Q: Should I take CPEP ( Certification in Pre- Production ) courses instead of Traditional Arts college classes?
A: CPEP ( Certification in Pre- Production ) has been designed to be an all-encompassing source of character animation instruction for our students. However, traditional art classes such as figure drawing, sculpting, etc., would be your extremely valuable companions. Nevertheless if you are a good artist and creative in your outlook, you can master this specialization.
This program will start with sharpening your artist skills to make your art foundation very strong and will continue to provide in depth understanding of pre-production process for both 2d as well as 3d production. The learning takes you through the intricate process of how the film gets ready as you journey the character from the drawing table ruffs followed by turnaround drawings and analyzing the basic geometry in modeling and the refined curves and lines that make the character jump to life and similarly working the suitable color and textures that complete the look and feel of the character as a final digital actor! The other part of the journey is to understand the film making process as small thumbnail drawings spark off a simple or epic scaled storyboard and the stage is set for the adventure. This journey also focuses on detailing the color and mood boards and bringing to life a well lived in environment that becomes the set or locale where our film is to be pictured! Whatever you learn, you will have to impart in an actual project during the course of 3 months internship. At the end of the course a group of students or individual would be able to develop an entire pre-production for a project.
Q: Can I get feedback more than once on a particular assignment or a task?
A: Absolutely! You will quickly find that multiple critiques, trouble shooting, personal guidance are one of the unique features of our program. The sessions are built in such a manner, you will encounter a problem and you will have to brainstorm to overcome/find solutions for it, This will lead you to interact with our faculties more than once.
Q: What if I need to go on vacation? Do I miss out those classes?
A: YES. If it is 2 or 3 days you can always take back up classes, if it is more than 3 days then you have to wait for the subsequent batch to come to cover the classes.
Q: How to apply, can anyone join the course?
A: We have different program eligibility criteria; it is mentioned in our course overview. However for most of our digital programs, the student intake will be based on Skill Level / Portfolio / Entrance Test / Foundation Course of the relevant subject. Submitting a portfolio or demo reel is not mandatory. We also feel strongly that if someone has a positive attitude and the eagerness to learn, they have the potential to be a solid animator, and we will provide opportunity to students with high creative and technical understanding whether from prior engagements or self taught.
