Advanced Diploma in 2D/3D Animation & Game Art
TGC, A ladder to the heights of career in ANIMATION AND DIGITAL MEDIA.
An excellent training center having a liaison with a dense network of Animation studios and media creative companies, At TGC, we offer training in a state-of-the-art set up by an expert bunch of faculty.
TGC’s Animation curriculums dwells on learning with experimenting. Starting with the hardcore 2D classical traditional animation, students also gets hands on sculpturing and claymation. Various workshops on Acting and Expressions, gesture drawing, digital BG & storyboarding let student develop 2D short film right during the course.
At TGC we nurture hardcore 3D talent by providing students detailed knowledge of organic modelling, Game modelling, texturing, material, lighting, rigging and animation through specialised faculty having years of vertical experience.
