An interview of Raman Hui

Hey everyone,

Check out this cool interview of Raman Hui (click the picture), one of the guys who developed the Shrek characters. He is a super nice guy and we are having a lot of fun working with him. In this interview, Raman is as funny, entertaining and natural as he really is in everyday life. Double thumbs up to my good friend Anand Baid, a.k.a. Andy Maxman for organizing this interview.

Hope you all enjoy!

Merry Madagascar on DVD!

Hey everyone!

Finally, the first (short) film of my career, Merry Madagascar, is officially available on DVD.

I did around 15 shots in total. It was real fun and I can't tell you how much I learned about animation during the production.

Get the DVD and enjoy!!!

Merry Madagascar presentation at IAD

Thanks to damned_cat for this awesome picture of Marty. :)

Hi everyone!

There was a premiere presentation of our first short film, Merry Madagascar at the International Animation Day event in Mumbai... and I'm really glad to know that everyone really loved the film! I wasn't there, but some of my colleagues went there to make a few presentations on how we did the film and the challenges we faced. Check out this link.

The movie will be released in the US somewhere around November 17, I believe. It is a fun Christmas special!!

Oh, there is one more good news! My very good friend (a former Animation Mentor student, now working with me), Prashanth Cavale won the award for the Best Professional film in the "1 to 10 minutes" category for his short film "The Cat and the Juggler" at the International Animation Day. Congratulations Prashanth! YAY!!

Cheers everyone!

I'm back!

Hey everyone!

I'm posting after a very long time here... after about 7 months! Right now I'm doing so many things that it has become hard for me to write anything. First off, I don't get time and secondly, I don't know where to start and where to end, what to write and what to hide. Gosh!!

So, we are done with our first project Merry Madagascar. I'm sure you will be seeing that very soon. It was really a good experience working on this Mad short. We all worked really, really hard to learn the Dreamworks way of working and get anywhere close to that level. There were many sweet and bitter moments, but overall it was totally an awesome experience and we rocked it!!! Everyone worked like hell on this first project and I'm really proud of what we did.
Anyway, after completing my work on this show, I took a few weeks of vacation and headed New Delhi for about a week to meet some of my family members. Really had a good time there. Now that I'm back to Bangalore, I have started working on our new Shrek project. I'm sure it is going to be even better and we are gonna rock it too! Dave Burgess is here in Bangalore and he is working with us on our test shots for the next show and taking some really super cool classes. Dave is awesome!!!! I really can't tell you how much I'm learning and enjoying right now, it's just getting better and better.

I'm also working on a personal animation using Jason Ryan's Boris character. I hope to complete it soon and upload it here.
