Hemant : Well, I am working with CDL from the beginning and I found it to be really a nice place to work. The most amazing thing I like about CDL is its nice working environment. We are a small team; we all work together, learn, share and admire each other’s work. It is good to be a part of such an excellent team.

Deva SaravananCG Today : Mr. Deva, Thank you for agreeing to talk to us. Please accept our warm welcome.

Deva : Thank You.

CG Today : We would like to start this interview with a question we seldom get a chance to ask. 15 years and counting in the animation industry is quite an accomplishment. When did you decide this line for a career at a time when animation wasn’t anywhere near what it is now in India?

Deva : It was accident. Well a very interesting accident. When I was a student in Chennai collage of arts and crafts I got a chance to see the movie “Lion king”. In that movie there was a scene where Simbha the cub will cry in front of his father’s dead body “help me… anybody... Somebody,” I was moved in to tears, it’s so amazing that an Animator can make audience laugh and cry. Yes art has that capability to bring emotions in to the people mindset and let them go vivid with their imagination. Animation is a structured way for making the audience think what you are thinking or what you want him to think, that’s the power of animation and that has been keeping me moving on all these years.

Animation was not a well heard name those days; it was Mr. Chandrasekhar, Managing Director of Pentafour software & Exports Limited (Pentamedia Graphics) who introduced us to this industry. After graduation I took up my career in Animation with Pentafour.

Kamal KrishnaCG Today : Kamal, we are pleased to have you as a guest on CG Today.

CG Today : So, you were a painter as a child. At what point did you realize that art was going to be your life’s career?

Kamal : I never thought art was going to be my career. Though I got national and international awards for painting, it was always a hobby and I never saw it as a career.

I joined a multimedia institute just for fun as it seemed as another medium to paint. I never realized when my canvas became a computer. While I was a student in the multimedia institute I simultaneously worked as part of the faculty, which later extended my role as an animator in the in-house production team. Soon offers came in and this field has become my career.
