The ACT training methodology is a proprietory training methodology only associated with Arena Animation - Chowringhee. This training methodology focuses on conceptual training instead of tool based training.
The conceptual training refers to the preproduction part wherein storyboarding, visualization, design and research forms an integral part of the training process. This lays the foundation for the student.
In animation, the knowledge of 2D Animation principles is a must with traditional skills of acting, spacing, posing, lip-sync, research etc. We teach our students to be proud of being animators and the animation that they do. They have a responsibility as animators, as artists. Art moving in time telling a story is animation.
In this training methodology we encourage the students to do a lot of experimental work through workshops etc. wherein they get a feel of different mediums like clay, sand, puppet and other forms of cut out and stop motion animation.
At the end of the course the student has to prepare a short animation film which includes storyboarding, sketching, drawing, key framing, in-betweening, cleanup, line testing, ink & paint, adding sound, dialogues & video editing.
