that every film needs to hire an animation and/ or VFX studio to do the special effects for them. These studios employ creative & well-trained people to do this work. Which is why, there are huge career opportunities for creative people in production houses & studios.

Film Animation

Work wonders with the web

Think of the last time you booked a flight or train ticket, or the last movie that you watched. Chances are you did it on the Internet. And after watching the movie, you probably even posted your review of the film on Facebook!

These days, websites are all about sharing and convenience, through social networking portals, online shopping portals, online advertising, videos & other content sharing, emails...everything is online. Any help you need you Google it, don't you?

But did you know that, apart from every single website you have ever visited, each and every search engine too is developed by web designers & developers? Can you imagine your life without the Internet? The whole world is online & connected. Everybody - including big companies & brands - uses the Internet to reach more & more people.

Which explains why the latest websites are so cutting-edge and cool! They are more colourful, they load faster, they showcase everything beautifully by using smart design elements, jQuery, HTML5, CSS, and more.

Web Designing
Print Media

Get gaming, now!

Everyone loves games! New-age gadgets-playstations, smart phones, tablets etc. make it so much fun to play games such as Angry Birds, Farmville, Temple run, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Max Payne & more.

These game designs are visualised & created by graphic designers. The interesting characters, backgrounds, animations etc. you see are designed by them.

The gaming industry will grow at 32% per year to touch 38 billion rupees by 2015*. Again, lots & lots of fun jobs to be had!
