In 1998, I was invited by RMUSL (now UTVToons), a Mumbai based
animation studio to design and conduct a program to train selected
artists in the techniques of animation film making to enter production
as Junior Animators. This 6-month intensive course covered, besides
the normal animation exercises, various other aspects including
life drawing, art of caricature, character and story development,
story boarding, gag ideas, layout design, and acting.
After successful completion of this program, Bill Dennis of Toonz
Animation India, invited me to help set up the studio and train
the first batch of animators in Trivandrum, Kerala.
