MAAC appoints McCann as creative AOR


MUMBAI: Maya Academy of Advanced Cinematics (MAAC), 3D animation and visual effects training academy, appointed McCann Erickson as its creative agency. This comes as a part of the recent restructuring MAAC has done to strengthen its business operations in India and abroad.

MAAC offers various courses in computer graphics, animation and visual effects.
