June 2019, an exciting adventure begins with the launch of DICE VFS – School of Entertainment Arts in Mumbai. A collaboration between Vancouver Film School, Canada and the Innovation Trust, Mumbai.
As Adjunct Program Director for the Animation and Visual Effects Program in India, I am responsible for the adaptation / development and delivery of the program. The course curricula is defined by the Vancouver Film School, Canada and has been adapted into a 3 year degree program for India.
We have introduced Production Management, Drawing Fundamentals and Sculpting as 3 mainstream subjects for the 1st semester along with Media Studies and Animation. The emphasis in this semester is on holistic visual story development and storytelling skills along with the technical aspects of story, script and screenplay writing for Animation.
I have designed and am also teaching an Elective (Productivity, Communication and Ethics) to the 4th year students of Product Design, Interior Design and Fashion Design of the Indian School of Design and Innovation (ISDI).
