STUDENT SPEAK

"It was very challenging to get ‘happy’ feedback from your mentor in a constructive sense, which I felt was great. They kept inspiring and encouraging us constantly, so you still had the spirit left even after a big ‘shot-thrashing’. The part I enjoyed the most was socializing with the mentor and squeezing them for info, hands down. Then the guest lectures are brilliant. I would recommend Native Puppets faster than you can blink an eye!"

Milad Thaha, Dubai / India

"Learning experience at Native Puppets is great! Mentors are very supportive and encourage trying new things. This program provides the right knowledge required by the Animation industry and that too at an affordable cost as compared to other programs. I enjoy the video feedback, & the live Q&A session is very exciting ... because of that, I get to learn more and more...Learning is fun here in this program, and the website is also good, love to interact with the other members and share work with them. Mentors are also very friendly and supportive."

Rajesh Kalyadappu, Mumbai

"This is like a great opportunity for me that i am learning from the best and the experienced animators of our industry...and the thing which i really liked about NP is, your mentor will always try to refine and work on your idea and will try to get the best output from it rather than changing the idea. In this way I learnt a lot of new things about storytelling and performance and the guest lectures are also very helpful and exciting part of the course"

Amit Mohanta , Bangalore

"It’s been great till now. My mentor has been very supportive in giving feedback and pushing me to get more out of my shot. I considered other online programs but found them very expensive and given the state of the rupee-dollar equation, Native Puppets made affordable sense. I enjoy the entire learning process - shooting references,blocking, splining my animation,polishing and the live Q&A’s. Since the feedbacks for other students are all recorded, I benefit from learning from other students mistakes as well. I will surely suggest Native Puppets to my friends interested to learn Character Animation."

Sahas Hegde , Mangalore

"My experience so far with Native Puppets has been really amazing and I have learnt a lot of new concepts in 3d animation here. I first came to know about Native Puppets from my husband. Though I have done a few courses earlier in 3d animation, it is here in Native Puppets that I really could map the concepts of 2d animation in 3d environment and had a thorough understanding of the basic concepts. The entire process of this course is fun because you can work on your assignments wherever you are and at whatever time you can and still do any other personal work you have in the day. I would definitely recommend this program to a lot of people who are looking to study animation, because this is the first of its kind online course in India and feels promising than any other institutes and courses."

Srikrupa Sriram, Bangalore

"My learning experience at Native Puppets has been really good so far. I opted for the program, as it was more affordable. The learning process I enjoy the most is planning & blocking an assignment. I am also satisfied with the mentor’s feedback that I have received on my shots."

Mitesh Mhatre , Mumbai

"Even being in the industry for quiet long time and already knowing a lot about animation…now being at NP,I am learning lots of new stuff i might not have thought of…specially the Live sessions being my favorite where I can interact with my mentor. I'm married, have a family and working in a studio in Mumbai and still its not that difficult to manage - since its all online. Even the time slots are designed keeping the working professionals in mind. I prefer Native Puppets as the mentors and the program curriculum is to international standards and best part - its online."
