Enabling students to give shape to their wildest imaginations is the best challenge we take up in this course through varied learning methodologies. From regular classroom sessions and group learning to studio practices, research-oriented learning, sessions from professionals, outdoor learning, internships, and real-time project works, students are taken through every effective way of learning in the three years of study.
Our course will help you in developing your ability to look at things differently and find new ways of solving problems. Creative thinking skills are not just for ‘creative types’ like artists and musicians. Everyone can benefit from creative thinking from time to time.
Knowing the color theory is very important for an animation student. Color theory is both the science and art of using color. It explains how humans perceive color; and the visual effects of how colors to mix, match or contrast with each other.
Conceptual art is an art form in which the concept or idea involved in the work take precedence over traditional aesthetic, technical, and material concerns. When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair.
Graphic design is art with a purpose. It involves a creative and systematic plan to solve a problem or achieve certain objectives, with the use of images, symbols or even words. It is visual communication and the aesthetic expression of concepts and ideas using various graphic elements and tools.
Stop motion is an animated filmmaking technique in which objects are physically manipulated in small increments between individually photographed frames so that they will appear to exhibit independent motion or change when the series of frames is played back. Through our course, we promise to make your expertise in this film making technique.
2D, or two-dimensional animation, is a combination of artistic technique and media design that creates the illusion of movement in a two-dimensional environment. By sequencing individual drawings together over time, characters, backgrounds, objects, and effects look as if they are moving. This is commonly done for animated movies and television, but it is also seen in video games, websites, mobile apps, and advertisements.
3D animation is nothing but animating objects that appear in a three-dimensional space. They can be rotated and moved like real objects. 3D animation is at the heart of games and virtual reality, but it may also be used in presentation graphics to add flair to the visuals.
Clay modeling is an art of building substances using clay and sculpting materials. The material compositions and production processes vary considerably. We teach our students the composition techniques of different clays and also provide workshops and additional classes for our students to make them a great sculpting or clay model artist.
Visual effect is a term used to describe imagery created, manipulated, or enhancement of any film, or other moving media that cannot take place during live-action shooting. VFX is the integration between actual footage and this manipulated imagery to create realistic looking environments for the context. Current media productions are highly looking for Vfx artist and that is the key reason for us to include VFX as a core subject in the course.
Filmmaking is the process of making a film, generally in the sense of films intended for extensive theatrical exhibition. Filmmaking involves several discrete stages including an initial story, idea, or commission, through screenwriting, casting, shooting, sound recording and pre-production, editing, and screening the finished product before an audience that may result in a film release and exhibition.
Not only the visual communication student need to learn film making, it is mandatory that an animation student also should know the art of making film and clusters focus on providing our students with all the needful.
