Ritabrata Banerjee, an alumnus of our academic institution, is one among the other successful students having secured a placement in their company as 2D animator, spoke to us on his journey of an Animation enthusiast and his experience with Hi-Tech Animation.

Interviewer : At first, congratulations Ritabrata, may you always succeed in what you love to do.
Ritabrata: thank you.

Interviewer: alright, I’d like to ask you how it all started? When did you decide to learn Animation.
Ritabrata: I grew up learning sketching and I’ve always been very fond of Animation whether it’s cartoon shows or 3D movies. So after my 12th I decided to enroll myself at Hi-Tech Animation in 2013 to learn Multimedia, a course of one and a half year.

Interviewer: Do you have any working experience before this job interview?
Ritabrata: yes, I have been working as 2D animator since I passed out from Hi-Tech, two and half years ago to be precise. So far I have worked for 4 companies and this is my 5th job I’m going to join. Out of 5 companies Hi-Tech Animation has placed me in 3 companies. I can remember my first job at Chennai, where I worked for one year. I got that job through the help of the placement cell of my institution.

Interviewer: How was today’s experience at the interview?
Ritabrata: Though I have earlier appeared in 4 interviews as an animator still I was a bit nervous. They asked me some tricky questions but I managed to answer all of them. It was a nice experience altogether.

Interviewer: Does the curriculum you studied helped you in your professional field?
Ritabrata: of course, the course I studied a couple of years back was already designed to keep ourselves astride of the latest developments​ at that time. I learned Photoshop,  flash, Maya, Adobe Flash, Premiere, After Effects and many more.

Interviewer: Where do you see yourself in 5 years down the line?
Ritabrata: I have a long cherished dream of working outside of India. I had already applied​ for two overseas companies but both of my applications were rejected since one needs at least 6 years of work experience to fulfill the first provision of working outside of India. Still I’m determined to bag my overseas job offer in couple of years.

Interviewer: Can you share me some of your animation learning experience here?
Ritabrata: When it comes to learning experience the first thing pops up in my mind are faculties of my institute, who are really very helpful and experienced. I still remember all of my teachers there and through this interview I’d like to express my gratitude to them for their proper guidance to place me on my dream pavement of career.

Interviewer: well, thank you Ritabrata, it’s nice to talk with you. Hope you work overseas once you completed the 6th years of working as professional. Wish you all the best for your better future.
Ritabrata: thank you so much.

Career options after Higher Secondary 2017?

Since 90s, global work culture underwent a paradigm change. Lurking file stacks at government offices, no longer warrants job satisfaction to modern professionals. World’s leading companies like Apple, Google or Facebook were floated from humble garages or hostel rooms. People no longer aspire for shorthand training or typewriting skills, which once used to be the only key o success.

Change is the only constant. 

And we are going through that phase of revolutionary change and innovations.

“Accept the change or perish” is our only success mantra. Pertaining to age old decisions and belief systems is the biggest adversary we can think of.

“Due to exorbitant demand for animators in Kolkata, we suffer from perpetual dearth of human resource. We recruited more than 100 animators in last quarter of 2016. Demand for skilled professionals in Animation & VFX industry is always higher than its supply. One of the key reasons is our ignorance about new age career options.                                                                                          – Subrata Roy, Director Hi-Tech Film & Broadcast Academy.

Kolkata now boasts of productions like Shiva & Motu Patlu in Nickleodeon. Animators from other states of India like Delhi, Hyderabad and Ahmedabad are flocking to Kolkata.

“Kolkata is an emerging hotspot for Animation and VFX production. Production houses in Kolkata are working for national and international clients at par with other states like Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad. Recently there is a noted influx of animators and designers in Kolkata. We have several outstation employees who work for us here in Kolkata”.Sanjoy Adhikary, Director & Partner, Graphics Box Master

Nowadays, students and predominantly their parents are more concerned about acquiring degrees than gaining requisite skills. We are dwelling in a value added generation where employees and professionals are judged by their value added skills rather than their certificates. Starting from tech firms to media industry- everyone is looking for efficient professionals. So realize your inner potential and be generous in pursuing your career passionately.
