Technicolor India, part of $5.5 billion Technicolor SA, has said that it will ramp up its team strength by 30% this year.

In an interaction with Deccan Herald, Technicolor India country head Biren Ghose said, the company is looking at creative talent pool to cater to the growing demand from across the globe.

“We have right now 2,000 people at our Bengaluru office. It is one of the biggest animation, gaming and visual effects studios in the world, which began its operations in 2001. We will add around 600 people in the creative side of our business,” said Ghose, adding the company operates in three verticals like creative services, technology, and connected home. “The Bengaluru studio is into creative services only. In the creative side, the company handles post production works, visual effects and animation works studio,” he said.

When asked about the investment for the expansion, he didn’t disclose any amount. “Setting up a seat in the animation studio is the most expensive among all other industries because of the huge investment required for hardware, software and data centre,” said Ghose.

On the animation industry, he said, Bengaluru was not even in the top seven cities in the country some 10 years ago. “Now, given the talent pool available in Bengaluru, it is the top city in the country,” he said. “The government should provide infrastructure and technology support, along with academia to attract more talent,” he added.

Backed by its experienced team of game artists and animators, the state-of-the-art technology infrastructure at Technicolor India digital production studio in Bengaluru, is already a part of many animation production houses and Hollywood films.
