What do you learn?

This course offers you an advanced diploma in Animation and VFX, where you can learn the different techniques of animation, ranging from the fundamentals of 2D drawing and camera actions to exploring and creating dynamics and special effects in 3D animation.In the advanced stages digital publishing, 3D modeling and adding special effects to animated movies are taught.

Designed keeping in mind all the prerequisites and skills required to be a successful visual fx artist, Stargate takes students through the basics to the advanced training in live action VFX required for films and TV. The added infrastructure over and above the software training is the feather in a cap to the student's learning curve as he/she will have the know-how of how to shoot for VFX shots rather than only knowing how to work on them in a software environment.

Broad concepts covered in this course include story and script development, character design, storyboard, 3D modeling, texturing, lighting, animation, and rendering. Related elements will include special effects, sound and post-production.

Students will work both independently, and in small groups to produce animated (or) VFX sequences for themselves and others. Photoshop, After Effects, Adobe Premiere, Maya and Nuke are the primary software for this class.
