Filmmakers now have a wealth of fresh creative choices because of the revolutionary impact that visual effects have had on Indian filmmaking. Our understanding of storytelling is changing as a result of the employment of visual effects in films like Baahubali: The Beginning, RRR, Brahmastra: Part One: Shiva, and Avatar.
Commenting at the launch of the institute, Producer and Director Luv Ranjan said, “In my opinion, The VFX is no longer a luxury for a director; it has become an integral part of the whole storytelling process. Nowadays, the VFX is an important tool that gives us the freedom to imagine and create. I think India is an important market in the VFX industry and plays an integral part in the supply chain. It is my belief that soon it will shift from being just a player to the leader and become the epicentre of VFX in the world, immensely benefiting the young generation that wants to enter this ever-evolving world.”
The VFX Institute is backed by the Visual Birds Studio, a fast-growing studio working on multiple big projects and creating cutting-edge visual effects for enhanced storytelling experiences. While speaking at the launch, Amit Malviya, Creative Director, Visual Birds Studio, said, “In the last few years we have been facing a constant crunch of talented professionals, and we wanted to fill this gap. Therefore, we decided to put our support behind this great idea where the professionals are trained as per the requirements of the industry and are job-ready within a few months.”
The VFX Institute has developed a strategy to rethink visual effects training to fit the contemporary needs of Indian cinema in order to close the gap between industry requirements and educational offers. In contrast to other programs, The VFX Institute offers students and industry professionals a thorough curriculum that raises the bar for visual effects education. An artist can become marketable, have a job lined up, and put what theyve learned into practice, all at a fair price, in as little as 6 to 8 months.
Students who learn by practice are more likely to acquire both technical know-how and an artistic sensibility, enabling them to produce visually striking results and bring their innovative concepts to life. The VFX Institute offers lifetime career support and a 100% job guarantee.
The VFX Institute strives to address the industrys increasing need for qualified VFX artists by offering top-notch instruction, exposure to the business, and hands-on training, enabling students to make important contributions to the Indian film and media industries.
According to the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and Confederation of Indian Industries (CII), India is predicted to control 20-25% of the worldwide AVGC (Animation, Visual Effects, Gaming, and Comics) sector.
By 2025, this burgeoning industry is expected to provide 75,000 to 125,000 jobs, contributing significantly to Indias media and entertainment (M&E) industrys projected 2030 growth to a USD 100 billion (8.2 lakh crore) market. Indian cinema has the ability to create films on par with Hollywood with the appropriate talent. To address the rising demand for VFX, educating and developing a talented pool of artists who can contribute to this sector is crucial.
