Had a fantastic post screening Q & A session and discussion at The Great Indian Film and Literature Festival on Schirkoa. It’s motivating that audience received the film so well and asked intelligent and thought provoking questions regarding the world, characters and my own journey. It heartwarming that many of my family members could come and finally watch Schirkoa, now that it visited my hometown.

Thanks GIFLIF and Karan Kukreja for putting up this fantastic chapter in Bhopal. Hope it grows bigger by each year.



Seminar in Thailand

I gave a seminar on the ‘Making of Schirkoa’ at BIDC (Bangkok International Digital Content Festival). It was fun to talk to the students and professionals from Thailand and all around Asia. Discussing the technical and artistic details of Schirkoa with like minded artists is always exhilarating. The BIDC Team was great and I am really looking forward to the SIGGRAPH Asia later this year at Bangkok now. Later I flew to Chiangmai to give the seminar to a fun bunch of students from Chiangmai University. Didn’t know North Thailand is so laid back and peaceful.

TEDx talk at BITS Pilani

It was good to be back at BITS campus for the TEDx talk. Schirkoa was born here. And seeing my posters at the same university from where I dropped out was surreal. The interactions with fellow speakers were insightful and the TEDx organizing team was fantastic. They were even up for a private screening at my room at 12 midnight. It turned out to be one of the coolest screenings ever.

The sunshine evening was particularly memorable.
