    Notably, the Indian animation, visual effects (commonly abbreviated as VFX) and gaming industries have grown and evolved over the last two decades.

    With more and more filmmakers and TV producers going in for technology-driven products such as VFX and animation in a big way to woo Gen X viewers, there is a growing demand for skilled professionals in the sector.

    Indian Companies in the gaming industry have also evolved from being outsourcing companies for western game studios to being pioneers in designing and developing games.

    Going forward, the AVGC sector is expected to have a greater impact on the society – fostering creativity at a grassroots level and being a medium to communicate Indian values to the next generation, apart from generating employment for many.

    National Animation Centre – NCoE AVGC has been envisioned to address this skill requirement by imparting quality education and short programmes in the field. It aims at creating a world class talent pool in India to cater to the Indian as well as global entertainment industry.
