Sandiaga also explained that film, animation, and video filmmakers in Sleman Regency are not inferior in quality to foreign-made products.
This is evidenced by a request from an international television network to an animation studio in Sleman Regency. For a single production, the animation sub-sector alone is able to absorb between 25 to 35 workers. This is part of the creation of 1.1 million new quality jobs by 2022 for economic revival and recovery.

Therefore, this good potential needs to be supported by government programs that are right on target, right on benefits, and on time. Some of the programs needed by film, animation, and video activists include Stimulus PEN Film, as a more appreciation of the work of the nation’s children, especially animation, to the production of films, animations, and videos shown on national television for the younger generation.
