Also there is 2D Medical Animation that we are working on since 2012. Muza World completely animates science textbooks in order to provide students with alternative source of learning. Animations contain all the concepts that are presented in the general biology textbook. By watching such educational animations students will be able to learn everything that is required in order to ace the exam. Thankfully our quality and speed was much appreciated by the client who decided to share a portion of the books with us.
What are your other plans for this year?
Besides Multimedia Animation, we have some plan to expand our business to various areas like Development of Games, Software Development, and Comic Book Development.
