The Foundry Roadshow in India ended last week. We visited Mumbai, Hyderabad and Chennai and have seen 1400 attendants at our conferences. We come home with a great experience and some great feedback. Looking forward to seeing you again India!

Between 15th and 18th November we organised a roadshow across India-stopping in Mumbai, Hyderabad and Chennai. In total, we received 1400 attendees over the course of three days. The roadshow provided a great opportunity for us to connect face-to-face with our local partners, showcase work from international artists such as Suzanne Jandu from MPC London and Srinivas Mohan from ArkMediaworks, as well as learn more about how we can help shape our software to better achieve the ambitions of the local artists. We come home with a great experience and some great feedback. Looking forward to seeing you again India!

The Foundry concludes it’s 3-city annual roadshow on a high note

The Foundry, a leading global creative software developer in collaboration with local distributor ARK Infosolutions has concluded its fourth edition of “The Foundry Road Show India 2016” in Mumbai, Hyderabad and Chennai.

The annual Indian Roadshow provides a medium for The Foundry to connect with the local talent in major VFX hubs of India; Mumbai, Chennai and Hyderabad. Each year The Foundry brings an international artist to showcase their work on a box office film, as well as 2-3 local studios who have recently produced Hollywood and Bollywood-style motion pictures using The Foundry’s software. This year, The Foundry had seen an influx of participation for this event in all 3 cities; Mumbai: 670 visitors, Hyderabad: 362 visitors and Chennai: 390 visitors.

Prominent VFX artists; Suzanne Jandu – Lead Compositor at MPC, who worked on visual effects for the movies like Harry Potter, Troy and more recently on The Jungle Book and The Martian. Srinivas Mohan, Visual Effects Supervisor, Arka Media, who worked on Blockbuster movie – Baahubali, Enthiran – The Robot and Sivaji – The Boss.

Tom Rockhill, Head of Sales – EMEA, The Foundry comments, “India has a huge engine for VFX and post production and has been growing for a number of years. Through our roadshow, we aim to bring international artists together with local studios to learn from and inspire each other. This year’s roadshow was indeed a fantastic event as we had showcased some of the best VFX scenes from movies like The Jungle Book and The Martian. We also really excited to show an exclusive behind the scenes look at Baahubali! For next year, we can only expect bigger and better things in India.”

Quotes from Artists:

Suzanne Jandu, Lead Compositor, MPC said, “I’m always impressed when I see the quality of work that comes from our Indian office in Bangalore. Being in India with The Foundry has been a dream come true. It has enabled me to meet a lot of the local artists who are working on some fantastic new projects using NUKE and CARA VR which is truly inspiring stuff!”

Srinivas Mohan, Visual Effects Supervisor, Arka Mediaworks Pvt Ltd, said “It becomes a challenging task for us to re-create and meet the global standards on VFX on an Indian budget, as our Indian audiences are used to watching photo-realistic effects in Hollywood films. By using Nuke – highly advanced software helps you to provide outcome at a different level, nothing less than the scale of any Hollywood film and we have seen that in the movie – Baahubali.”
