Frequently Asked Questions

What are the pre-requisites for learning Animation or Visual Effects?

The minimum qualification required for an animation course is a Creative Mindset. A student should also have basic knowledge in computers. Apart from that, dedication, passion & hard work is essential and is key to a successful techno artiste. You can make a career in animation irrespective of your academic background. Your professional skills developments are our responsibility.

 

Do you help students with job placement after graduation?

We give full placement assistance to students. From time to time various Animation Studios, Production & Post Production houses approach us with their manpower requirements. Based on that, we organize campus placement drives all over the country which aims to interface the students with these studios. It is important to mention that the student's demo reel/portfolio along with their inter-personal and soft skills play key in enabling successful placement. It is your work that will speak for you. Frameboxx is proud to have placed students at various top production houses in the country including Paprikaas Interactive, Prime Focus, Rhythm & Hues and more.

 

What kind of diploma or certificate will I receive upon graduating?

On completion of the final submission project the student will be issued a diploma/merit certificate along with a course transcript. All RedBoxx programme students would be awarded a Frameboxx Diploma. Redboxx 2 in addition carries 120 undergraduate credits awarded by the prestigious Cambridge school of Art at the Anglia Ruskin University. The GreenBoxx programmes on the other hand are certificate courses. In addition to the above, all awarded certificates carry a Transcript ID which can be used by anyone, especially potential employers to verify the authenticity of the certificate online.

 

How important is having a Diploma in the Animation Industry?

In the Animation & Visual Effects Industry, the most important asset for a student is his/her demo reel or work portfolio. Being a techno-creative industry, it is one's quality of work that holds maximum value. Academic certifications, degrees and diplomas are secondary assets and are not primary ingredients for a successful placement/job at a studio. Therefore it is necessary for each and every student to devote time and passion to learning Animation so as to sharpen their skills to a high degree of professionalism.

 

If I want to go abroad for studies in animation, will this course help me?

The Anglia Ruskin University accreditation carries an actual academic advantage enabling students to get real benefits when pursuing professional prospects abroad or for furthering their education. Most of the Universities/colleges abroad prefer students with foundation or intermediate knowledge in animation. This course will make you aware of the tools & techniques used in Animation & Visual Effects. Also at the time of applying to colleges abroad, students are required to submit a show reel/portfolio and often appear for evaluator exams. At the end of every course, student makes his or her own profile using the software & techniques, which would be very helpful at the time of admission. Frameboxx also offers the widely acclaimed Degree in Animation (A PG Course) programme from Seneca Institute of Applied Arts & Technology, Canada which is conducted partly in India and the rest in Canada.

 

Is a traditional arts/fine arts background required to learn animation?

An immensely debated point, you can indeed become a successful animator without being a traditional artist. However, traditional art and fundamental aesthetics are key for becoming an ace and consequently separates the men from the boys. Therefore, our courses have a Pre-Production and traditional art module that is aimed at developing core fundamental aesthetics and art skills before even going close to computer software. We believe in developing strong fundamental skills before becoming a digital animator/artist.
