Mr .Shajan Samuel in his welcome note said MAAC Manifest 2012 is held with the objective of propagating Animation as a Progressive Career. The presence of accomplished guest and speakers is an inspiration to hundreds of Animation aspirants with dream in their eyes and fire in their belly.
Samuel went on to add that , one of the biggest problem in this industry is overinvestment in marketing and underinvestment in Academics , I firmly believe that Academic conversion is the key , Animation still being part of Vocational training skills , has a flexible entry gate ,but we need to make the exit gate tighter by having Periodic T3 Programs for faculties , Assignments , projects , exams after every modules , Industry exposure and Guest lectures , All of this should be like a dial tone and not a tick on the checklist . Platforms like MAAC Manifest bridges down the gap between perception and reality broadens our horizon and provides us with a 360 degree view on Animation.
Arnab Choudhary gave an awesome insight in to the making of “Arjun the Warrior “ Arjun the warrior has been one of the recent finds of the Animation industry and the movie is particularly known for the craft and finesse.
Prosenjit Ganguly had witty and humorous connection with the audience. He more than got across his message and concerns to the students. A very graphic and animated presenter. He offered some practical solutions. A glorious outlook into making a career with CGI.
Siju Thomas spoke on the evolution of Animation in the last 2 decades and the life cycle of a CG artist.
