Virtual reality in trending in Bollywood as well as Hollywood for creating larger than life pictures. The years have witnessed the increasing presence of VFX in movies, television and advertisement. Indian VFX studios have made their presence felt in the international market and have moved up the value chain to become Centers of excellence in the area of VFX and Animation. But we still are facing some challenges on the domestic front……..


Even though the advertising sector have quickly adopted VFX as a means for creating visual experiences. Bollywood have been sluggish to experiment with this technology mainly due to lack of adequate funds and skills. The only exception was starring Shahrukh Khan which had 3500 VFX shots and was assumed to be most expensive movie ever made in Bollywood. On the other hand Tollywood have quickly adopted to VFX in movies like Baahubali, Robo, Pranayam etc. where mesmerizing effects were created successfully.


India has witnessed a significant growth in the work out sourced from countries abroad and from Hollywood and it continuous to be on rise. Around 40 major VFX studios in India are successfully catering to the demands and need of the domestic and international clients. About 10% of the total animation and VFX outsourcing is done by companies in India.

Hollywood companies gained significant economic advantage by outsourcing to India. But due to lack of artists with advanced VFX skills resulted in demand for high monetary compensation by the competent in the field. India will soon lose its cost competitiveness as compared to its Asian rivals.


Evolution is a natural phenomenon and therefore VFX not being an exception gets upgraded at regular interval with introduction of new techniques and products. To compete with the growing competition major VFX companies are getting their employees equipped by getting them trained and upgraded from time to time. Artist often tend to be unaware of the latest trends and development, therefore to keep their artist upgraded and to be at par with the growing market, companies have started training there employees at regular intervals from reputed institutes. Another major challenges one is facing is lack of skilled professional in the field. Companies are grabbing projects, and have deadlines to meet, but with the amount of skilled professional they have, its becoming difficult for them to complete project on time. Huge lack of skilled people in the field. Thus a great opportunity for someone who wants to choose VFX / Animation as a career.


Government policies play a vital role for the development and growth of any sector in the country. The government of India needs to take steps by providing advanced infrastructure and training facilities. For instance, due to trend of outsourcing animation and VFX work in Hollywood the VFX artists in developed countries have been adversely affected, therefore in order to support the artist on the domestic front, government of Canada are offering tax credits and subsidies to the domestic VFX companies such as Starz Animation Toronto, a Canadian studio, for retaining the artist by creating job opportunities and also for enhancement of studios as centers for innovation. The domestic market has been slow mainly due to lack of skilled professionals and economic constraints.

If you are planning to make a career in VFX don’t think much just join us and learn from experts of the industry to gets hands on practical experience to complete in the league of good vfx artist.

Stop Motion Animation: Another Approach to Animation

The animation paradise has witnessed many changes over the year. It has jumped on heights dramatically, from hand drawn animation to 3D animation. Animation as a career in this competitive era, the demand of technical skills, a good understanding of art and aesthetics and a unique creative is skill is required. These days’ students concentrate on software & technologies to create an animation film. Experimenting with any other medium is rare.

Stop motion animation is one such medium. This is the form of animation created by physically manipulating real world objects and photographing them, one frame at a time, to create the illusion of movement.

Below are the various kinds of Stop motion animation listed out by animation kolkata:

Claymation (Clay Animation)
It’s one unique form of stop motion animation that uses figures made of clay. It involves sculpture characters and background sets out of clay.

Puppet Animation
It is a technique of incorporating the animation of still puppets. Similar to claymation, the characters and sets are already made in full forms instead of being made while the animation is being shot.


Cut Out Animation
Technique of producing animations using flat characters is used in this form. 

This is the most difficult form of stop motion animation. Live actors change their movements in each frame of the animation in this form. They pose while multiple frames are taken and the position changes slightly in each frame.

These are just few examples of stop motion animation.  The medium is just a platform to give your idea a visual presentation.

Latest Techniques used in 2D and 3D Animation

When the first ever five minute film, Steamboat Willie was released by Walt Disney he never thought that his animation based would form the basis of an entire industry, encouraging new styles in 2D & 3D animation.  The industry has grown since then, both in terms of application and importance in a variety of fields such as entertainment, education, medicine etc. The government and the private sector funded several institutes for the development of innovative techniques to bring objects to life on 2d and 3D screens.

