Webel DQE Animation Academy
Webel DQE Animation Academy is a joint initiative of Webel – a 100% Government of West Bengal Undertaking and DQ Entertainment (International) Ltd., the largest animation studio in Asia.

The academy was launched in June’04 by WEBEL – West Bengal Electronics Industry Development Corporation Ltd. with the name and style ‘Toonz Webel Academy’ to bridge the gap between demand and supply of professionally trained quality animation professionals for the animation industry.

Recognizing the need for greater technical support and advancements in the animation scenario of the state, the Government of West Bengal deemed it necessary to invite DQE to join hands with Webel so as to offer superior animation training in this part of the country. Incidentally, along with this academy, DQE also set up the first high-end animation studio in the state, which is operational now.

The academy boasts of running a capacity of 600 students at a time in a 8500 sft state-of-the-art facility in Salt Lake, the IT hub of Kolkata. The institution, which offers a one-year course in 2D and 3D animation, aims to select, develop and train students to successfully compete in the evolving global animation market. The courses offered at the Academy put enough emphasis on the basic principles of classical animation along with all the components like sketching, anatomy study, acting etc., related to this form of creative art so as to build a strong foundation for the students. Of late, in addition to the regular 2D and 3D programs, the academy has introduced one year diploma program in digital Storyboarding and Digital Animation - Toon Boom Harmony™).

The strong industry linkages help the academy upgrade its curriculum as per the current trends and requirements of the entertainment industry.

Students emerged from this institution secured coveted jobs in top-notch production houses like Crest Animation, UTV Toons, DQ Entertainment, Prana Studio, Famous Studio, Graphiti, Tata Elxsi, Big Animation, Rhythm & Hues, Paprikaas, Prime Focus, Big Animation, Green Gold Animation, Blow Fish, Tata Interactive Systems … to name a few.

One of the hallmarks of Webel DQE is the fact that students from diverse social, economic and educational backgrounds have found their niche within the folds of one creative art form that they are all passionate about. So, here, you will find engineers, MBAs, art students, graduates of all streams or even those fresh out of school! This provides for a very rich and dynamic atmosphere within the classroom.

The academy with its very fast success record in meeting the demands of the industry, has the potential for gaining the stature of a Centre of Excellence for the Animation and Gaming Industry in the country.
