Karan Awasthi

Karan has received his core education in classical animation from the Vancouver Film School as well as in visual effects for Film and TV from Seneca College of Visual Arts in Canada. Before working as a digital compositor in feature films, Karan had a vast experience of working as a storyboard artist in the Indian Film and Television industry for over 7 years. Some of the notable films that he worked on as a storyboard artist are The Legend of Drona (2008), Aladin (2009), Veer (2010) and Madrasapattinam (2010). While working on various challenging projects in the industry, Karan had the persistent drive to expand his repertoire of technical skills and knowledge of processes involved in communication design. This drive pushed him to enrol with Seneca College of Visual Arts, Canada where he honed his skills and knowledge in VFX and 3D animation.

Upon completion of his education, he went on to work on some large scale projects like Resident evil Retribution (2012), Twilight Breaking Dawn 2 (2012), Game of Thrones Season 3 (2013), Beauty And The Beast TV (2014), The Nut Job (2015), Godzilla (2015) and The Nut Job 2 (2016) to name a few. Over the years, Karan has also worked on ad films storyboards for clients like Coca Cola, Samsung, UNICEF, Maruti Suzuki, Pepsi (World Cup) and LG.

Karan’s forte lies in subject matters like pre-production for films and media, colour and art therapy, intuitive art, illustration, product design, storyboard and mixed media art amongst a range of other expertise. In addition to donning the hat of a storyboard artist, Karan also manages his product design brand by the name of Tamaacha.

At IIAD, Karan mentors many budding communication designers and artists to find their calling and specialize in processes and skill sets required to succeed in the industry.
