About The Course

Hollywood & Bollywood films use VFX to produce awesome effects & realistic environments in films. Through visual effects, the artists can make interesting things happen in movies – bomb blasts, natural disasters, flying objects, superpowers, etc. – that are difficult or impossible to shoot in real life.


The Indian VFX industry is expected to be worth 6350 crores by 2020*.

Salaries are good for the right person. If you wish to join this industry, you have to create high-quality visual effects (VFX) for films, TV, advertisements & games. To join this industry, learn the right skills and get the right training with the VFX Pro program from Arena Animation
