The 3D Animation Diploma is an intensive specialization path aimed to develop student's through a systematic training that covers a wide spectrum of subjects which includes Advanced Art, 2D Animation, Pre-production, Production techniques with the industry standard software’s and an extensive final project. The program enables students to attain expertise in creating a complete animated content from concept to production.
The skills attained over the course will aid student to be part of
The introductory courses in art and design form a strong fundamental for visual communication using text, animation and visual for a variety of mediums. This course also lets students explore a variety of techniques in storytelling, which is the core element of animated film. The students are exposed to principles of animation and character design which helps to make character animation more realistic, and entertaining.
Graphic Design is a comprehensive design curriculum for creating effective visual communication. The exhaustive curriculum incorporates visualization, concept development, design techniques and composition through design case studies and hands-on exercises. The module provides specialization in areas such as layout, illustration, Print based graphics and Digital graphics.
Visual Design is an extensive hands-on foundation module in Digital Visual Art & Design, aimed to stimulate the student's creativity and imagination. Through Art & Design assignments, students master how to make aesthetic and practical design decisions. Also they learn about the diverse roles and functions of design elements in present-day life and their applications in Digital Visual Media.
Web design is a web-focused curriculum that helps master the art and skill of effectively communicating to a global audience through a website. The project based curriculum covers all aspects of creating an effective site including interactive design and interface design. Comprehensive coverage extends from basic to advanced content creation for optimal web delivery.
3D Design provides a foundation to the understanding of 3D concepts like modeling, texturing, lighting, camera, animation & rendering in a simplified manner. The module is innovative, project focused and encourages teamwork, planning and thoughtful execution of 3D project. The Media Animation project taught in this module serves as a strong foundation for aspiring 3D Modelers, Texture Artists, Visual Effects Artists, Character Animators and prepares them to cope with the Specialization modules to be taught in the later part of the Diploma program.
Digital Video Editing adds interest and variety to the Diploma. The module enables the students to make a rough cut of their 3D and Visual FX works and apply interesting transitions and video effects. Students learn video capturing, professional video editing techniques like 3 point editing, synchronize audio and video, apply filters and output the edited video to various file formats.
The specialization modules trains students in 3d digital modeling techniques which includes: Inorganic and organic modeling and texturing methods using NURBS, Polygons and sub-d surfaces. A series of practical exercise guides student through the process of creating and generating an animation. Added on to it the student will also learn to light 3d environments, setup shading networks and render scenes\images.
