Talking to AnimationXpress.com Rajiv Chilaka, MD & Founder of Green Gold Animation shared, “Having Tomasz Walczak join our team is the next major step in evolution of Green Gold Academy of Animation. We have been cooperating with Tomasz Walczak since 2006, he knows Green Gold and its culture and therefore with his strong management and leadership skills he is an apt choice for the position of CEO of Green Gold Academy of Animation. We could not be happier with our choice.”60 students have already graduated from GGAA. Most of the students who have graduated so far have been placed in Green Gold Animation. The rest have either joined other Hyderabad Studios or have gone for higher studies. GGAA gives 100% support to the students in placements, whether it’s their own studio or any other studio.
When asked about the faculty at GGAA Tomasz Walczak replied, “Our faculty is part of the current production team at Green Gold and has in-depth knowledge of the art and techniques used in animation. Our methodology is such that students on completion of the courses offered are industry ready to face the demands of the real world and are not limited by software alone. We also have guest lectures from various Production heads. All this is done under the able guidance of our Dean for the Academy, Ross Adorable who has over 30 years of experience in the field of animation”.
Prior to joining Telemedia LLC, Tomasz Walczak worked in the web development field during the Internet boom of early 2000’s.
As for the future plans of GGAA Tomasz asserts, “We plan to introduce more courses in Fine Arts, Photography, Video Editing, Music and Design apart from our 1 year diploma in 2D / 3D Animation, B.G Digital Painting, Post Production & Web and Graphic Design. We plan to team up with schools to add animation as a subject in the academic curriculum. We also plan weekend hobby courses for working people. We create unified program to develop better academy franchise program. We already have our GGAA franchise in Pune (VEDA) and Dehradun (ITM)”.
