Toonz Animation Academy inaugurated in Mumbai

Toonz Animation Academy was inaugurated in Mumbai by Harshvardhan Patil, Minister of State for Women and Child Development, Government of Maharashtra. The academy will be the first-of-its-kind in the country with cutting-edge infrastructure, industry current workstations, international faculty, and a comprehensive global curriculum.

P Jayakumar, CEO, Toonz, said, “Setting up an academy in Mumbai was on the cards for a long time as Mumbai is the biggest entertainment hub in the country.” He further explained that the animation industry was facing a dearth of trained talent, and the growing demand-supply gap in manpower availability was hampering its growth. “The new academy is a step in the right direction to solve this problem,” said Jayakumar.

Veteran animation professionals from across the world will visit the academy campus to conduct classes. The curriculum includes personality development programmes, acting classes, and classes on evolving trends. The academy has advanced animation labs, which will provide students with convenient access to state-of-the-art digital media equipments.

Commenting on the launch, Patil said, “With an enviable record of growth across the globe, Toonz has the ability to produce quality professionals for the industry, and eventually contribute towards the advancement of our country.”

Toonz Animation Academy will leverage its strong industry network to help students find suitable positions in reputed multimedia studios and companies. Rama Prasad, Executive Director, Toonz Academy, said, “The academy is on an expansion mode and the facility in Mumbai is the first in a series of groundbreaking initiatives planned for the future.” He added that the academy was planning to open centres in all key cities of India, with the next launch of the academy slated to be in Nagpur.

The courses offered by the academy are advanced programmes in classical and digital animation, advanced programme in 3D animation and digital arts, and several other certificate courses.
