Does budget matter in film making

Published on September 28, 2012, by in Animation.

Whenever we watch a film, we call it a hit or a flop based on its entertainment value. But the most critical factor on which these two terms depend is the budget and the profit earned by the film.  Films can therefore be categorized into low budget or big budget flicks. Every film maker wants to show his creativity to the audience on a 70 mm screen, but the bigger objective is profits, After all, this is a business and business means getting good returns on your investment.

Published on September 10, 2012, by in Gaming.

Gaming is not only restricted to children these days but has covered wider spectrum of audience. Games are available on Consoles, phones, personal computers, internet and even on TV. In my previous articles, I had discussed about the various types of games that make up this industry. In this post, I will be discussing hand held gaming devices. Category Currently, hand held games can be put into two categories – touch based and Handheld console games.

These games have very little learning curve and can be mastered by anyone in a very short period of time.

Remember how, as a child, we used to spend our evenings watching cartoons –applauding Spiderman or Power Rangers beating up the bad guys or laughing heartily at Tom & Jerry’s antics. When I was growing up, I always wanted to create a cartoon movie of my own. I often dreamt of creating my characters, designing their look & cooking up my own super-hit series. Animation is nothing but putting life in a character. In the simplest terms, it refers to making a character move as per a designated set of instructions.  But, did you know the character or cartoon in itself does not ‘move’? Surprising, isn’t it? But, animation is actually your vision playing tricks on you in a way- it gives an impression that an object is moving by rapid display of sequence of events. You can do a lot more with animation and graphic designing other than just
