The Nigerian animation and visual effects market is a youthful and brand new one. There are lots of individuals it with a lot of drive and. But among the factors affecting it’s been those of the establishment of a good studios and also the current lack of collaborative projects between artists and technicians within the field.
Finance is really a main factor, particularly in Nigeria. In certain countries grants along with other support systems are for sale to support individuals within the creative industries. Obviously the creative industries needed to battle to have that. However their governments have recognized the creative industries could be a huge earner. The creative economy continues to be recognized by the United nations among the economies which will benefit developing countries hugely if harnessed just like it did for established economies. Regrettably most African governments, including Nigeria’s haven’t quite recognized the possibility.
Many people within our fledgling animation industry are youthful graduates with little financial resources with no large industry to consider them up and outlay cash a good salary. They need to recover it because they complement. It isn’t like our primary established industries (law, engineering, telecoms, banking) where you can find clearer entrance routes and much more money to make. We’re within the pioneering phase at this time. Passion are only able to enable you to get to date if you have no cash (maybe I am dealing with old!)
To now dedicate your time and energy for an animation project with individuals just with regard to it’s hard. Don’t misunderstand me, I believe that is exactly what produces the best product. It is simply difficult to do from the logical daily point of view where bills need to be compensated.
The ‘ego’ concern is also another good point. You will find advantages and disadvantages for this. Everybody wants our projects and studios is the best. I believe natural selection will work things out. Once VFX/animation studios begin to emerge that may hire people, get projects consistently etc many people may wish to work with them. But at where you will find so couple of, individuals are still trying to puzzle out whether their studios would be the industry leaders. I make no apologies for saying my studio is one.
Getting stated all that, situations are altering for that positive as increasing numbers of practitioners meet and network. The long run in the market is searching interesting.
