Bacolod, Negros Occidental gear up for animation outsourcing industry

Bacolod City (29 June) -- The prospects of a globally expanding Philippine animation industry encourage Negrense freelance animators, teachers and professionals in Bacolod to support local initiatives to generate jobs under the said industry.

"Animation is one of the industries that rake in revenues for the Philippines next to overseas Filipino workers (OFW) remittances," Maria Victoria Ilagan, Executive Director of the Animation Council of the Philippines, Inc. (ACPI) said recently during the seminar on animation outsourcing conducted by the Bacolod-Negros Occidental Federation for Information and Communications Technology (BNEFIT).

"Bacolod should now explore the animation industry as one of the lucrative careers in the business process outsourcing sector," Bacolod City Councilor and chair of BNEFIT Jocelle Batapa-Sigue said.

Sigue invited ACPI, a non-stock and non-profit organization whose member companies specialize mainly in 2D or 3D animation, recognized and supported by the Philippine government.

ACPI aims to promote the animation industry globally with the intention of creating an identity for the Philippines to be considered amongst the preferred countries that service the animation industry, Ilagan said.

The challenges which now lies ahead is for us to organize our local animators, encourage schools to offer animation as either a course, subject or an elective, encourage the establishment of TESDA-accredited animation training centers, strenghten the tie between BNEFIT and ACPI, conduct massive public information about the job opportunities in animation and game development, Batapa-Sigue stressed.*(Batapa News/ PIA) [top]
