Dr. Ezhil Vendan,
Emagic Animation Company & Academy
Here's a look into the projects I've had a hand in over the years. Starting with the most recent (and exciting):
Hanuman Vs Mahiravana: I directed an animated feature film which was released all across India on the 6th of July 2018 in stereoscopic 3D.
Concept art, design of environments, characters and storyboards were done by me for the most part. I supervised the animation and did the lighting for every sequence of the film!
Academy: I run a small classroom and mentorship programme called Emagic Animation Academy. I take a handful of students and teach them the art of animation to the best of my ability. I also guest lecture at Loyola College, Chennai for the PG animation students.
Gaming Experience: I lived in UK for eight continuous years (2004 to 2012) where I used to work for 3 game companies - Visual Science (Medal of Honour, Velocity), Code Masters (Colin McRae 5) and the Warner Bros. owned TT games (Lego Batman, Lego Indiana Jones, Lego Clone Wars).
Background: As a graduate practicing Dental Surgeon, I made the shift to animation in the year 1995. From that point on I had the chance to work on some pivotal roles in companies such as Pentamedia as a 3D Pre-Production Head (1999-2000) and Jadooworks as a 3D Modeling Head (2000-2001). During that time I had the opportunity to closely work with legendary Film directors such as Singeetham Srinivasa Rao and Director S. P. Jananathan.
