Toonpur Ka Superrhero Director and 5 time National award-winning film-maker Kireet Khurana & leading Animation & Visual Effects training studios - Frameboxx Animation and Visual Effects join hands for a unique venture. “JUGNOO” is India’s first high-quality 3D animation feature film which is being mentored and lead by the Industry best experts, executed in association with the vast talented pool of students from Frameboxx’ highly acclaimed Incubation initiative.
Produced by CLIMB MEDIA in Creative Association with FRAMEBOXX, which is promoted by Industry stalwarts - Manmohan Shetty and Rajesh Turakhia, JUGNOO is an exciting story about a bungling trickster magician who arrives in a town under the grip of the most deviously powerful Tantric magician. This film is also India’s first horror-comedy genre animation film.
BHIMSAIN, India’s Pioneer Animation film-maker is delighted “Despite a few past successes, the local animation content production in India is yet to find its stride and a healthy market. JUGNOO is a unique proposition for igniting the passion of the industry to produce indigenous content while mentoring young minds as film-makers, storytellers and thinking animators. Young animators will gain first-hand experience from the Industry’s best while working on a live project.” Bhimsain is the creator of the inimitable “ek chidiya, anek chidiya” animation short film and winner of 16 President’s National awards.
Naveen Gupta, Executive Director & CEO of FRAMEBOXX is equally excited “Project JUGNOO is a unique opportunity for FRAMEBOXX to contribute towards expanding the vistas of the Indian animation industry, which has tremendous growth potential. We at FRAMEBOXX believe in paying it back to the industry and JUGNOO is one of the several Industry driven initiatives we have supported, apart from forging strong ties with Climb Media. Through this initiative, FRAMEBOXX students will get a fantastic opportunity to work on a real world feature film.”
Kireet Khurana, Director at Climb Media agrees “Armed with our rich past experience, we intend to surpass the animation quality of TOONPUR KA SUPERRHERO and set new benchmarks. We intend to tap on to the very talented pool of young, budding animation artists and hone their expertise to a professional level. FRAMEBOXX’s leadership vision to empower the animation industry by engaging themselves and their talent pool into creating JUGNOO will go a long way in helping the industry grow and thrive.”
JUGNOO has gone into production mode and is slated for Christmas 2013 release.
