TASI has announced a number of confimed speakers including Chetan Shashital, Sekhar Mukherjee, Rajiv Chikalapudi, representatives from Channel V and MTV. The highlight so far has been the the scheduled pre-production and art direction session by Nate Wragg from Pixar. TASI is also scheduling a full day session with Nate on the 17th of August, after the festival and proposes to give free entry to all Anifest Pass holders to this full day bonanza.

TASI opens registration centers across multiple cities

TASI has taken a couple of new initiatives in order to make it easier for people to register for Anifest India 2009. Various registration centers have been opened all across Mumbai from where animation lovers can pick up their passes.

TASI recently visited Pune and is glad to announce that for the first time, it has opened 4 registration centres in the city. Active co-operation from training institutes and local individuals has made this possible. We see a huge potential in initiating a pro-active animation community movement in Pune and artists can rest assured to more TASI events in the city in the coming months.

Update: TASI has also opened registration centers in Kolkata, Ahmedabad and Bangalore.
