The Octonauts - My project at Crest Animation Studios

The OCTONAUTS are a team of under sea Adventurers who are always ready to dive into action! Their mission: To Explore new Underwater Worlds, Rescue Amazing sea creatures and protect the Ocean.
Working in Collaboration with two times Academy Awards Nominee Studio, Brown Bag Films (U.K.), Crest has produced this Gem of a TV show for kids that is taking the world by storm. The show is a massive hit worldwide among kids and their parents Alike for its unmatched appeal. It is a well thought of series that aims to instill important general knowledge about sea and sea creatures in the minds of viewers while viewers are immersed in solving the mystery with octonauts characters.
The Show has recently been nominated at the Emmy Awards 2013. Its ever increasing demand has expanded its broadcast in other countries and now has almost covered the globe.

Great Learning Experience - It was indeed an Awesome experience, I learned a lot from the entire process. Firstly , It was a project on 3DS MAX, secondly, Working with world class studio.Working in a pipeline that is Efficient and Super productive. Thirdly, Understanding the Mindset of Toddlers as the show was aimed at children. It was the most crucial part to keep the animation simple yet strong.Any unnecessary/violent/very rapid or very subtle movement could divert the attention/interest of the toddler or could harm their sensitive mind. So, we had to really plan out each shot in the most simplified yet effective manner.
