A Director’s Thank You – 20 Years in Service
This year, Arena Animation, Malleswaram is officially in its 21st year of operations having completed 20 successful years in Animation, VFX & Gaming Education.
When we started in December 1999, the technology industry was booming, and we were enjoying a strong wave of growth and innovation. In comparison to the booming & fast growing technology industry, the the multimedia industry as it was known back then was relatively very new & unheard of. This in fact encouraged & motivated me to venture out & the institution felt right. I had the loving support of my wife and family, and I was ready to jump in.
The hardest part to the start of the institution was assembling a very small training centre with minimum resources, which was housed in a single floor in a shared office building
Reflecting on the past two decades in training and what comes to mind are the opportunities where we’ve played a significant role for our aspiring Artists & Animators helping thousands of them to enter the growing market & position themselves among the best in the world. Along the way, we’ve worked through some difficult times too but helped & supported by our wonderful support team in-house & the belief of thousands of students & their parents. I thank all of them for their unwavering commitment and great relationships.
To be in this field for 20 years requires having incredible people in your organization. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work every day with a group of talented, passionate and caring people. Their willingness to give of themselves and help each other is very special and is deeply admired. They are the best.
Thank you for a special 20 years and here’s to celebrating the next successful chapter together.
