Pavithra : Its been pretty great when it comes down to being involved in a studio project. Till now I have been pretty much freelancing in Visual effects and animation while otherwise working on my own concepts and ideas for short films. It is a nice and different experience to have a certain amount of supervision and insight from superiors and its been great to work among a team of members where each play an important and intricate role. Eeksaurus is a very challenging studio with a small team working towards achieving a very particular image. An image that could probably represent them in the most creative and perfect way possible.

Sanjay : I started my career with BAG Films and this is where I came face to face with media and the people related to the industry. Initially it was difficult to understand the procedure and work flow of the industry but with experience and time things started falling in place. Though it was not easy but once you get into the groove, I think either you fight or you are out especially in the field where meeting deadlines are as important as your breathing process. One deadline missed and there is no other chance. But yes I was also lucky to have the support of my seniors who guided me through all the ups and downs.
