Animation is a dynamic, participatory, and transdisciplinary medium of expression and communication. It finds its application across media and in diverse contexts, be it in short films, art installations, infographics, education, apps, and many more. The modes of production are many and the lines between live-action, animation, and computer-generated imagery have become increasingly blurred. At Srishti Manipal, we consider animation a broad range of practices in manipulated moving images. The animation program is a learning space for self-driven students who are keen on pursuing a line of inquiry and developing their practice in moving-image arts.
The MA program provides a framework to support research and the taking forward of one’s practice in animation to newer levels of fluency and sophistication. The curriculum provides strategic inputs in research methods, animation techniques, film language, storytelling, image-making processes, and several opportunities for independent skill enhancement. Students can explore and develop personal styles, artistic visions, and voices depending on their particular lines of inquiry. The focus is on achieving ease and expertise in using the language of animation to pose relevant questions and address diverse topics of interest.
