Animation Career Review (ACR) is the ultimate online resource for people aspiring for careers in animation, game design, graphic design, digital art, and related fields. Launched in 2011, the site aims to be the most comprehensive source of information for aspiring animation and game design professionals.

In its recently announced 2021 school rankings of the “Top 25 International Animation Training Programs”, The One Academy – one of Malaysia’s leading art and design institutions, made the list for the third year running by ranking in at #8. The college steadily climbs up the ranks, previously entering at #11 in 2019 and placing #10 last year.

For the animation category, the criteria used to determine the rankings is the institute’s academic reputation, admission selectivity, depth and breadth of the programme, value relating to tuition and indebtedness and employment data. With 178 international colleges considered this year, The One Academy has scored highly in each of the above criteria, beating out countries Singapore, Brazil, South Africa, France, Sweden, Portugal and Australia in the list.

In the current world where global consumers are displaying a growing appetite for engaging visual experiences and moviegoers demanding high-quality productions with realistic animation and visual effect, studios are including more animation and VFX scenes into film productions and games. According to, the market size of the global animation, VFX and video games industry reached US$ 261 billion in 2020.
