MUMBAI: Frameboxx has inked an alliance with BIG Animation for offering the specialization module in the Redboxx 1 flagship course at BIG Animation studio in Pune.
This enables students to do their specialization in an enhanced and research / case-studies oriented format. Students who are studying at Frameboxx centers across India would be able to opt to pursue their specialization at BIG Animation’s finishing school-BIG AIMS.
Besides, the existing students of Frameboxx would be able to do a specialization in a studio environment. This arrangement would help student to do the foundation and complete the basic courses in their own cities across India at Frameboxx and come to BIG AIMS to pursue specialization.
Students who enroll for this programme will have access to world class facilities at Big Animation including case studies, research and interaction with experts who have worked on numerous award winning animation projects.
"At BIG Animation, we are excited to take positive steps towards nurturing great animation talent with our new industry-academia interface with Frameboxx. We share a common vision with Frameboxx that good animation education has to be complemented with a strong industry exposure and orientation to production mechanisms and workflows in a practical environment. At BIG Animation, we’ve nurtured our team with strong creative and technical skills and by interfacing our expertise with students, we believe that we would be able to craft the next generation of techno-creative artistes who would have a very strong foundation and skill set aimed at handling production challenges from day one," said BIG Animation Studio CEO Ashish Kulkarni.
As was recently reported by Businessofcinema.com, the studio had announced the launch of their academic initiative in BIG AIMS – an Animation Infotainment & Media School – to provide specialized courses from ideation to script to screen.
"At Frameboxx, we’ve always believed in inculcating strong production values in our students and the association with BIG Animation is yet another innovative step in elevating that initiative by exposing students to a world class animation production facility and production experts. We’re excited and glad at this initiative and see a great future ahead. I firmly believe that it’ll be a unique opportunity for our students who wish to carve a niche in this industry," added Frameboxx CEO and executive director Naveen Gupta.
