The "Animation Studio" has these goals and objectives:
1. To draw upon our rich resource of indigenous images and narratives
for socially and culturally relevant animation.
2. To equip animation designers to develop content at pre production stage
which has a sensibility and style that inhabits a space and time that
is contextually relevant.
3. To be shaping an industry that has a huge potential in gaming and animation.
4.· To equip animation makers with skill levels at par with international
5. To allow for experimentation and explorations using diverse medias,
techniques and tools.
At IDC, access to cutting edge IT capabilities and the proximity to other
engineering disciplines will facilitate cross disciplinary and collaborative
projects, also new areas for animation applications can be explored and
experimented with. Students will have the opportunity to do full scale
individual projects as well as research oriented projects.
Animation today sees applications in many areas including films, special
effects, gaming, educational material, illustrating medical processes,
simulation, virtual reality, mobile devices, information graphics, web
graphics, advertising, information films, TV graphics etc.
The animation studio at IDC is equipped with software and hardware to
do complete (pre to post production) animation projects. The software
includes Animo for 2D production work, Maya for 3D projects and Nuendo
for sound recording, processing and editing. The sound recording equipment
includes mini disc recorders, mics, mixer and monitors. The studio also
has A3 scanner, individual workstations and a line tester apart from light
boxes and a studio punch. Many Apple G5's are available for editing. The
studio will grow in keeping with industry standards.
