The ‘Saroj’ story showcased how Colour Academy transformed lives of unskilled labour by providing them with skills and support. This video was very well received. Asian Paints Colour Academy received many requests for training; especially from women inspired by Saroj’s journey. Infact a few all women training batches have been initiated at various locations post that. Taking this a step further, Asian Paints Colour Academy has launched ‘The Colour Academy Visual Tour’. This innovative video gives consumers a 360-degree view of Colour Academy.

In fact, this is one of the first times that Virtual Reality technology has been used by a brand to advertise or promote a film. The objective is to create a more immersive and engaging experience with the consumer and leave a deep and long lasting impact on them. The video offers guidance at grassroots level to motivate and inspire people to join Colour Academy. Moreover the video gives one a clear guided tour of the world class training facility and the entire journey of the training course and environment of the academy.
Speaking on ‘360 degree Colour Academy Visual Tour’, Amit Syngle, President-Sales, Marketing & Technology, Asian Paints Ltd said “Our first initiative to promote colour academy was through the digital video, Saroj. Our objective from day one was to reach out to unskilled labour enthusiastic to learn and make a name for themselves but have limitations related society or financial issues. We are here to provide a creative and reputable career opportunity. With 360 degree video format that is available on YouTube and other social media platforms, consumers can now get a deeper insight into Colour Academy.
