    Careers in 3D Animation

    Animation is a multifaceted field, which can be utilised in numerous industries; film, games, training, development and television production.

    Skills such as drawing, compositing, rigging, sculpting, character design, rendering and visual FX are widely sought after by creative media employers in Australia (Stephen 2021).  And, with an increase of real-time projects run by local studios requiring virtual production, immersive experiences and visualisation, the prospects for skilled animators are growing (VFX Insight 2020).

    Globally, the demand for animated overlays in commercials, retro motion graphics in marketing production and detailed, technical training in construction and medicine have provided opportunities for animators to practice their trade in other industries as well (Grand Review research 2021). 

    Data from the Australian Government’s Job Outlook service predicts strong future growth in animation and visualisation (Australian Government 2021). Seek.com predicts a 12.9% increase in employment by 2026 (www.seek.com 2021). The Federal Government also introduced a location incentive for eligible large budget international productions that are made in Australia so there's never been more opportunity on shore for Australian Creatives. Add to this Emmy Award-winning US animation studio Bento Box Entertainment partnering with Victorian production powerhouse Princess Pictures to create a major new animation house, Princess Bento Studio. All of these things are set to provide steady employment opportunities within this space!
