I am looking for an intense course in Maya that gives an indepth knowledge.
Arena Multimedia , Dilshuk Nagar, Hyderabad, India acquired ‘Auto Desk’ authorisation recently.
Please advise whether
i) the faculty will be specifically approved by AutoDesk
ii) Auto Desk themselves will give the certificate after completion of he course &
iii) how much such a certificate is valued by Anmation studios while recruiting for jobs with them
Honestly certification adds upto nothin’ much…studios will hire a self taught individual if his demo reel is awesome enough…certification!..i have my certificates somewhere…but have never, ever been asked for them. Another point here is…studios want “artists”, who use a specific tool…be it Maya, Max, XSI…etc…so autodesk certifyin’ an institute proves the factulty there know the tools…but are they clueful enough to teach you the artistic skills an’ touch you need to impress a studio?..that you have to decide for your self…if your interested…do check out “Takshaa”…Bangalore. What i seen come out from there is Impressive.
Hope that was sufficient feed back.
