Interviewer : At first, congratulations Ritabrata, may you always succeed in what you love to do.
Ritabrata: thank you.

Interviewer: alright, I’d like to ask you how it all started? When did you decide to learn Animation.
Ritabrata: I grew up learning sketching and I’ve always been very fond of Animation whether it’s cartoon shows or 3D movies. So after my 12th I decided to enroll myself at Hi-Tech Animation in 2013 to learn Multimedia, a course of one and a half year.

Interviewer: Do you have any working experience before this job interview?
Ritabrata: yes, I have been working as 2D animator since I passed out from Hi-Tech, two and half years ago to be precise. So far I have worked for 4 companies and this is my 5th job I’m going to join. Out of 5 companies Hi-Tech Animation has placed me in 3 companies. I can remember my first job at Chennai, where I worked for one year. I got that job through the help of the placement cell of my institution.

Interviewer: How was today’s experience at the interview?
Ritabrata: Though I have earlier appeared in 4 interviews as an animator still I was a bit nervous. They asked me some tricky questions but I managed to answer all of them. It was a nice experience altogether.

Interviewer: Does the curriculum you studied helped you in your professional field?
Ritabrata: of course, the course I studied a couple of years back was already designed to keep ourselves astride of the latest developments​ at that time. I learned Photoshop,  flash, Maya, Adobe Flash, Premiere, After Effects and many more.

Interviewer: Where do you see yourself in 5 years down the line?
Ritabrata: I have a long cherished dream of working outside of India. I had already applied​ for two overseas companies but both of my applications were rejected since one needs at least 6 years of work experience to fulfill the first provision of working outside of India. Still I’m determined to bag my overseas job offer in couple of years.

Interviewer: Can you share me some of your animation learning experience here?
Ritabrata: When it comes to learning experience the first thing pops up in my mind are faculties of my institute, who are really very helpful and experienced. I still remember all of my teachers there and through this interview I’d like to express my gratitude to them for their proper guidance to place me on my dream pavement of career.

Interviewer: well, thank you Ritabrata, it’s nice to talk with you. Hope you work overseas once you completed the 6th years of working as professional. Wish you all the best for your better future.
Ritabrata: thank you so much.
