‘Animation industry lacks creativity’

The Indian animation industries leave no room for animation film-making and creativity as most of the students are only trained in software skills, necessary to get jobs in firms that handle work outsourced from foreign countries, one of India’s senior-most animators has said on Wednesday.
Professor IS Mathur, founder of National Institute of Design’s animation programme back in the mid-1960s, said, “This is a part of a shift from value-based education to need-based education”, gripping the country’s education sector, terming it “intellectual colonization.”
Mathur was delivering a lecture titled “History of Animation Education at NID and beyond” in the first day of NID’s biennial International Animation Festival, Chitrakatha 2011, on Wednesday.
