The need of the hour is for associations like ABAI to work hand in hand with institutes like MAAC to develop programs and curriculums that significantly raise the standardss of local talent to accommodate for the rising levels of expectations from global studios. My best wishes and congratulations to the MAAC team for developing this program. I hope this will contribute the process of growing talent towards undertaking global standard projects..
