Right now, we are working on our ambitious animated feature film project ‘BHOOT MAHAL’, a horror theme-based adventure story of three young boys. We are planning to complete this project by this year end. We are using the blend of classical animation and digital 2D animation techniques to execute this project.
In our initial days, we faced the problem of a shortage of skilled manpower to execute our domestic assignments. The animators that are available here in this region failed to match the desired skills and exposure to meet the industry standards.
So, left with no option we were compelled to start our in-house training program to upgrade our present employees’ skills and to build a fresh team of animators.
This paved the way for the emergence of Animation institute within the existing ToonOne Animation Studio.
