Gaming & Animation industry is looking for talents in 2D/3D animations, graphics design, game design, game programming, 3D modelling, storyboarding, texture and VFX. Your own artistic skills and hardwork along with proper mentoring can bring great results, no doubt.

Choosing a right institute for Gaming & Animation is not that easy as finding a good Engineering or Medical college. As mentioned above, mentoring is one of the top factors which brings success in this industry. So, choose an institute where the faculties are from the industry, with hands-on experience. Talk to them, understand how passionate are they, ask them to show some works done by them.

Next would be the Lab, you would be spending 90% of your time in the lab with latest software and hardware. Performance is most important in Gaming & Animation, make sure the Lab is equipped with fast computers and graphic cards along with leading software packages.
