Expert View

Kireet KhuranaAnimation institutes have done their job of creating a critical mass of animators in this country, a huge workforce that is skilled (not necessarily “thinking animators” or creative). at served India as the back office for outsourcing jobs in animation. However, moving ahead we have to create more “thinking animators” and some entrepreneurs and many storytellers so that we can tell our own stories competently from script to screen. (…) Students need to focus on art, drawing, design, drama, theatre, storytelling and writing a lot more than computers and just learning software and will really help them achieve a great command over the medium.

— Kireet Khurana, Indian animation filmmaker
