Animation at IDC
The Animation program in IDC strives to create people with expertise who will eventually emerge as leaders to influence the future of Animation. IDC expects the students to assume direct responsibility for nearly all aspects of the film making process - from concept to drawing, shooting, camera etc.
India will soon be a player in the international framework of animation production. This turning point brings with it huge responsibilities. We are a newly born, yet unnurtured potential animation culture without a substantial animation history. It is an important time its learning and practice that is informed by an indigenous sensibility.
This is an opportune time for IDC with its strong commitment to design education in the context of Indian requirements, to respond to the necessity of a holistic approach to animation education. This is in keeping with our current endeavor to restructure our courses in response to changing needs, emerging areas and demands of the industry.
The students will have access to cutting edge IT capabilities and the proximity to other engineering disciplines which would facilitate cross disciplinary and collaborative projects, also new areas for animation applications can be explored and experimented with.
The proposed course content includes all areas of study essential to nurture a well rounded approach to animation learning and understanding. The course contents of the proposed program have been designed to leverage the strength of IDC's current courses, complimented with additional courses to meet the new requirements.
