Don’t worry today we were not talking about IIT. The point is that why this? Why not you join other streams for your career. There were all other fields too except IIT. Yesterday my friend contacted me to take guidance for his career and yeah guys he really shocked me. He told me that he really want to join animation industry but is still confused about it. Don’t know what is the scope in this field ? Even his drawing and sketching is good but don’t know that how is drawing and sketching can be a part of his career because we only know IIT, B-tech, Engineering (for graduation) etc…. Sorry we were not blaming IIT because we all know that if you don’t have caliber then whether you waste your full year nothing could gonna happen, remember the movie “3 Idiots” (Amir Khan) and “Faltu”. So this post is especially dedicated to my friends and for all those youngsters, sketch artists who were still confused about this field.

Now get back to the topic “What really the Animation Industry Is?? “ . Everybody is confused about animation and about this creative field but you don’t know that your daily life, everything is a part of this field. To understand this let us take an example. Today when you wake up in morning, after brushing your teeth’s, bathing, during breakfast and all stuff what you will do?? Now guess……
Hmm don’t know….??? Hey guys it’s simple, the answer is “Newspaper”. Yes its newspaper, before your full day, job etc. you first read newspaper which is the part of print media and yup print media is the part of animation and creative industry. So your life starts with animation. Hey guys, readers everything is a part of animation like you watch television, movies everything including yours home and office architect design, automobile design, the advertisements, books, novels which you read, drawing which every child doo, toys which you play, websites which you surf, Facebook (it’s design) everything is a part of this field.
I think after such long speech you understand my concept. Now below there is a small post about Animation, its uses, scope and career.

What is animation?

Making imaginary character or a product and putting life in it. This word “Animation” is basically made from Greek or Latin words ani (means object or thing) and motion (means movement), in short making objects and things into motion. Like you’ve seen Spiderman, Superman etc in movies and comics they were not real but after watching films we take it as real. So how come they got such powers and all that it’s basically animation (visual effects) . 2D and 3D animation like kung fu panda, Cars, Ben10 tv series all are part of this field.

Use Of Animation

These days animation is used in almost all the industries from automobile , pharmaceutical, medicine, aerospace, civil and architectural, IT companies like Tata, Reliance, Satyam, UTV, Pentasoft, Rhythm & Hues have jumped into the fray. International animation houses like Walt Disney Studios, Paprika Animation Studio, Technicolor labs, SONY are looking at tie-ups with Indian animation companies too.
