    I've noticed a lot of new people from India.

    Can anybody comment on the state of the 3D industry there?
    How much is growing, what they are working on, how things are, etc?

    It'll be interesting to know

    Javier

    hi javier,

    i would like to say things are kinda okay here in terms of work and all, still animation industry in not that off an organised sector, a many studios have closed down there doors in wake of recent slowDown.

    some big studio are present in here like R&H and dreamworks(hope u can move here with ur current employee.. ;-)..)

    overall except for few studios there is not much ground breaking stuff going on.. most of them does something for some one out there in western world..

    lots of develoment in 3d for Bollywood movies are taking place...

    lets see if anybody else can contribute more..

    also indian studios has one very weak drawback.. thats there technical know how.. many studios still goes for folder structure over centralized server for all there pipeline related stuff..

    studios spend very little to equip themselves with technical knowledge...

    thats for now..

    i may sound little pessimistic.. but thats just my viewPoint..

    i agree with underearth..
    in india not much studios are working as they should do
    most of the studios want a single man to do all the 3d job and manytimes 2d also.
    there is not a suitable environment for a fresher.
    i am from delhi and i am only telling about the state here.

    interesting..

    I would have thought that with so many talented people coming out from India that the industry would be booming there.

    Hopefully it'll pick up soon then!

    hey i just came across this post now.Its been a year since the last comment and yet there's no improvement here in India.

    Although i agree with underearth, he hasn't mentioned what i believe is the root cause - animation training. There are a zillion animation training institutes that have mushroomed in India, all propagating a false image that India's animation industry is booming. They plant false stories in the media and as a result there's an ever increasing number of animation students.You see, in a place like India with a population of more than a billion, any course that doesn't require the student to be a graduate or even literate, is a hit. The institutes also provide substandard training.

    As a result the industry's crawling with freshers, and the supply has far exceeded the demand. As a result, there is always somebody who'll do your job for a lesser pay and the studios take advantage of that.The starting salary for a fresher is around 120 dollars per month now. Creativity and originality are not given any importance here, they just need someone to move the vertices and do manual labor. Most of the preproduction work's done outside India.

    Well I can rant for hours about the state of the animation industry here Hope it will all fall into place soon..
