A much-needed push for the digital media industry in India and a spot-on career compass for Animation-VFX-Gaming-UI/UX Design aspirants.
The bestselling book “Exciting Careers in Digital Media” earlier available in English and Telugu only, now enjoys a wider reach across urban and rural pockets of India following the launch of its Hindi edition.
As the world goes irrevocably digital, and as this phenomenon ratchets up the technology curve at a blistering pace, the writing on the wall, rather, the message on the screen is crystal clear: “digital” is not just here to stay but is now, virtually indispensable to life.
Incessant, rapid, and ground-breaking innovations combined with technological advancements are shaking up the existing order and revolutionizing life as it produces a staggering churn powerful enough to realign the future.
At the heart of this racy and exciting phenomenon is the business world, particularly, the digital media industry which has so much to gain and so much to adapt to; an onrush of new roles aligning to the emerging tech dynamics and the surge in required capacities to meet burgeoning demand unleashed by unbridled digitization.
Animation, VFX, Gaming, Comics, Graphic-Mobile-UI/UX Design, Filmmaking, and other digital media industry verticals are some of the catalysts influencing this tectonic shift. These disciplines are emerging as some of the most in-demand pathways as there is a sustainable upswing in the variety and quantity of jobs. More jobs are being generated, and they are proving to be rewarding as well.
Many students are now opting for careers in digital media and entertainment, even as the industry gears up to meet heightened demand for VFX, Gaming, Graphic Design, and Animation courses in Hyderabad as well as across the country.
Though there’s so much action taking place in the digital media space with a multitude of courses and job opportunities, the road ahead for aspirants is a bit confusing due to the lack of a reliable and informative resource to explore career options in this sector and make a decision. To plug this gap, Creative Multimedia, the best multimedia college in India published a book titled “Exciting Careers in Digital Media” with complete information about the courses, job opportunities, and other relevant career and industry trivia.
As Rajiv Chilaka – Founder & CEO of Green Gold Animation, and President of TVAGA (Telangana VFX, Animation and Gaming Association) put it: “This book effectively addresses one of the big challenges that young multimedia career aspirants in India face today – the lack of a comprehensive knowledge resource to understand and evaluate the gamut of options in this industry”.
The book is faring well in the market and is being commended by leading lights of the industry. Initially launched in English and later on in Telugu, the publisher, with a mission to make the book available to the widest possible audience has now brought out the Hindi edition.
