Future Media Concepts (FMC), the nation's premier digital media training organization, today announced that it has opened a training facility in Mumbai. The new training facility, a partnership with neoteric infomatique ltd., will operate under the Evolve name to bring FMC's curriculum of vendor-authorized, digital media training courses, and world-renowned instructors to India's major cities.
The state-of-the-art, custom-designed Evolve training facility hosts digital training programs targeted at the region's rapidly growing creative community in TV, film, video, and Mac(R) IT.
"FMC continues to grow internationally both in events and in ATCs, and India is a huge yet embryonic market that deserves attention," said Ben Kozuch, FMC president and co-founder. "Mumbai is at the core of the Bollywood film industry, and as such is a major hub for TV and video production in the region. Having a facility in Mumbai will make training and certification that much easier for the editors and artists who use editing and post software every day."
The interactive classes include manufacturer-authorized courses in digital editing, Web design and development, motion graphics, desktop publishing, Mac IT, iOS and Android mobile app development, and 3D animation. Evolve is authorized by Adobe(R), Apple(R), Avid(R), and Autodesk(R). Evolve will also offer on-site training throughout the country.
As part of neoteric's value-added approach, which encompasses partner enablement and readiness for effective solution delivery to customers, training and certifications are key tools.
"With neoteric's expertise in distribution and core channel partner connect coupled with FMC's full repertoire of vendor-authorized courses will help fill a great and growing need for the digital artists in this part of the world," said Sanjay Jotwani, head of technology enabled services at neoteric infomatique ltd. "With India's vast film production industry, the growing adaption of fast Internet and Web video, and the upcoming transition to HD, there is a growing need for professional training in the region. In addition, rapidly changing technology and software requires creative professionals to keep abreast of the latest creative tools and applications. With detailed research and industry recommendation, the decision to partner with FMC was initiated, thus creating Evolve."
