    Before you decide to make him a professional animator it is a must that you check whether he is interested in the field. Give him a brief idea about the courses and the career path. Also it is important he be artistic and creative in nature. Once sure about this career option he must complete his 12th standard. After that he has various options available like to go in for a certificate course or diploma course in the field. Institutes like MIT Pune, Whistling Woods International Institute for Film, Television & Media Arts Mumbai, NID Ahmedabad are some of the reputed institutes offering courses in this field. For those aspiring to go in for a postgraduation course IDC - IIT Mumbai offers courses in this area. Make sure that he keeps creates a portfolio during the period of the course. He will learn to make a storyboard too during this period. Normally most institutes require only a pass class in 12th standard. You can contact the institutes or visit the website for further details.
