Everyone knows about Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Tom & Jerry and
Stuart Little -- a few of the many animated characters that always
delight and entertain us. But do you know how these characters were
born and how it is possible to create wonders with the art of
drawing? The answer is animation -- one of the fastest growing and
most in-demand industry in the world. Multimedia and Animation are
among the major hunted jobs of the 21st century. Multimedia, alias
multiple media, as the name suggests, is an enormous field that uses
more than one medium of communication. It is an art that merges text,
images, graphics, animation, audio and video to create virtual magic.
Animation is only a component of multimedia.

Animation, which derived its name from the Latin word anima meaning
soul, can be defined as the art of breathing life to a character. A
blend of entertainment industry and technology, it is concerned with
design, drawing, layout and production of graphically rich and
attractive multimedia clips. In other words, animation is about
making movies, games or cartoons by moving the drawings or models of
animals or people with the help of computers or other electronic
means. Time and space play a critical role in animation.


Training is the most essential and important aspect for the creation
of a skilled professional in the field of animation. To become an
animator, one doesn�t require any specific academic qualification.
Those with a basic sketching skills and a passion for animation can
enter this field.

For having better job prospects, it is advisable that one have a
degree or diploma in animation. Any graduate, preferably arts
graduates, can apply for Post Graduation in animation. Besides these
graduate and post graduate courses, there are several professional
courses that focus on various styles and techniques.

These courses, that is, courses in Traditional animation, Stop-motion
animation, Rotoscoping, Computer generated 3D and 2D animation, Clay-
mation, Photoshop, Human anatomy, Drawing, etc help one specialise in
a particular area. One should also have a basic knowledge in computer


A strong portfolio of work is an essential part of landing a job in
computer animation and becoming an animator. Numerous job
opportunities are available in India as well as abroad in the
exciting field of animation. It opens the door to film industries
such as Hollywood, which is the world of special effects and imagery
for films. Specialised computer knowledge and skills are essential
for various jobs in the field of animation. It is a booming industry
with wide job openings and one can work on full length animation
movies or any other related fields like television, advertising
industry etc. An animated feature film, which offers considerable
employment prospects, is a combined talented effort of a wide variety
of artists. A typical animation film requires around 500 animators.
Some of the jobs offered in the industry are:

o Content developer

have a solid understanding of anatomy, form and volume

separate drawings that define a sequence

in medical, legal and insurance companies for their presentations and
