Hi there,
I’m an American. I really want to Put together an Animation Studio in India. At present i’m browsing for computer animators. I selected India considering that it is less expensive as compared to U.S. I need to know the operations for starting up a business enterprise in India, primarily an animation studio.

Can you fellas please help me out?

Good luck with your new Animation Studio .
