Animation industry is booming
The animation industry is huge & growing. Arena fulfills the demand for trained professionals in animation, multimedia, gaming & web designing.
Animation, gaming & web design professionals work on full-length animation movies, create TV commercials, education CDs, games for Internet, mobile, PC or consoles (like PlayStation or Xbox), work in the advertising industry or as web designers in various companies.
The Price Waterhouse Coopers’ report on the Indian Entertainment & Media Industry estimated the Indian animation industry at Rs. 11 billion in 2006. It is forecast to grow at a rate of 22% per year & reach Rs. 29 billion by 2011. The Indian gaming industry was estimated at Rs. 2 billion in 2006 & is forecast to reach Rs. 28.5 billion by 2011 – growing at 68% per year.
Even at these impressive growth forecasts, the Indian animation & gaming industry will account for less than 2% of the worldwide market in 2010, clearly indicating a significantly larger opportunity.
Thousands of jobs
There are about 300 animation companies employing 12,000 people in India. Nearly 3,000 freelancers are working in this industry.
A career in animation means being a part of one of the most ‘happening’ industries of our time. Animation & Internet touch every facet of modern life.

They also get the opportunity to interact with industry professionals & to showcase their work to them.
