We are using the best of hardware and software apart from specialized man-power weaim at delivering traditional 2D animation 90 minute films in a span of 9 to 12 monthswhich usually take 25 - 30 months. After the setup of our own animation studio which isone of the best in country in terms of human resources hardware & software we can nowundertake projects for other firms & individuals. With the launch of more televisionchannels there is an acute shortage of material to telecast increasing our opportunitiesto exploit better prices for our content.
