There was never any doubt that I wanted to be part of the VFX industry. My love for movies and fascination of creating photo-real effects were the foundation of my pursuit for a career as an FX TD. To accomplish my goals to reach a new level of high quality work on feature film and TV series, I sought to master my craft at Lost Boys | School of Visual Effects. There, I was able to produce my FX demo reel and acquire the skills to thrive in a high pressure environment.
I was most inspired by my brother growing up. He was always drawing and making art in so many different mediums. Compositing was the most fascinating form of art for me. In middle school, I fondly remember trying to create a hologram effect inspired by Iron Man 3. I hit so many roadblocks! The process of problem-solving was so addictive and sent me on a spiral of online resources to expand my knowledge of visual effects. I have been in this same spiral ever since, and I couldn't be happier.
At the age of college time i was perusing Bachelor Degree in Information technology. during those times I was passionate on sketching and concept arts. by that year the movie named the Rise of planet of apes( 2011 ) hits the screen and my eyes where stunned watching the whole movies. I was really amazed by the work, specially the FX and CFX work. That is the moment I realized that I want to work in VFX industry as a FX Artist.
With an abstract articulation of meaning in ideas and thoughts, visual effects succeed at sparking an enormity of possibilities by adorning the mental space with impactful expressions and cohesive layouts. I started exploring imaginative traits of VFX artists in translating their visions into visibilities by watching breakdowns and technical analysis of movies and videogames on the web. Inspired by the work of all the amazing artists, I decided to pursue a career in VFX.
I am very passionate, eager to learn new skills and enjoy problem solving. I am specialized in Compositing as well as roto painting, CG integration, set extension, keying, and BG prep. I recently graduated from the Advanced VFX Compositing Program at Lost Boys | School of VFX. Since graduation, I have been working as a Junior Digital Paint Artist at Industrial Light & Magic.

I was always very creative growing up but when I finished high school I took the path of business because I thought that's whats expected of me since my family is in business. I was in my fourth year and the professor was talking about a typical day at work and I thought to myself I cannot do this for the rest of my life. So I thought about my passions and what I love which lead me into this AMAZING industry.
Back in India when i was doing my Diploma in computer science engineering i was acting in short movies that were directed by my instructor but i knew i was bad at that and i moved to editing department i started loving the process and i wanted to do more and start working in movies and that when i got to now about Lost Boys school of VFX and now ill be graduating in VFX Compositing on August 28th
I always had a passion for video editing, music, and creating visual memories. I initially wanted to become a film producer but after working on several short films I realized that my passion was more on the post-production side. I've always loved whimsical effects that are able to transport an audience into a whole new world, and after doing more research into HOW, and specifically watching a breakdown of LOTR, I knew that compositing was what I wanted to do.
Growing up and even to this day, I have been deeply inspired by the power of visual effects. Every passing year, I am amazed by the astonishing progress of visual effects and their ability to push boundaries of storytelling beyond what was previously thought possible. Looking back at the movies I enjoyed as a child, I am struck by the stark contrast between the effects of yesteryear and the incredible magnitude of visual effects achieved in recent years.
