Industry Appreciation

At this amazing Institute, the foundation course enables animators to attain a high level of visual literacy, and to have access to other aspects of filmmaking including the rich tradition of story-telling and cinematography in particular.

Shelley Page | Head, International Outreach, DreamWorks Animation

Excellence in creative art education is about shaping skills in ‘story-telling’ that strikes simultaneously at the head and the heart! It is about grooming young talent to execute conventional stories in exceptional ways. It moulds attitude while teaching the best generation of filmmakers to blend the arts and the sciences. Whistling Woods International exemplifies this excellence.

Biren Ghose | President, ABAI and Country Head, Technicolor

It’s great to see animators commence their animation education starting with the basics of live-action filmmaking. Whistling Woods International has laid a perfect foundation for these students. We have had students interning with us for four month-long periods over the past 2 years now. The quality of their work is ratified by the fact that all my creative and technical directors are desperately waiting for the next batch of interns to arrive. Working with animators who bring with them a unique filmmaking perspective is an absolute pleasure.
