The Anil Ambani group has forayed into animation education by launching the Big Animation Infotainment and Media School or Big Aims, a training institute in Pune.
"Big Aims is unique and a first-of-its kind," said Ashish Kulkarni, chief executive of Big Animation, the group company that launched the project and made the animated TV series "Little Krishna".
"It will be a big leap for freshers, amateurs and aspirants to migrate to a much higher level of training practised by major Hollywood studios like Dreamworks," Kulkarni told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
"We will train them and groom them to help learn the basics and principles of storytelling in animation and feature films," he added.
Starting June, Big Aims offers professional full-time one-year advanced courses in three-dimensional and two-dimensional films, as well as pre-production and post-production work.
