Future Prospects of Animation in India


The Indian Animation industry has been facing a lot of problems in the past. Some of the major hurdles for this industry are the skilled work force and efficient production pipeline. There is a huge scope of improvement in this field. We can achieve this by improving ourselves. Therefore the journey of the young talents in this field should focus on the mentioned areas to attain bigger and better heights in this field of study.

The introduction of some of the technologies led to the conclusion that creativity doesn’t exist any longer in the field of animation. But that is a wrong interpretation. It is a fact that the implementation of the modern technologies in this field has simplified the animation process but these technologies cannot think and act creatively as humans do.  One of the most critical skills of an animator is creativity and it cannot be replaced with any advanced technologies. But with the advent of the latest technologies, the animators can easily overcome the limitations in creativity.
