Independent Animation Filmmaker ________________________________________ I believe in Cinema. I strongly believe, that it will definitely make me something more than a human being.
I am Divakar Kuppan from Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. I am an Independent Animation Filmmaker and Animation educator. ( Visiting Animation Faculty - Kerala State Institute of Design 2021). I have my post graduation in Master of Design in Animation & Film making from Industrial Design Centre, IIT Bombay and graduated in 2019. Previously, I had my undergrad in B.E. Computer Science Engineering and graduated in 2015. Currently am pursuing independent animation filmmaking fulltime and teaching animation on an occasional basis. I have always felt that animation needs to be taught in schooling stage onwards like an Extracurricular activity and I have been thinking of simple and legible ways to take this craft to the children without requiring much of software assistance and just using their natural sketching skills and playful mind. Through various traditional animation techniques like paper and pencil animation, Clay animation, papercut out animation, Chalk and Blackboard animation, we can nurture the creativity among the children at the right stage where their degree of curiosity to learn interesting things is rather more in comparison to the adulthood.
