Maya Digital Studios, a pioneer in the art & technology of animation and visual effects since 1990s; recently took the Indian animation industry by storm with its path-breaking in-studio training initiative MIST. Launched with much fanfare at an event in Mumbai a few months ago, MIST had scores of aspiring industry professionals who thronged the event to be a part of this first of its kind in-studio training module initiated by Maya.
Speaking on the occasion, Aruna Kumar – Head of MIST said, “MIST is the perfect launch platform for young studio professionals; as it gives them the experience of actual production work, right at the beginning of their studio careers, laying the foundation of a successful and well experienced entrance into this industry. The response that we have received for MIST has just attested the need for an ‘in the studio, on the job’ training underlining various benefits that the MIST interns are getting out of the programme.”
Within barely four months of operations, MIST has already opened doors for the studio careers of over 160 budding animation, visual effects & 3D stereoscopy aspirants. Maya Digital Studios has recently forayed into 2D Animation. MIST gives opportunities for young 2D Animation professionals to function in the live production experience as they begin their studio careers. She further added.
MIST was started off as a strategic initiative by Maya in order to create an advance skilled workforce that will drive the future of this industry. Also the fact that Maya is currently working on several projects became an added incentive for the MIST interns since they get the opportunity to work on some of the biggest projects in the industry today. From Motu Patlu, Maya’s first 3D Animated TV series for the Indian market, Sholay 3D to its ambitious 2D Animation projects. Several aspirants are still awaiting their turns to work on the live projects while Maya is adding wings to the studio dreams of many future professionals of this dynamic industry.
