IniDia’s Internship Program

When we talk about internships, what do you have in mind?

For us, an internship is a symbiosis of mutualism, where internship members get new skills or at least their skills will improve by helping to do the work in our studio. They got a new skill and the project in the studio becomes lighter. As simple as that.

But what happens in the reality is not that easy.

Approaching the semester break season, vocational high school students and final-year students will begin to be busy looking for internships or Industrial Practices following their respective fields and expertise.

And on that period, starting from email, Instagram Direct Message, to the office Hotline will be filled with applications and questions about internships. Not only that, during the season of internships, we will be visited by groups of students who "beg" to be accepted for internships at IniDia Studio.

Sometimes we think about how special is IniDia Studio that they are so interested in applying to become internship members?

After we have reviewed it, our former internship members seem to be considered several things to intern at IniDia Studio. What are they?

Flashback a few years ago, 2017, the first year we started developing IniDia Studio. At that time, we still needed to learn many things, understand our business and our team, map out our business’s direction, look for relationships, and manage interns ?! Yes, even at that time we were confused about dividing each other's desks, and some people wanted to become interns at IniDia Studio which made us even more confused.

They are teachers at one of the vocational schools in Bali. When we ask them why they were interested in interning at InDia Studio even though our studio was still new at that time, they answered that this internship activity is one of the requirements of the school for vocational school teachers where they are required to have dual skills, there are academic skills and technical skills. Then we ask “what do you want to learn here?” And they were confused and answered, “yes, just a little animation technique”.Well, because we are both confused we decided to provide basic animation material. After that, we just understood that they just need a certificate or a statement that they have participated in internships at IniDia Studio, which is an animation studio.

The internship activity which lasted for three months just passed, we did not feel any benefit for us, the studio, or the internship members themselves.

Furthermore, we were faced with interns, vocational school students with skills that we can conclude did not reach 20%. Honestly, we were quite confused to give them the task. Involve them in the projects we are working on is a BIG NO NO. Let them provide domestic tasks, such as making coffee, photocopying documents, and cleaning the room?

Of course not, they are not applying as an office boy in our studio by the way.

The next story is that we accept final-year students as interns, with the skills they have, they can still be involved in the project. And surely there are other obstacles, ATTITUDE.

Attitude in our opinion, even according to most people, is the most important thing. Apart from that, our concern is on communication. When either one of the team members or interns can't communicate properly, that's where the chaos begins.

Of the many things we have faced in receiving and handling interns, we are a bit traumatized. Honestly, we are insecure enough to accept interns for some time. However, life goes on. In the end, we tried to get rid of all those worries because it was difficult to find new talents around us.

So the conclusion is that interns are just apprentices to fulfill the requirements of their school or agency. It is very rare to find those who are looking for relationships or want to learn new things.

Because we don't want to waste our time or members who are interning at IniDia Studio, finally we try to design an internship program for students and final-year students. In the program, we don't involve them in the project but guide them in mindset, skill, attitude, and communication to generate an initiative project. They come without skills and come home with skills is our goal.

And until now we have implemented the internship program to produce new talents with industrial quality work.

Are You Really Need Animation for Your Business

It is undeniable that videos are very much needed in marketing business strategies. From various types of videos, many companies choose to use animated videos in marketing their products and business.

Animated videos are considered more effective in reaching a wider audience by storytelling compared to videos where someone is explaining the advantages of their product over and over again. It's reported that animated videos have around 30% higher engagement rates than live-action.


The uniqueness of the characters and designs featured in the animated videos make them easier to remember and more eye-catching. If prepared carefully from production quality, animated videos can produce advertisements that are unique, different, and truly represent the brand or product being marketed.

In addition to the visuals that are far different, in terms of the production price of animated videos, they are also much cheaper than live-action, which certainly puts more pressure on the company's marketing costs.

So are you more interested in using animated videos?



In producing an animated film the cost and effort incurred are very much. However, if the animated film is not well promoted, then all the investment that spend on producing animated films will be in vain. For this reason, a producer is willing to spend so much money, even more than the cost of…

IniDia’s Ways in This Pandemic

It’s more than a month now we doing Work From Home and it feels like we miss our team so much. Doing teamwork online is neither easy nor difficult, but it seems like we enjoy it. So here are some tips to share about our ways to manage our “small team” in this pandemic.

Here we go!

1. Maintain good communication

We all know that good communication is very important, so there is no misunderstanding. At this time, it is important to make ourselves accessible to all team members so they can approach us with any issues they may have.

Besides, get used to sharing about ongoing projects, deadlines, and everything about work to team members. This is good so that all team members are accustomed to communicating, give and receive feedback, and most importantly they feel valued.

2. Building a good relationship

Knowing our team members individually is important. Get to know a bit more about their interest will build a better relationship among all team members. After the video call meeting (work meeting), don’t immediately disconnect it. Take time to discuss things outside of work such as hobbies or current issues can also improve relationships among team members.

3. Manage conflict

All of us really sure we all don’t want conflicts between teams, especially during this pandemic, it is very troublesome to solve conflicts online. Although, the slightest problem should not be ignored so it does not become big. Finish it slowly with a calm mind and the right language and words as appropriate as possible to avoid misunderstandings.

4. Be transparent

Being transparent in this situation is good to develop a feeling of mutual respect among team members. It also makes team members feel more comfortable and happier. And being transparent can minimize conflicts among the team.

So, this is our way. May you share yours?

How We Created Our Squads

The need for animation as a medium in digital marketing has increased considerably since the Covid-19 pandemic began to strike in 2019. We as an animation team in IniDia Studio at that time needed additional squads to work on the animation project that came. But what we face is the difficulty of finding the right squads to help us, especially on working remotely.

Human resources in the animation industry in Bali in our opinion is still difficult to find, if there is, maybe only a handful of them actually have sufficient skills and that too must be fought over with other animation studios. The animation human resources crisis is quite alarming.

Early in 2021, we gave trust to the Balai Diklat Industri Denpasar and in holding animation training (Diklat) to produce animation human resources who are competent and ready to work. Due to the minimal duration of the training, in our opinion, the participants' absorption of the material was not intense.

Then we decided to create the CGNTM Academy Intermediate Program where we chose the best participants (who have animation skills that can be improved, have an interest in animation, and have good communication skill and attitude) during the training for us to retrain intensively by the experienced competent instructor from the IniDia Studio Team.

Of the several classes that have finished, we feel a significant increase in participants.

Therefore, we will provide this CGNTM Academy Intermediate Program in the future to produce more quality human resources that suit the needs of the animation industry.
