Maya Academy of Advanced Cinematics (MAAC) is the academic wing of Maya Entertainment Ltd.(MEL), a premier 3D Animation and Visual Effects house based in Mumbai. MEL's board consists of highly reputable names such as Intel, Enam Financial, Bhukanvala Holdings and Concept Communications etc.
MAAC took shape in 2001 with an in-house facility at MEL and a parallel setup in North India with the intent to provide high quality education in 3D Animation and Visual Effects. In a short span of six years, we've grown up to a network of more than 70 academic centers spread across India and Middle East. We also have the largest number of Autodesk certified training centers (ATCs) as well as certified instructors in India.
More recently, our courses have earned the quality validation from the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). The training programmes at MAAC are accompanied by live projects and regular workshops and seminars conducted by experts from across the animation industry.
We take great pride in our intuitive teaching philosophy which is centered around concepts and techniques so as to lay a strong foundation for a practical techno-artist who is well versed in both technology and concepts.
Today, ‘animation’ is no more restricted to Cartoon Characters only. Remember that mind-blowing scene from Godzilla, where the beast's tail swings, savagely reducing New York skyscrapers to little mounds of rubble? Or the one from The Mask where Jim Carrey's eyeballs pop out and his tongue comes lashing out of his mouth as he watches Cameron Diaz crooning in a nightclub? Hollywood blockbusters like Jurassic Park , Independence Day, Tomb Raider or Harry Potter could not have been successful without the involvement of quality computer graphics.
