The Animation Film Design discipline at NID seeks to hone and mentor the visual storytelling skills of young students through the medium of moving images. Students are encouraged to tap into the rich tradition of storytelling, art forms, music and sounds from the Indian subcontinent. With a strong emphasis on traditional drawing and animation skills coupled with the latest digital animation techniques, the discipline aims to educate students to create original short animation films and graphic novels.
