Animation……and the art of living!
Yes, it has come to that. See in any direction, at any time anywhere in the world and the one thing which becomes increasingly clear is that the future of communication, entertainment and information is animation.
There would be a time in the foreseeable future where movies would not require any established stars.
For those of you who want to join this established and upcoming field, the one qualification most sought after would be the B.Sc. Animation. If you are from the south of India, B.Sc. animation from Bharathiar University in the city of Coimbatore would be ideal.
Named after the famed Tamil poet and Freedom Fighter Subramania Bharathiar, the institution was established in February 1982. Located at the foothills of the western ghats which surrounds it from three sides, Coimbatore is quite a beautiful place to be. With average temperatures in the range of 30-34 degrees celcius, it is pleasant through-out the year. In terms of industries here, it is best known for textiles, light engineering, IT&BPO and livestock. IT & BPO now have an off-shoot which seems to be surpassing them with each passing day, Animation.
The Bharathiar University has 104 affiliated institutions (80 arts and science colleges, 29 colleges of education, eight management institutions, one Air Force administration college and one college of physical education) of which the B.Sc. Animation holds an important place.
