About Frameboxx

Frameboxx Animation & Visual Effects is a versatile conglomerate with a focus on providing high end computer graphics, animation and visual effects training services. Started in 2007 by a team of management and technical evangelists with over ten years of experience in the Animation production and training domain, Frameboxx offers a wide array of training programs aimed at producing high quality trained manpower to fuel India's rapidly growing Animation & Visual Effects industry. In early 2008, the company received backing and support from former CMD Ad labs, Mr. Manmohan Shetty and Mr. Chandir Gidwani, Promoter, Centrum Capital Ltd. who picked up a majority stake in the conglomerate.

 

In a market that is saturated by animation training providers, Frameboxx brings fresh energy and innovation and a commitment to quality that is unparalleled. Our objective to venture into training and education stems from our years of industry experience coupled with extensive research and analysis of various trends which were affecting animation training quality in the country. Our research dictated the need to single out skills during training to create techno-artistes and specialists. This led to the development of India's first ever skill set specialization based program which enables a student to pursue his domain of interest and develop a strong skill around it. This also meant that students not only perform better but strive to perfect their skill and become specialists. Our specialization training curriculum has been carefully designed with a global perspective in mind and offers the latest in technology and technique.

 

We pay extra emphasis to the fact that training curriculums require constant and ongoing development which is founded upon long hours of research and interaction with the industry. This coupled with an integrated instructor development and training program which ensures that our highly talented teams of instructors are always kept at the helm of technology and are equipped with the finest techno-creative skills translates into the next generation of highly talented artists who are charged up to handle the most challenging production scenarios right from day one.

 

360 Degrees of Innovation

Frameboxx believes in innovation which is truly reflected in our diverse verticals which are aimed at providing a complete all around learning experience across diverse media.

 

1) Classroom Based Training

Our primary domain of operations involves imparting high quality training across a network of more than 40 state of the art training facilities across India and abroad.

 

These facilities are equipped with the latest in technical infrastructure such as high end animation workstations, projector based lecture theatres and auditoriums in addition to specialized facilities such as sound editing labs etc. at some locations. All our facilities feature the finest and most experienced techno-creative instructors in India who are not only handpicked from the finest in India but are also specialized to handle our unique specialization based curriculum.

 

2) The Incubation Centre

A revolutionary concept which is centred around providing a true production level work experience to the students as an industry internship before they venture into their professional lives. This unique facility is based in Mumbai, India and has been designed like a real world production studio with complete infrastructure to support and handle real world animation projects and is managed and governed by a panel of seasoned industry professionals. Ever since its inception in early 2008, the facility has churned out an animated episode and promos for a television channel in addition to numerous other projects which are currently in production. Students are handpicked from across Frameboxx centres and undergo specialized training before being put on production tasks for a period of 4 - 5 months after which they participate in an integrated campus placement drive having earned professional experience and credits on their demo reel. This unique vertical is highly sought after by independent animation film makers and freelancers who are on the lookout for high quality and economical production facility that encourages their concepts and helps them realize their projects.

Quality Services and Global Alliances

Our quality speaks for itself and we're happy that our global associates bear testament to our commitment.

 

In 2008, Frameboxx signed a definitive agreement with the prestigious Cambridge Art School at the Anglia Ruskin University, UK for the purposes of accreditation of courses and for implementing international quality standards in animation education in India. As a part of this agreement, the university also awarded internationally recognized credit points to a Frameboxx course enabling students to pursue higher education and explore job opportunities abroad.

 

Later this year, we signed an agreement with the prestigious Seneca Institute of Applied Arts and Technology, Canada to offer Post Graduate Certificate Program in Animation & Visual Effects in India. This two term programme is offered partly in India under expert guidance from our senior most technical team and in part at the Seneca campus in Toronto, Canada.

 

In an effort to provide world class training, Frameboxx has also joined hands with visual effects veteran Steve Wright, who has more than 20 years of experience in the visual effects industry and is the author of several books on compositing and visual effects and is regarded as one of the world's foremost authority on Nuke and Shake.

 

As a part of this tie-up, Steve has designed India's first ever Nuke compositing curriculum for Frameboxx and is also involved in several other strategic initiatives.

 

Frameboxx also has a tie-up with the world's foremost online creative jobs site - CreativeHeads.net which enables our students to explore job opportunities from some of the top companies from across the globe. Using this facility, students of Frameboxx have free access to creating an online portfolio on CreativeHeads.net where they can upload demo reels, create an electronic resume and can search through thousands of job openings and also apply there. As a part of this tie-up, CreativeHeads also promotes exclusive free access to Frameboxx student profiles to its huge database of employers.

 

We believe good companies are created by good people and we take pride in our team and our alliances that've been instrumental in putting Frameboxx right at the helm of high quality animation training services in India.
