Show your enthusiasm, use good judgment, keep your skills current and always enjoy your life!
How did your career begin?
I grew up watching cartoons/animation series and playing games. After completing my BA.BEd, I wanted to pursue a career in 3D Animation.
My career began with me working for a few years at Photo Studios in Chennai. Then, at DQ Entertainment I started my 3D job as a Texturing Artist for episodes.
In 2015, I relocated to Bangalore and started working for Technicolor Games. Later that same year, I took on the role as an Asset Team Leader.
What is your most memorable moment/project working at Technicolor Games?
The work culture and learning possibilities here have continued to excite me every day since I started. For instance, I was handed a project for FIFA working on custom maps. This was when I first started out and had no idea what ZBrush software was. However, thanks to Technicolor Games’ training program and the advice and support of my co-workers, leads and supervisors, I was able to pick up the software and grasp an understanding of the gaming pipeline rapidly.
What is it like working at Technicolor Games?
Technicolor Games has a fantastic atmosphere and is a great place to work. The training programs and mentorship provide excellent opportunities for everyone to learn and develop.
Technicolor Games prioritizes work-life balance and offers flexible schedules as well as other perks that encourage good well-being for employees.
What are you excited about for the future?
The upcoming initiatives and company growth excites me because they will present more learning opportunities that will challenge us.
I’m also excited to be a part of a prosperous society that values cooperation and support.
