VIJAYAWADA: Just like in software and IT, the world's major companies in animation and visual arts are outsourcing their work to other countries like Singapore and India. This explains why there is a vast potential for local artists and those with creative abilities to do well in this field.

Stating this at a press conference on Friday, Paladugu Mahesh, director of the Element School of Visual Arts and Animation, said that there were plenty of job opportunities in the field of animation and visual arts and three of their students have already found jobs in the best companies based out of Mumbai and Hyderabad. Some of the internationally renowned animation companies were looking towards India to make use of the talent available here and also to get work done at lesser cost.

Mr. Mahesh said that for the 3D-based films being produced these days, a large number of animation and visual arts experts were needed to be employed and this was why there would be a huge potential for jobs.

The Element School was in touch with some leading companies having presence in India for ensuring campus placements for their students.

Joint Collector Gaurav Uppal would be the chief guest for the graduation ceremony of the first batch of students of the institute, which would be held at K.J. Gupta Kalyana mandapam, Municipal Employees Colony at 6 p.m. on Saturday. Income Tax Commissioner K. Ajay Kumar would be the guest of honour. Krishi Krishna CEO Velaga Joshi and Efftronics managing director D. Ramakrishna would be special invitees.

Mr. Mahesh said that the Element School was giving courses in high-end 3D programme, Maya, visual effects and digital character animation with the duration of one year and also 14 months. At the end of the programmes, the students would be made to produce short films. All the 38 students would present their films at the graduation ceremony.
