I am Sheshkiran.N, from Banglore India.
I am an Animator.Since Childhood,I have been drawing cartoon characters and trying to animate them.
Before I even Knew anything about computer, I used to draw cartoon Fish in the Corner of my notebook page in a series,and enjoy the animation-effects,by rapidly flipping the pages.
After completing my Highschool education,I joined a computer training institute - 'Abacus' where I learned Flash animation.It was fascinating,and I started taking more interest in it.
Knowing my passion for animation,my parents too decided to train me in Animation;so I enrolled my name in 'Animaster'- a muitamedia training institute in Banglore; where they taught me the Technicalities of 2D drawings and animtion.I did my 1st project here - an animation clip with my own idea.
Meanwhile I started getting job offers from Multiamedia Companies to Work as an Animator.
I joined 'Param Padam Multimedia'and worked on a project designed for the Australian school children. I created some comic characters in Flash and also did some background in Photoshop.
Later I joined 'Media Jennie' another Multimedia Company as a 'Flash Animator'. Here I learned few things about web designing and use of action script.This job hardly lasted for about a year as there was no further job works based on flash, I had to bid goodbye.
But I still felt something amiss.Now I wanted to learn 3D animation.After quitting Media Jennie I registered myself in 'MAAC' to learn 3D.Here I learned 3D Modelling, Texturing, combustion, After Effects and bit of Rigging.Though I liked to learn both Modelling and Texturing, I was asked to choose any one of the two.I settled down to learn modelling.I created models of humans,Monsters,beastes, cars, mobikes and several other objects.
While I was half way through the course, I got another job offer from 'Stump-Vision'- a sports based multimedia company.First I joined here as a part time Animator and later; after finishing my 3D course at ,MAAC' I took up the job full time.
In this firm I had the opportunity to learn a totally new software called 'Expression'. I was told, that very few people in the world know about this software.Later I did some flash animation work involving cricket matches.
Here too no further Flash projects were coming up; so I quit to join 'Foresee Multimedia Pvt.Ltd'where they did web designing and also published a children's magazine called 'Hoopla'.Presently I am working here as a Graphic Designer and Animator. I create illustrations for the children's magazine based on the given story lines, and also do flash animation work for the websites for our clients.
I also do freelance work for other companies in my free time.I have done illustration in flash for 'Frameboxx' - a multimedia company having its offices accross India.
My ambition in life is to create and animate a cartoon character from India and make it popular globally, just like the Mickey Mouse, Tom and Jerry or the 'Popeye'.
I love watching Animated films but more than the main film I like watching the 'making' part of it.
My favourite film makers among others are 'Miyazaki of Japan (Spirited away)and Richard Philips of Toy Story.
