To produce a quality animation, we would need comprehensive planning and a complex preparation but the most important thing that we would have to do in this industry is to build networking. Thus, it is very important for students to know the seniors in this field and to have mentors who could share their experiences and even help them by giving the right direction.”

“For all of you who would want to work in the filming or animation industry, you’ll need an open mind –because, an open mind is really needed in the making process of a work which involved collaboration with various parties.”

After that, you’ll have to practice, practice and practice. This is the main key to a success in this industry.“ (mt)
