Ashish Kulkarni talking about the future of work in the animation industry said, “You are into the screen era today. And because you are into the screen era, you need to constantly be having good content on it. And that’s why you are going to have a very sustainable lifestyle, revenue stream and job”.
“In India we have so many studios opening up”, said Bhavya Tayal while speaking about the opportunities in the gaming industry.
“Gaming is probably the last entering contestant in this already established race of entertainment but it is certainly one of the fastest growing fields. So anybody who even tries to get into it will definitely see a lot of areas to explore, be it development, designing, QA, audio or video sections. Possibilities are limitless”, he said.
Ashish Kulkarni gave a detailed insight about the statistics as well. He said, “Right now we have 1,56,000 direct employees in the studios of animation and close to a lakh indirect employees in India. And we anticipate in 2030, hard core studios of animation having 10 lakh+ employees and 10 lakh+ people coming into the gaming industry. That’s the projection by the industry right now. We have just published this projection and we are working on setting the UGC guideline for animation, gaming, VFX out of the taskforce that has been formed by the Govt of India”.
