Frameboxx Animation | Visual effect takes yet another giant leap in the Animation Industry
Mumbai,2008: Identifying the need for new, skilled talent in the Indian Animation Industry, Frameboxx Animation | Visual effects has announced Scholarship Schemes to support and encourage students with a keen interest in the field of animation.
According to a recent NASSCOM Study, the size of the Indian animation market was estimated at USD 285 million in 2005 & is expected to witness an increase to USD 950 million by 2009. Another key trend being witnessed is the outsourcing of animation content to Asia. India already offers a significant cost advantage in animation and game development, as compared to other outsourcing destinations such as Taiwan and South Korea.
