Asian Animation is a Growing Industry; New Players in India, China, Malaysia, Vietnam and Singapore.
Animation history in Asia started in the 1940s and was heavily influenced by the needs of Western studios, and Disney in particular. Exposure to foreign production, training abroad, and foreign assistance were important factors behind the emergence of an animation tradition in countries such as China, Japan, Korea, and India. In all such instances, however, Asian artists only adopted those elements that fit their own culture, although this strategy was probably more pronounced in China, especially after 1949, and Japan than elsewhere.
The mature animation production countries in Asia include Japan, South Korea, the Philippines and Taiwan. As animation production is a very lucrative and labor-intensive (70 percent to 80 percent of costs go to labor) business, other Asian countries such as India, China, Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore have recently started their own industries. The early animation in Asia was predominantly influenced by Walt Disney. Thus, China' s The Smiling Monkey was termed a copy of Mickey Mouse, and India's The Pea brothers (1934), considered by some as India' s first theatrically released animated film was said to be similar to Disney animations. In many of these countries, pioneer animators such as Payut Ngaokrachang of Thailand (influenced by American cartoonist Max Fleischers), Tezuka of Japan, James Wang of Taiwan, and Shin Dong Hun of Korea were known as the Walt Disney of these countries.
