Chroma Key Studio:

Chroma key compositing or chroma keying is a visual effects/post-production technique for compositing (layering) two images or video streams together based on colors (chroma range).

 Drawing Studio:

The department has spacious, ventilated and well-equipped Drawing Studio with a 60-inch LED TV and a work station. In the field of Animation drawing plays a vital role. It remains a central and pivotal activity to the work of many artists and designers – a touchstone and tool of creative exploration that informs visual discovery. It fundamentally enables the visualization and development of perceptions and ideas. With a history as long and intensive as the history of the culture, the act of drawing remains a fundamental means to translate, document, record and analyse the worlds we inhabit. The role of drawing in education remains critical and not just to the creative disciplines in art and design for which it is foundational.
