Since the company’s inception in 2005, our focus has always been on achieving the highest quality standards.

With over 60 creative individuals and state of the art machines to support their visions, Pixelloid is ready to take on any visual feast. For the past 10 years, we have seen tremendous growth in both size and reputation, as more than 100 Motion pictures, Commercials and other visualization industries have utilized Pixelloid’s unequalled artistry.

Pixelloid provides services for the following verticals: 3D Animation | Visual Effects | Design | Pre-Visualization | Architectural / Medical Visualisations | Corporate Presentations | Interactive E-learning

Some of Pixelloid’s prestigious projects include high profile regional feature films like S/o. Satyamurthy, Bale Bale Magadivoy, Atharintiki Daredhi, Gopala Gopala, Action 3D (First Telugu 3D film), Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu, Julayi, Sri Rama Rajyam, The Businessman, Oosaravelli, Khaleja, Magadheera and commercials like Ford Mustang, McDonalds, Amrutanjan, Thumps-up and Fantac.

But growth brought with it the urgent need for quality talent. We scouted for potential candidates but the talent pool was falling far short of our expectations and the numbers were just not enough to feed Pixelloid’s planned growth. We decided that if we couldn’t find it, we’d create it.

This was the genesis of our training institute.

Our training is unique

proxim

The biggest unique point is our production department. Ours is the only training institute in India that has an active production environment.

Pixelloid’s courses are tailored to the requirements of the industry. While most institutes focus on teaching software, we emphasize a combination of creative artistry and ground-breaking technology.

Students receive hands-on training on live projects, with minimal theory classes, thereby exposing them to practical production processes. This synergy between production and education, live experience and class-room training, is what makes Pixelloid a pioneer, setting it apart from its competitors. We gear students to be production-ready at the outset itself, thus dramatically improving their career prospects.

Pixelloid has already gained a reputation within the industry for focusing more on quality than on quantity. All courses are capped at 12 studentper class, assuring students of personalized training.

Pixelloid’s faculty consists of experienced professionals from within its production department. Students are taught not just by dedicated faculty but also by industry experts willing to share their expertise and experience. When students are taught a particular course and software—for instance Autodesk Maya for 3D Animation—they are exposed to multiple trainers and artists from our VFX production division, each an expert in different modules. This gives students a holistic view and knowledge of the software.

Chadalawada Chandrasekhar (Education Head & Faculty) has over 15 years of industry experience and worked in prestigious projects like Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. He was the Maya team lead for Sainikudu, which won the Nandi Award for Best Visual Effects. Rama Rao Kuchi (Compositing Supervisor & Faculty) has over 12 years of experience in the film industry and is the head of our compositing department. His portfolio includes well-known domestic and Hollywood films.

Each student is provided a dedicated Workstation in the classroom, which have aesthetic interiors, central air-conditioning and high-resolution projectors.
