Mahesh Bhatt concludes DIGITAL KRANTI

Mumbai, October 24, 2010: Mahesh Bhatt and several industry experts joined in FX School’s DIGITAL KRANTI to discuss possibilities in the fields of Filmmaking, Animation, Visual Effects and Photography in the digital age. The legendary filmmaker spoke of the digital medium as “a new asset in the expression of the human narrative”. It is now more convenient for the filmmaker to share his story and generate better content as “entertainment will be flickering in the palm of your hands.” This remained the emphasis through Bhatt’s talk to a packed audience at Rangsharda Auditorium on Sunday.

DIGITAL KRANTI kicked off with Internationally renowned Animation Film Maker Geetanjali Rao showcasing her award winning film “Printed Rainbow” and followed it up with a riveting discussion on making a living as an animator. Coming from the classical animation school, she spoke at length about how technology can aid talent today to create superior animation films. Rhythm and Hues (R&H), the Oscar Award winning post production studio, was represented by Amit Aidasani. He shared with great enthusiasm stories of work and life at R&H and stressed on the collaborative effort that goes into visual effects. As the already euphoric atmosphere was charged by the first two presentations leaving the participants wanting more, Ramesh A – Co Founder of Kreeda Games (India’s leading Gaming and Game Design company) took to the podium to share his experiences and urged on the importance of self confidence and thinking out of the box as the key to constantly innovate in a creative environment and workplace. One of the key elements of Digital Content Creation – Visual Effects (VFX) has been seen to acquire a new found place of importance , especially after the stupendous success of “Avatar” globally. Yunus Bukhari one of India’s leading and respected VFX specialists shared his experience while making India’s first Live Action cum Animation Film “Toonpur Ka Superrhero”.

While pre lunch proceedings were mostly related to Animation, VFX and Gaming, post lunch concentrated on Digital Film Making and Digital Photography. Alexandra Copley who has worked extensively with National  Geographic and is a faculty at Ohio State University shared her passion for photography. While commenting on the difference in courses and teaching methodologies in the USA and India she took the audience through a visual treat of photos taken by her across the world. Alexandra is currently a faculty at FX School. One of the most  interesting and absorbing discussions post lunch was that by Prashant Pandey – Scriptwriter for films like “Sarkaar”, “Sarkaar Raj” & “Rakhta Charitra”. Students and attendees were put to ease with Prashant’s down to earth attitude and his grasp of his subject and environment made the Q&A slot extremely interesting. DIGITAL KRANTI was compered by Anand Gurnani from Animation Express. The Seminar also showcased the high quality student work in Digital Photography & Digital Painting displayed as an Art Gallery. FX School student show reels were also played and were hugely appreciated by the 600 strong participants.
