It is true that from hand drawn images to computer generated environments, the results of automation on animation are astounding. He also mapped the evolution of animation films.
Mr. Oza concluded the session discussing about the various career prospects in animation. Students understood that the talent requirement in the Indian animation and VFX industry is not people who know how to use a piece of software that will be obsolete in a few years anyway – but people who understand story, character, camera, editing, and have the artistic skills to bring their visions to life. It was a great learning experience for all.
