    It is good to see your interest in the field of animation. This field requires the candidates to be a creative person by nature. You pursue the field after completion of 12th standard. There is no minimum marks requirement. You have the option to go in for a bachelors degree or diploma course. There are quite a few institutes offering courses in this field. Some of the institutes offering courses in this field include Arena Animation Academy, Apeejay Institute, NID etc. Some of the institutes do conduct entrance exams to test the candidates skills. It will be good if you also learn some programs like C, C++, Java.

    You can do a graduation course in animation field . But i recommend you to do this course from abroad.
    B.des will be great option for the animators,this will give you a degree in designing field.
    If you want to do only the animation course , then you can join any institutes like Arena, Maya etc.
    But pursuing a degree from abroad will help you improve your creativity.

    Thumbs up Re: How to become an animator?

    Hii
    Animation is a superb colourful field.
    The minimum qualification is +2.
    some institutes offer course for low percentage.
    But there is not of much value if you study in private colleges.
    In order to opt govt universities you need to have better degree with 70% wightage.
    Good luck..!
