Epic Games’ Unreal Engine has announced the successful conclusion of the second edition of ‘The Women Creators Program’. Women Creators across the Indian Subcontinent and ASEAN participated in the program.

About 178 participants applied for the program which started on 16 May 2022. Out of the total, 21 women creators were shortlisted for the final stage. These women creators were mentored by former fellowship graduates along with Unreal Engine evangelists. The program has inspired and trained these creators to adopt Unreal in their workflow. With the second edition of The Women Creators Program, Epic Games has been expanding its presence across the Indian subcontinent as well as the Southeast Asian regions. 

The second edition of this innovative program was announced in partnership with Open Air Films, ASIFA India and Perforce Software and the participants were mentored by a creative women mentors panel. The workshop training has covered relevant themes such as Animation and DCC workflows, World Building and Terrain Tools, Lighting and Post Processing, Material Editor, Sequence, Livelink and Blueprints.  

Delighted with the successful conclusion of the Women Creators Program this year, Epic Games business lead – India/SEA Shruti Verma said, “With the closing of second edition of the WCP, we have seen some of the most exceptional talents exhibiting their creativity during these past weeks. The graduating batch of Women Creators Program 2.0 holds immense potential to excel in the industry. In the Unreal Engine community, the possibilities are endless. These creators stand a chance to unlock greater opportunities in the future and we are excited to see how these creators will engage with Unreal Engine in their workflows, going forward.”

Commenting on the launch of the program, Epic Games tech evangelist India/ASEAN Arvind Neelakantan said, “The second edition of the Women Creators Program was bigger and better than the first and we are so proud to see this women creators’ community upskilling themselves. This immersive program for women creators has been a wonderful experience as a mentor and we, as a team, have grown with them. There has never been a better time to make films and all of us at Epic are rooting for them to do creative wonders with Unreal Engine in the future.”

Sharing her experience as a mentor, animator, filmmaker and actor Gitanjali Rao said, “It has been a surreal experience interacting with these dynamic set of women creators for the past couple of months. These creators have evolved and familiarised themselves with the Unreal Engine technology and its features to produce some incredible content in the form of short films. They have overcome their creative challenges to come out as stronger creators with some impressive skills. I am eagerly looking forward to their work in the future.”

The second edition of the Women Creators Program has strengthened the UE Women creators, equipping them to create innovative content using the Unreal Engine platform. The program progressed in a phased manner with phase one, which ended on 10June with a pre-visualisation demo and evaluation, with the final training and a demo day.
