Were you blown by the 3D graphics of the latest Shrek movie or The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Trader? How about the immersive experience provided by Batman: Ark ham Asylum? Why is a fence- sitter when you can be part of the action? These thoughts were topmost on the impressionable minds of hundreds of young people last month at the Edu-Fair 2011 organized by MAAC (Maya Academy of Advanced Cinematic). And of the 2,000 odd students who attended the event, as many as 172 were interviewed for jobs! It’s an exciting time to be part of the animation industry. According to Nasscom and Ernst and Young, the industry in India is set to grow to $ 1.16 billion by the beginning of next year, with professionals having a way with mobile phone graphics ruling the job market.

Take the gaming industry. Artists and animators bring to life the characters, objects and environment in a game. They also decide on the ambient light, which makes or breaks a game. Their treatment of a character’s moves and emotions brings the game to life. Using their visual skill sets as artists, professionals then build on them with the help of various animation softwares such as Photoshop, Corel Draw, 3ds Max, Maya, Softimage XSI, Blender, Houdini, Mood and Brush.
