We are the root for astonishing Media and Entertainment sector’s some of the biggest genres : Feature Films, Games, Television, Commercials and many other forms of AV presentations. Indian Animation and VFX artists are at their best when coming to quality and quantity of the Animation, Post Production and Visual Effects output. Nearly all major Hollywood block buster movies have credentials of Indian visual effects artists. But, we are not getting enough salary according to our hard work we put in for each and every shot. Now, the studios are hiring on contract basis, so the artists again gets dip in the wage. On top of it, there is no surplus remuneration for overtime work. So, the artist has to work freelance apart from the regular day job.
But, this is not how it should be.
We are facing all these problems as there is no lobby of us in the Indian Government. There is no system to raise our problems to concerned authorities. Through this ‘Overtime rules and payment for Animation and VFX Artists’ petition, Manish wants to regulate minimum wages per hour along with work timings. There must also be fixed ratio of contract / permanent employees in Animation and Visual Effects companies. By getting support of Government authorities and laws, we can earn what we deserve with satisfaction of work. It will be a boost up to creates best visual effects output only.
