Specifically training the brain to develop the right habits, efficient workflows to achieve great quality, and critically analyzing your own animation to improve the results. Ultimately, I wanted to help and share my knowledge with those passionate animators (who like I once) needed a bit of guidance.

Founder & Mentor

After building up 18 years of industry experience, with VFX films, games, TV series and commercials, I now feel competent to share my knowledge with new generation animators who feel they need a bit of guidance in the right direction for pursuing a career in VFX Industry.

 

The main reason I wanted to begin teaching is, I initially struggled a lot to learn animation back in India, because we never had access to proper training schools, which meant I was entirely self-taught. As a result, along the way, I learned all kinds of bad habits of animation. It took me years to realize what is the right way and the correct approaches to animation, so this is what I wanted to teach in theseworkshops.
