Advance Visual & Special Effects

From liquid splashes in TV commercials to Los Angeles sinking in the movie “2012, from dragons spewing fire in the “Game of Thrones” to Thanos from “Avengers” disintegrating into dust particles, everything nowadays is done through the use of visual and special effects. The success of these films has encouraged filmmakers to invest in effects-heavy films. Computer generated imagery (CGI) has become more affordable and easy to use through the animation and compositing software now available in the market. Film makers have moved towards using these new age techniques which provide realistic imagery and avoid expensive, dangerous and time consuming options of live shooting. From creating natural calamities like earthquakes, floods, tornados to imaginative scenarios like men walking on water, everything that can be imagined can now be created. Our students are trained in this creative and limitless platform to deliver such effects for games, TV commercials, web series and movies.
