Course Description

Studying Animation opens the door to a unique form of art which takes great extent of persistence, passion and patience to produce marvel on screen. You will learn how to bring life to your drawings/CGI (computer generated imagery), creating an illusion of spirit and vigour. You will caricature the gestures and expressions in the drawings/CGI, giving them a fantastic array of characters and personalities, and making audiences believe that the drawings/CGI can actually think and have feelings.

Animation to Build Character

Beyond having a magnificent machine, superb software and good art sense, what makes an animator thick is simply the humble virtues of passion, patience and persistence; and that is where the character of an animator is first molded.

Syllabus of Moving Passion

An animator's job satisfaction always depends on his or her skills and story. Therefore, a combine training of strong drawing skills and software techniques has to be included with substantial exposure to script writing and movie appreciation.

This program empowers you with skills to dramatize and caricature life of characters acting and reacting on screen. The major part of animation involves a project of personal show reel and short movie starting from scratch. Therefore, exposure in areas such as 3D character design, storyboard development, special effects etc. is fairly crucial. The value of your work will be determined by the ability of swaying the emotions of the audiences by means of making the characters act.
