Seeing the prospects of this field a large number of youth decides to enroll in this field for a good career. Everybody has creative instincts; they just need to be encouraged, nurtured and taught. Agreed that ‘creativity’ is nature’s gift, some are more gifted others, but it is hard to believe that an average individual does not have any creative streak whatsoever. It is more likely that it may not have yet been realized and/or recognized. Animation is a craft practiced by skilled people, and skills as we know can be acquired.

Major movie studios from the US and the UK often outsource VFX work to India (and other countries like New Zealand and Canada) to save on labor costs. A big reason for the outflow of work to India is that language barriers are non-existent as English is the primary language of higher education and professional communication here. Earlier, Indian studios would only be entrusted to create visual effects for secondary shots but now it has now become fairly common for them to receive the entire visual effects work for a film.
