Arena launches 2 Animation Studios in Chennai

Arena Animation has launched animation studios at Chennai’s Vadapalani and Anna Nagar centres. Both centres offer Arena’s high-end Diploma in Animation Engineering (DAE) program.

R Krishnan, Executive Director, Aptech Ltd, says, “The high-tech animation studios are being launched to enable students of DAE to undergo intensive training. These studios are equipped to train students in the latest animation & special effects techniques and offer them hands-on training in advanced animation technology.”

The studios will facilitate live projects and intensive industry interaction for DAE students.

Each studio has facilities such as DV Cams, Green Matt room for compositing & visual effects, animation light boxes, scanners, editing software, etc. and students will handle these personally, enabling them to understand techniques involved in the various stages of SFX such as pre-production, production and post-production.

The course offers a dynamic career in the expanding industry of computer animation, used extensively in television/ films, animated simulation rides and walk-throughs, computer games, and digital environments.

On completion of this course, students will be able to choose from exciting career options such as 2D animator, 3D animator, computer animation effects specialist, technical directors, technical animators, effects animators, effects developers, graphics programmers, games developers, etc.
