Animation dream goes sour in city

Hyderabad: Animation companies that had mushroomed in the city in the past few years are now doing the vanishing act leaving young graduates in the lurch.

Awed by the art and the creativity involved in it, many students had taken up 2D and 3D animation technology courses in these companies as well as in private colleges. The courses do not come cheap. While promising them jobs, companies charged as much as Rs 1 to 3 lakh for the shortterm courses. However, upon completing the course, many students found themselves without a job as companies simply shut shop.

Some of the companies that closed during the past one year include Nupur Media, Blue Media International, Shreya Darshi Media House, Global Media Ltd and Spike Media House. Over 10,000 students from across the state are estimated to have taken admission in these institutes.
Many animation companies in the city had started admitting students from 2007-08 forging collaborations with state universities and also engineering and management colleges.

“Our students were trained in animation technology at a lower price. But private candidates from outside were trained for a fee of about Rs 1.5 lakh,” said a representative of an engineering college who collaborated with Spike Media House, to offer its students training in 2D animation course.

Rohit Sirohi, a student from Sambalpur, Orissa, had come to the city for training in animation technology. While he took admission in a part-time course offered by a private engineering college affiliated to Osmania University (OU) that promised him a job after the completion of the course, Sirohi is now left without a job. “The course offered by the college was supported by Blue Media International, an animation school that promised 20 of the students entry level jobs. We were offered a course in 2D animation and some of us paid an extra Rs 1 lakh for learning 3D animation,” said Shirohi, who is now planning to return to his home town.

Another student, Anshuman Kaushik, who took admission in Nupur Media, which collaborated with JNTU said that he paid Rs 1.6 lakh for the 10-month course which the company terminated after the first six months. “Just before the company shut down, about 15 of the 30 students were given offer letters by Nupur Media. Later we realised that the company was not even registered,” said Kaushik.
