Animation is a method in which pictures are manipulated to appear as moving images. In traditional animation, images are drawn or painted by hand on transparent celluloid sheets to be photographed and exhibited on film. Today most animations are made with computer-generated imagery which is created by animation & 3d artists. Animation is not about making cartoons or sketches it is much more. It is a combination of art as well as technology. With Animation any one can bring life to their imagination. With proper skills & good training any one can get a job in animation studios, production houses, advertising agencies, vfx studios, TV channels with good salaries.

Visual effects (abbreviated VFX) is the process by which imagery is created or manipulated outside the context of a live action shot in film making.
