Animation is a art of moving images. Very popular and much in demand in West and now getting popularity in mainstream Indian visual market. As mentioned Animation entered in West in early 90s and to provide quality animators and artist various institutes in west started with good number of animation courses list.
The objective of these animation courses is to groom an artist for this visual medium and and to begin with you can opt basic course from the published animation courses list of the institute. We would like to recommend you that you must have good hand in drawing to be a good animator. Many people are interested in 3D animation and they give excuse that doing 3d animation has nothing to do with art and drawing. That’s not the fact, remember whether you are selected 2d animation or 3d animation from the animation courses list of any institute you must clear your drawing fundamentals. I surprise when I see the institutes guaranteeing about animation career and do not have any space for drawing and sketching in their animation courses list.
When I took the charge of P A Inamdar College of Visual Effects Design and Art college as a principal I made a point that our programmes must have the essential drawing and sketching skills closely connected with the First year of B.Sc. Media graphics and animation degree programme. However It is not necessary that you can enter into animation only through B.Sc. animation. Please refer the below mentioned animation courses list of our college which gives you a fair idea about various animation courses and their entry level.
