The Philippines is an established provider for a variety of business process outsourcing services (BPO). Its large pool of skilled Anglophone workers, available at competitive wages make it one of the best BPO destinations.
For over 25 years, the Philippines has also been known for its talented animation specialists and the reliability of its industry players. Simultaneously, the thriving animation industries of North America and Europe create a strong demand for animation outsourcing, which translates into new opportunities for Asian animators. Putting together animated films is a labour intensive task, prohibitive in Western countries where wages are high. Filipino animators make it possible for big and small production companies to create animated features and computer games at a fraction of the cost.
The Philippines with its lower wages, creative and skilled animation specialists is the perfect place to outsource animation jobs.

Not only are production costs lower in the Philippines and English the main language, Filipino animation firms have proven again and again their consistency, quality and output speed. Furthermore, the Philippines is the Asian culture closest to Western culture, which means that communication is quick and that concepts and stories are understood right away.
Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Scooby Doo, Tom & Jerry, the Addams Family… just to name a few of the of world renown cartoons and animated films Filipino animators have made possible for international entertainment companies like Walt Disney, Warner Brothers and Cartoon Network.
