  • Annie Hsu

    Fantastic teacher, I definitely appreciated his prompt feedback and willingness to answer any questions and his positive supportive attitude.

  • Jagrut Kaptan

    I improved very well in terms of Maya modelling and the production workflow. I was not very confident and well learnt in terms of it. I have a better idea of the workflow now.

  • Daria Lezucha

    The course greatly improved my skills and I would strongly recommend it to others looking to start careers in the field. The personal feedback videos (from Vidya) every week were really helpful and critical for improving even further. I also really enjoyed that all classes were live and we could ask questions during them.

  • Andre da Silva

    It gave me a better understanding of the pipeline of production modelling. There is a lot to think about when you’re modelling and this course helped me focus on those key points
