I am interested in doing animation and web designing

I am in Std XII right now and I am preparing for my board exams in March. I have opted for non-medical stream and I am interested in doing animation and web designing. Does this line have any value today?

To become an animator, it is necessary to have a formal training in Fine Arts/Applied Art/ Commercial Art/Graphic Design/Animation Design/Visual Communication Design. Many institutes and polytechnics all over the country offer these courses. While polytechnics offer such courses to 10th pass students, other institutes may require students to clear 10+2 first.

A strong portfolio (a collection of the artist's best work) is the best way to enter the profession. Knowledge of computer packages like PageMaker, CorelDraw, PhotoShop, is a requirement for all animators today.

This is a field that changes constantly as it evolves. Digital editing, digitized effects and the latest computer advances make new, ever more amazing things possible. The growth rates and opportunities in this sector are tremendous, but competition is keen as many are attracted to this work for the associated glamour and excitement.

What are the prospects for these subjects (apart from engineering) for girls after Class XII. I also want to know career option in computers and the scope in lectureship.

Web designing is a career which will make use of your designing skills and computers. It is the designing of web pages, websites and web applications. To create a website is like creating a masterpiece of art that has all the aesthetics and attractive appeal along with the commercial viability. It is a medium used by companies to promote their business and corporate agencies to market several products to the customers.

To become a lecturer, you should be a post-graduate in the field of your specializations. Also, it is mandatory to clear an entrance examination NET (National Eligibility Test) conducted by UGC. Prospects of qualified lecturers are very encouraging as teaching is completely unaffected by industry recession. In addition, there is an enormous increase in the number of colleges due to increasing importance given to education and increase in population. So roll up sleeves, follow your heart and march forward!
