Maya Digital Studios to launch In-Studio Training on 11 August

MUMBAI: Maya Digital Studios, the studio that pioneered the art and technology of animation and visual effects in India in the 1990s, has started yet another ‘industry first‘ initiative where young animation, VFX & 3D stereoscopy professionals will undergo advanced training based on a Studio Ready Training Modules with employment at Maya‘s studio facilities in Mumbai and Goa. The, initiative by Maya called ‘Maya In Studio Training‘ (MIST), will be formally launched on 11 August in Mumbai.

Elaborating about MIST, Maya co-founder and director Deepa Sahi said, "Our focus at Maya has always been on artists and I‘m proud to say that even after so many years Maya is the dream place to be for any animation and visual effects artist- as the saying goes- "Your work is as good as the person behind the machine".

We are therefore committed to nurturing the men and women ‘behind‘ the machine! Hence we are now starting with the facility for a dedicated in studio training facility within the studio to create studio ready artists, who have the right blend of creativity & production skills."

Earlier, Maya had launched an academic training institute and created over 50000 animation and visual effects professionals in the Indian industry. At that time, the industry was new in India training was critical, which is when Maya decided to launch the training facility to create an animation and visual effects ecosystem in the country.

Elaborately, talking about MIST, Maya chairman & managing director Ketan Mehta stated, "As the training industry evolved for Animation & Visual Effects the focus shifted from creating artists to mass production. Thus, there was no focus on teaching them the studio skills and production processes to create consummate Techno-Artists in this field.

With Maya In Studio Training, MIST we are all set to fill in this gap that exists between Animation & Visual Effects training and the studio environment, between ‘knowing‘ and ‘doing‘. Freshers will work with studio veterans and learn while working on live projects at MIST."
