Hello Folks,

Been a long long time, since I wrote something here. Was extremely busy with studio work and some classes at Udemy plus Vacations and what not. But I am back and will be writing more than often now. WordPress is great and is greatly helping me pen down my thoughts here. I am doing good, hope all’f you are doing great. Last year after I joined Technicolor, which resides at the Garden City of India, Bangalore I didn’t think that I would be a part of some great experiences here. The most brilliant and surprising thing that happened was I got to work in The Adventures of Puss in Boots, which was an epic even before Dreamwork’s Puss movie came out. Puss in Boots was already a very legendary character since the 1600s and people were using the character in hundreds of other films and novels. And now, me being a part of this great series makes me feel very content about it. Even though there are time constraints and budget cuts due to this being a series and not a movie, it is an amazing ride and nothing less, and hope of more to come.

The point of this is simple, we work, we should earn respect like anybody else, is that something that doesn’t fit your budget?

Blood, Sweat and the Eventual Satisfaction

Posted in Fellow Animators, Tales from Around, The Curious Animator on October 10, 2012 by Prantic's Marionette

“He that would have the fruit must climb the tree..”

I have no idea who said the above line, but I think he was absolutely right about it. This whole year for me was an amalgamation of insane hard work and sweating, that eventually I get to see two of the TV series that I worked on and it’ll be airing on TV. How cool is that? Well, long way to go for me to make it to the big screens but one step at a time. Alright, lets see some pictures, shan’t we?

Journey to the center of India_For Art, Imagination and Inspiration

Posted in Bread and Wine, Domestic, Fellow Animators, Setting Sail, Tales from Around on December 20, 2011 by Prantic's Marionette

The month of December– The snow did not fall here, neither the spirits of amateur animators from all over India who came to witness the one fabulous event on their journey to almost the center of India in a place which is also known as the Queen of Deccan, Pune. The animation event which I’m vaguely talking about is the Animation Marathon 2011 which took place at the much bigger event venue of animation education moguls SupinFocom, a French animation college collaborating with India’s one of the biggest builders, DSK. So, leaving all the introductions aside, let me cover all the topics about DSK SupinFocom, Animation Marathon 2011, CGTantra, Supinfomania, Gaming Event by GameKshetra, the Shankar Ishan Loy concert, the 24 FPS event, my 12 days of completely unplanned journey and some white air dancing balloons. Sounds pretty exciting, doesn’t it? Well it is..

Animation: Crème de la Crème!

Posted in Fellow Animators, Tales from Around, The Curious Animator with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 16, 2011 by Prantic's Marionette

Hello There,

Its really tough to write something on the first day of the Blog itself. So, as a good blogger, student and aspiring Character animator i would like to start it with something that i inspire upon and would like to get massively involved some day.

ANIMATION!!

I started this journey three years back knowing nothing about it but had a mind and major attraction towards it. So, started searching for good colleges and came across Picasso Animation At New Delhi. By that time, i started to know about the world renowned companies like Pixar and Dreamworks and BlueSky and so on, the list is long. On memory recollection, these companies were never in my mind before i joined and started animating, well maybe DreamWorks because Dreamworks was already famous with its live action movies so somehow knew about it. And it turned out to be such a great experience knowing about the film industry and the cuter and cuddlier version of the movie industry, which of course is the animation Industry.

To think about the world that i create, i live in is so immensely beautiful and magical but on the downside really very small. Pros is, we can reach each other very soon, wherever we may be! Now, its been 3 years through this journey and with all its awesomeness, I never need to look back at anything. We definitely had out problems but who doesn’t, right?

So, in case you are reading the words through my blog, i must tell you that if you’re passionate and damn determined and a little crazy, this is the world for you to be. You’ll love it!!
