According to a Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and Confederation of Indian Sector (CII) media and entertainment sector report, the Indian animation and visual effects industry might reach 20-25% of the worldwide market by 2025 from its current 10% share.

VFX Course

Students in the School of Design’s Visual Effects(VFX) programme are equipped to produce visually arresting effects for movies, TV shows, and other media. The technical parts of visual effects, including match movement, digital matte painting, particle simulation, and compositing, are taught to students.

The programme also places a strong emphasis on artistic abilities like lighting, texture creation, and colour grading. Students learn how to blend computer-generated elements and live-action footage flawlessly through practical exercises and instruction in industry-standard software.

So, why is VFX so hot these days?

According to Mr. Keitan Yadav, Chief Operating Officer of Red Chillies Entertainment, technology not only offers viewers a better viewing experience, but it also gives artists and filmmakers more creative freedom to create shots, scenes, and entire films that look amazing and realistic.

The Indian visual effects business has added 85,000 jobs in the last two years alone, and with studios like MPC in Bengaluru on a recruiting binge, there might be an additional 15,00,000 jobs added in the years to come.

Best Game Designing Courses

Students who enrol in the School of Design’s Gaming curriculum get hands-on experience in game creation, development, and design. Students research level design, programming, prototyping, and game mechanics.

They also explore project management, game audio, game marketing, and game art and asset creation. Students can create their own games and gain practical experience and a comprehensive grasp of the game creation process by using state-of-the-art technology and tools.

India has grown from 40 million gamers in the previous year to over 400 million in 2022, making it the second-largest gaming market in the world. The country’s 600 million smartphone users have made a significant contribution to this increase.

There is still need for improvement in game design, art, and storytelling, despite the fact that Indian gaming businesses have an abundance of engineering and product management talent.
