About Us

“Animation can explain whatever the mind of man can conceive. This facility makes it the most versatile and explicit means of communication yet devised for quick mass appreciation.” ~Walt Disney Company A blend of entertainment industry and technology, it is concerned with design, drawing, layout and production of graphically rich and attractive multimedia clips. The field of animation is sometimes misunderstood with cartooning. Cartooning is simply drawing caricatures of characters. On the other hand, animation is the art with which inanimate objects are brought to life with the help of various modern computer based sequencing techniques.
