When two groups of veterans artists of two different art forms join hands to create an all comprising art form which is brought out in 2 & 3 dimensional images or moving pictures, the results are spectacular.

They have been working together for the past two years and have come up various short films, 2 & 3 dimensional creations, digital and computer generated graphics and animations. They have since trained many people in these art forms.

In the press meet, when Anurag Kulkarni and Pranay Naidu of Sa Digital and Lalit and Tanul Vikamshi of Alag Angle addressed the media person, almost all of them opined that, what one learns in Art College or MFS etc, one gets to learn a lot of theoretical knowledge, but the practical aspect of all forms of art is way different. Artists have an aesthetic acumen. They have a strong sense of opinion and are able to bring it out or project / display it on canvas or reel ina beautiful manner which a lay man can never do. However, some of what he has learnt has to be fine tuned and trained to bring out the perfect effect and conveying the idea or concept which the original director, writer or artist wanted to bring out. According to them the city has many talented persons, but all that is required is a perfect and appropriate platform to bring that out.
They are offering an personalized and customized course content that helps the individual come up with something brilliant.
What do they want? Well they want people who can make them proud by their work and someone who wants to fine-tune what he has learnt or acquired while pursuing a career in Media.
