Swathy Sudevan, PG-VFX
"I’m from Kerala and I’m a graduate in B.Sc. Bio Technology. Because my background was in Bio Science, I didn’t have much knowledge in this visual effects field.

The placement cell helped us to get a job at Prime Focus, Hyderabad and I have worked in two Bollywood projects and some Telugu projects. I work as a Roto and Paint Artist."
Sony S. Madhu, PG-VFX
"Hey I am Karthick. I am basically from Ooty. I did my B.Sc. (Vis.com) at Madras Christian College and further did a PG in VFX at ICAT. We learnt about the entire VFX production pipeline, from Pre-production to Post production. We then deeply studied about VFX, starting from Roto, Wire Removal, CG Compositing, Matte Painting, Tracking and so on. We had great support from ICAT, even after the regular class timings.
We had screenings of making of movies, many guest lecturers from the industry, technical seminars etc. We had a group project, which made us work as a team that was very useful while working in a production team in the industry. I have got placed in R&H, Hyderabad through the Placement department of ICAT. I've worked in projects namely, 'Night at the Museum', 'Land of the Lost' and 'They came from upstairs'."
"I am Sherwyn.L, completed my graduation from Hindustan college. After that, I joined ICAT for PG – VFX and currently I am working for Rhythm & Hues studios, Hyderabad. Thanks to the Placement department for getting this placement. I got lot of good experience and training from ICAT. The Visual effects course in ICAT was very interesting and useful for me.
The way they have arranged classes, seminars, and classes by professionals really helped a lot. I got good support from ICAT in shaping my career dreams. I worked as BGREP and Roto artist for the projects like, 'They came from upstairs', 'Fast & Furious 4', 'Night at the Museum' and 'Land at the lost'."
"When I graduated from Visual Communication, I was satisfied that the course was enjoyable. But I felt to be one among the herd and didn't have an identity for my talent. I wanted to join a course that could educate me on my thirst for Live action and Computer graphics, and that's how I got into ICAT.
Our college trained us in extra skills of film making, which one would not realize to be important until entering a production house and bringing technicians from the film world. All these made most of us learn the practical aspects of producing a world class movie in terms of quality. I still maintain excellent rapport with my college and I remember the days spent there... colourful in my mind..."
