CG Today : Hello Nidhi, How are you?

NS : I am good, thanks. Congratulations to your team for coming up with a great venture in the form of CG Today.

CG Today : We attempted to give a short brief about you (above) however we love to hear it through your own words. Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your professional activities?

NS : Thanks for the wonderful brief above, that really sums up quite a lot about my professional activities.

Other than that, well I am quite an intuitive and inquisitive person so often engrossed in my own research. On the personal front, family, friends, books, travel & photography keep me engaged while on the professional front, I am totally into Plucap and its growth plans. Currently on the professional front, I am busy with the development of our IP product which is in the beginning stage. I will talk more about it soon.

CG Today : That's great, So all your experiences are encapsulated as Studio Plucap; can you please brief about the services of Studio Plucap?

I think it’s quite natural, the situations we get into and the experiences we acquire out of those; influence the direction we move towards and the way we deal with things in life. Especially, the practical knowledge and technical skills I acquired during my professional assignments definitely helps in running the company.

CG Today : How long have you had your businesses, who are the key clients?

NS : 2008 is when I decided to establish Plucap. In the beginning of any new idea, a lot of time goes into the research, development and setting the processes right! It’s been two years since we are into the real business. Our clients, at present, are among large corporate organizations, IT company, media agencies, manufacturing units, TV broadcaster, Film production house and an independent producer from Europe.

CG Today : Can you share with us the major projects Studio Plucap have worked on?

Yeah it’s very important that you have somebody who shares your vision, who looks at the same picture that you have in mind and someone who is equally dedicated to the company as you are. Mr. Arvind Singh who is the co-promoter of Studio Plucap and Director – Marketing, handles business development on day to day basis.

CG Today : What motivated you to start your own production studio and what initial challenges did you face?

NS : Creating something out of scratch always excited me.  Arts, graphics, cartoons, comics, stories were the things I was always inclined to and moreover there is nothing else I understand either :).  In that case, what can be a better choice than running an entertainment and media company!