It is now possible to create facial animation using the recent advancements in computer technologies. Before this phase the characters’ faces were nothing more than hand down painting sequences of images to create the illusion of movement. Now in the new era the modern research and development of computer graphics has come to a stage where producers can create climatic wonders such as Avatar. Facial animation has made its place and has come a long way. Sparse Stereo Mesh is a creative technique that has made it possible for animation come close to real life. This technique was made to drive facial contour by reading data from customised markers, kept on the face, with the help of camera lens. The three dimensional mesh of facial information is the incoming data which is then processed on the 3D mesh in the application.

Today, a large number of advanced techniques are implemented for character animation. Every production studio from Pixar to Light & Magic are inspired by Skeleton based animation and motion capture advance methods. Skeleton based animation possesses a hierarchal order of the anatomy of the character that involves a ground plane. Which further allows the physics to take over when the character is set into motion.

Motion capture advance is a tool for character animation while working with 2D and 3D space. That further enables artists to realistically capture character motion.

In the animation industry 2D and 3D techniques have come a long way.

Big Animation Studios Versus Indie Production

In the 1980s, the release of blockbuster animations, like who framed Roger Rabbit, Disney, Fox, and Warner Bros came up and they started hiring artists and designers from every corner of the globe. European artists started hiring kids from colleges and some even before graduation. Big and major production houses began to increase the staff numbers, buying properties and paying magnificent salaries. And soon after these artists became hot commodities.

But the glamour is never permanent, soon the things began to feel formulaic and studios fell into trap.  The big studio system lost sight of the story. With the bigger budgets nobody wanted to take a chance with the creative process. In this scenario, independent studios & production houses started making movie and benefited from the audience’s demand for something different.

Now the independent artists are setting up their personal studios in their homes and animators, who used to work for big production houses are now appearing as production heads of their own studios.
Studios started finding cost effective ways of producing their work and began looking overseas by the year 2000. Due to the decrease in staff requirement many artists left out of work. During this period the Troy Story released and made money at the box office and other major studios had realization that collaborating with some of the new, slick CGI studios could be advantageous.

Indies, also known as independent studios started putting up their own films. During the first decade of the millennium, the independent production company rush was the trend that had captured the attention of mainstream audiences across the world.

Indie production companies are now emerging in great numbers due to technological progress that has created an entirely different setup of the animation studio. It is more efficient to set up a studio where all the equipment's of production could comfortably be installed on one workstation. Indeed it seems the crop of indie production companies has grown continuing to have smaller budgets.  

Diversification added to this process further. Considering the vast number of options available today like DVD, video games, commercials, internet, wireless and more, the new emerging consumer arenas like e-learning and ethnic entertainment target markets the scope for indie  production  is growing each day.

No one knows where the story will end. Perhaps this new renaissance of indie productions will give birth to its own list of lessons to be learned and challenges to be faced. But one thing is for sure that it is just the beginning of a new era for the animation paradise.

Elements of effective graphic designs

To create the most beautiful design apart from creative idea one should have a clear understanding about the subject’s fundamentals

There are 10 basic elements of effective graphic designs. They are as follow:


Line is the first and the most basic element. Line plays a different role in drawing ad graphic designs. In drawing line is a stroke and in graphic designs it’s about two connecting points. Lines are benefited in dividing spaces and drawing an eye to the specific spaces.


For both the users and the designers colour plays the role of the most obvious elements of design. It can be used along with other elements like line and shapes etc or it can stand alone as a background. Colour creates the mood f the design and depicts the story of a brand. Every colour has a different story to tell which can further impress by the colour combinations.


Shapes, geographic or organic add interest. Shapes are basically used to emphasize a portion of the page as shape is defined by boundaries like line or colour. Everything used in graphic design is ultimately a shape. Now it’s your creativity to use these shapes in an interactive way.


While designing a page, negative space is most underutilized and misunderstood aspect of designing for the page. The left blank part of a design whether white or some other colour, help to create an overall image. Create spaces using the negative space.
