That’s true I agree its going down but the thing is even big company’s like ILM are facing some problem. So its going to saturate only people with good background of art and talent can survive in this field in the long run. In India people shift from different field to 3d cos of high pay scale the industry is offering. And the result is lack of knowledge and proper understanding about the animation field. Hence the quality suffers. This was the case in one of the big studios in chennai where they had to lay around 1500+ people.



But any way its a long journey. Lets wait and watch.

well.... are u trying to tell us all that ILM's problems has something to do with jadooworks??? or like ... say... "even ILM has troubles...so how can anyone blame jadoo???"

according to me ILM has produced a lot of good works for people all around and are in the show for past 20+ years... where as jadoo has produced lots of useless people and bad works and it was a failure right from its start in 2000... think differently atleast from now on... an excuse is not what can change our stupid attitude... we need a solid stable industry and talented artists in india... not one like jadoo or pentafour...or..xyz....

It' is a case of expected growth and investments vs. level of work and increased competition. If you grow too big too fast you may find the cost of managing (read mismanaging) your talent and assets costs too much. End effect are high bids for projects others can do for far less.

Reading the article, they have more money invested in them than they are giving back in returns through profits. It's not enough for a company to get millions in investment if you don't have a means of matching and increasing the invested returns. Investors want to make money not pay peoples salaries.

looks like he wanted to market "chillax" somewhere...

fun part is that people who were working in the top level of jadoo carried the same bad name into other companies... looks like they never want to change and keep on going around companies closing down one by one... same people who managed to close down pentamedia..then till... then v3.... then jadoo... now what??? lets see...

First off ILM is not a totally CGI driven studio. It does quite abit of NON-CGI effects. Secondly it's a VERY well established studio that doesn't depend solely on it's computers to make a buck, so it'll ALWAYS have business because of it's diversity. The same thing can be said for Dreamworks. Both of them view CGI as a tool or method, but know that it's hardly the ALL-ENCOMPASSING theory of moving picture making.

OK......... Jadooworks is falling...........falling ........ and falling...............

I hope other big companies like Crest, CGI etc. who have plan's to expand their worke force take note of whats happend to jaadooworks......

As lot of people are taken with littel knowledg in the field of 3d and animation into these comanies and the result is bad and low quality stuff..........

.....this may affect the projects which are lined up and yet to come to India ....

There is lot of talent in India but need to be properly utilised by these companies......

So please TAKE NOTE OF WHAT CAN HAPPEN TO U AND UR COMPANY IF U GIVE BAD QUALITY
AND JUST TAKE PEOPLE WITHOUT KNOWLEG OF ANIMATION !

Any one know what happend to the animators ?? Did they got their Pay check ??:eek: last news was that aashish came in between and had some major negotiations with pavan and rajiv and decided to pay salary... many jadoos are flying into paaprikaas, dq, mel and crest..... and crest started implementing new hr policies... "animators Rs 100 per kilo" interview board and hr have started fixing salary as per the actual weight of the individual... salary reached as low as Rs 2500($50) pm in crest... even a begger makes better income in bombay... looks like they are trying hard to prove that all the management people have inherited from multiple dad's....

cant say enjoy now... wtf to enjoy at this sad stage
