Student Says about MAAC

“Courses at MAAC are at par with industry standards. They train you in all the software used for creating stunning VFX movies we see today.”

I joined MAAC in 2006 after completing my degree in computer engineering. With the guidance of my faculty I applied for an apprentice program at Rhythm & Hues Studios. This was the beginning of my career in the VFX industry. Four years later I went to Singapore to join Double Negative Visual Effects where I worked on some of the best movies in the world. I also worked on a number of ad films for renowned brands.

MAAC is a great institute for those who are serious & passionate about learning. Events like 24FPS will help you learn about managing & executing from concept to delivery, and teach you the importance of teamwork.

No doubt, training at MAAC will set the foundation for a successful VFX career.

“Without the support of my trainers at MAAC, I would not have reached where I am right now.”

My mind was set on the visual effects & animation industry from my graduation days, unlike most of my friends who pursued MBA or a career in the IT industry. So I enrolled at MAAC. The course covered all aspects of visual effects & animation, and taught the latest software. The faculty was really supportive & knowledgeable. I was placed at Rhythm & Hues Studios in Mumbai where I started as a roto-paint artist. I worked on several high-end Hollywood films. Our team won the Oscar for Best Visual Effects for The Golden Compass & Life of Pi. After Rhythm & Hues, I got an offer from Base FX, Beijing, China. My current project at Base FX is Agent Carter, a new series by Marvel.
