MUMBAI: Gyan Correa, director of much acclaimed film The Good Road that was an official entry to represent India for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards, has joined hands with Frameboxx, an animation and visual effect training studio in Mumbai for mentoring students for their Digital Film Making classes.
Gyan Correa who also won the national Award for Best Gujarati film last year for his directorial debut, has directed over 500 TV commercials and documentaries. His work is renowned in the worlds of advertising, NGOs and art, including some of India's leading corporates, the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage, UNICEF and the UGC etc.
Gyan says: “Film making is a skill born of that right blend of theory and practice. It's exciting that Frameboxx has given me a chance to develop a platform for the next generation of film makers. The Boxxoffice way is to have students far spend more time in the field making films, rather than in classroom lecture. That's exciting and compelling".
Students at Frameboxx will get this opportunity to not only interact and learn from him but few will also get to gain practical experience by assisting him in various projects since Gyan is actively involved with Advertising, Film Direction and Production.
The duration of the course would be of twelve months and the first batch will commence in March this year.
Frameboxx chief creative officer Kireet Khurana and creator/director of Toonpur Ka Superrhero says: "Under the mentorship of award-winning advertising and feature film-maker – GYAN CORREA, Box-office promises to be one of India’s best Digital Film making courses. Frameboxx is extremely pleased and honored to have an accomplished film auteur like GYAN on its board."
Frameboxx also has people like Kireet Khurana associated with them. Kireet, son of Animation Pioneer Bhimsain (creator of Ek Chidiya Anek Chidiya), has directed film Toonpur Ka Superhero with Ajay Devgn and Kajol apart from directing many ad films and TV series.
