NEW DELHI: The first-of-its-kind educational initiative in Bengaluru referred to as ‘Train the Trainers’ has been launched by the Association of Bangalore Animation Industry (ABAI), the largest non-profit association to promote animation in India.

The programme commenced on 21 April but interested candidates will be enrolled during this week as well. The programme is actively supported by Department of IT, BT, S&T of the Government of Karnataka.

 The state government through its KAVGC policy 1.0 is aimed at improving the educational infrastructure of the AVGC (Animation, Visual Effects, Gaming and Comics) industry. In order to improve the quality of the trainers in the AVGC industry, and thereby improving the overall quality of education imparted, TTT programme aims at bringing together national and international trainers to facilitate the training in different modules of various stages of production.

 The TTT program, chaired by ABAI secretary Ankur Bhasin, CEO of Bhasinsoft, is envisaged to provide an academically challenging educational experience through effective teaching, research and service, enabling candidates to acquire understanding, knowledge and skills necessary for establishing successful career in teaching and becoming responsible trainers within the animation industry.

"The TTT is an innovation on jump-starting the quality of educational initiative on the digital arts environment. It assesses the pain point of who will impart new media arts learning. It will help plug a major gap in growing a talent that needs tens of thousands of employees over the next 3 to 5 years." ABAI country head, technicolor India and president Biren Ghose.

 The candidates who enroll for this programme stand to gain not only six months of high-quality training but also a chance to work on live projects in a professional studio environment. This will enable the candidates to learn teaching techniques such as creative teaching methodology, class-room management, and all other aspects of AVGC.

“TTT program, in its initial offering, starts with a concentrated batch of 12 candidates per batch to ensure that there is no dilution in the quality of imparted training. A separate Executive TTT course is also offered for working faculties who prefer weekend classes” says Bhasin.

He added, “In my studio, Bhasinsoft, and across the industry it is seen that a large amount of good talent comes from tier 2 and tier 3 hence TTT is also planned in a way to reward trainers in the program with cash incentive for training in these cities.”

 Institutes stand to benefit that the candidates will be able bring the exposure and knowledge to impart quality training to students. The teaching methodology, which is a combination of a learner-centred interactive methodology and a project-based teaching, will help bridge the gap between Institute and Industry. A better education quality is bound to improve the students' placement record, which will further enhance the reputation of Institute.

 The programme will be offered in two formats.

1. Standard TTT Program aims to up skill candidates who are looking to enter the AVGC industry as trainers as well as 0 - 6 month of experienced current trainers/ artist in Studio.

  Duration: 6 months (5 Days a week).

2. Executive TTT Program aims to up skill candidates who have 1 or more years working experience in the AVGC industry as trainers.

 Duration: 8 months (1 Week per Month / Weekend Classes).

Guest speakers from renowned studios and industry experts will train the candidates on various disciplines; profound understanding will be given of the fundamentals such as design and aesthetics, storytelling and acting. The programme will have overall technical brush up and up scaling of skills at three stages viz. Pre-production, Production, Post Production; Detailed analysis and activities to understand the industry Pipeline and Work Flow management; Practical work experience at associated Studios / Production houses; Individual project based on specialization and group project for understanding and experiencing team dynamics; and Personal Development through mock lectures and group evaluations.

“Indian AVGC industry is growing at a rapid pace – not only because of larger quantity of Hollywood content being worked on in India but also because of a growing domestic market. The Animation, VFX & Post Production market has grown from Rs 35.3 billion in 2012 to Rs 39.7 billion in 2013 and is expected to add over 40,000 jobs in the coming 3-4 years. For the growth to sustain and further enhance, it is imperative that the quality of students being trained improves which in turn is a result of the quality of trainers imparting the training. Hence, TTT directly addresses the need of the hour.” Ankur emphasized.
