Why Us?

This workshop will be beneficial for students in following ways:
o The workshop gives an overview of the 3D computer animation industry.
o They learn how to use animation tools and their implementation in real world applications.
o Students will Design a 3D movie themselves at the end of the workshop.
o They learn how to use Modeling, Texturing, Lighting and Rendering etc topics on a new project and work on it.
o Full Hands-on session along with Theory sessions step by step.
o Faculty and expert from Industries.
o We provide them future help and guidance for participating in competitions and these competitions makes them skillful and enhance their practical knowledge.
o Also the workshop doesn't end up then and there. They can contact the concerned faculties throughout their graduation or thereafter also if they need any guidance regarding industrial Projects and Placements.


The duration of this workshop will be two consecutive days, with eight hour session each day in a total of sixteen hours properly divided into theory and hands on sessions
