UPDATES ON SCHIRKOA
An update after so long. I have been mostly busy with Schirkoa’s blog and submissions. So here are some updates from past several months.
- Schirkoa made it to Oscar long list by winning the top award at LA Shorts. It didn’t make it to the final 10 though. It was the record breaking year in this category and being my first film, I am happy that it made it this far. I also got to know it is the first ever Indian animated short to ever make it to the Oscar long list in the history of Academy Awards.
- Schirkoa won ‘Best of Show’ at SIGGRAPH Asia Macao. Again a huge honor and first ever Indian animated short to ever win this award. I will be in Macao to receive the award and hold a talk on the making of the film.
- Schirkoa has been screened in over 35 festivals and won 16 of them so far. You can always head here for the most updated list.
- I have been working with an exciting Danish Metal band on their animated music video due for release next year. And after Schirkoa’s hangover, it some insane fun to work on. They are kind enough to give me a complete creative license and I can’t wait to share it when it’s done.
