“TASI-Anifest 2014 was a wonderful event and extremely well organized. The students of Srishti and myself had a really good time and are very fortunate that we could attend the event.

Anifest India 2014 stood as a grand masterclass of the kind that we as a school could probably not think of putting together. Hence it was an invaluable education for our students. The focus on content and the inclusion of filmmakers and professionals outside animation was a splendid idea. It is crucial that animators are forced to come out of their solitary and closed working spaces to embrace influences of live-action, contemporary/fine art practices, sound artists/musicians and academic discourse on narrative, story, myth etc. (as was facilitated by Mr Pattanaik).

A big thank you from me and my students and we look forward to surely being present in the next event, perhaps in larger numbers.”

“This year’s Anifest India was just amazing and a 100% success in terms of knowledge that we got. So firstly congratulations for the great event.

Secondly, i have a request. I wanted to learn some more about motion graphics (which is commonly used in TV channels now-a-days), graphic designing and all new things coming up in this field like info graphics. I hope that will be useful for others too.

Thanks :) “
