The four-year-long Bachelor of Design (B.Des.) in Animation Film Design programme is offered only at National Institute of Design Ahmedabad.
The Indian Animation industry is now opening up to original ideas to mark its own identity in the global animation map. For this, there is an ever-increasing demand for trained human resources and thinking minds as animators, content creators, and mentors. Animation programme at NID, since its inception, has always nurtured and mentored uniqueness both in the global and the local context. The objective of this programme is to enable students to find solutions to complex problems in various fields of communication design using animation film making as a creative medium.
An initial part of the 1st semester, students get introduced to basic design skills and topics for a broader understanding of subject and context of design education before they get introduced to knowledge areas pertaining to animation design in particular, as well as communication in its social and cultural contexts. In the later semesters, students are exposed to a workshop and project mode of learning where they experiment with various mediums (e.g. 2D,3D, Clay, Mixed Media, Pixilation, Experimental, Graphic Narratives, etc.) to tell animation stories of many kinds. In addition, for students’ experiential learning, cross-disciplinary campus life, NID Film Club, Action Analysis, Field Visits, Case Study and other interactive sessions always give a value-added experience.
