Paprikaas Dreamworks selects animators from Frameboxx


    MUMBAI: Paprikaas Dreamworks Bangalore has selected 30 students from various centres of Frameboxx Animation and Visual Effects.

    Frameboxx, which started its operations in December 2007, has already established 23 centres in various parts of the country with major focus on preparing studio-ready animators through highly innovative curriculum. "Our focus is not to churn out animators, but truly creative artistes who understand the fine nuances of complete CG animations and visual effects," says Frameboxx founder and executive director Naveen Gupta.

    The campus placement is a regular feature at Frameboxx with studios approaching it for picking up the best CG artistes that include Pixion, Footprints, and numerous other production houses, and next month Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies, and Crest are some of the other studios who would be conducting placement interviews, informed Gupta.

    "We have learnt more than mere the software," feels Mohammad Asheem Khan, who has been selected from Chandigarh for rotoscopy work by Paprikaas, while Neha another city girl considers her selection in the same studio the result of the regular interaction with the various guest faculty comprising of film producers, professional photographers, lighting specialists, and theatre artists.

    "One of the major investment that Frameboxx has recently made is to set up world class studio facility worth Rs 1 crore at Mumbai in its exclusive incubation centre for which 50 students from across the Frameboxx centres in India will be picked up for hands-on training on live projects," said Gupta.

    Manmohan Shetty recently picked up a majority stake in Frameboxx Animation and Visual Effects.
