Whoa Narntson! Thanks for going and watching the film man. Really appreciate it!

I am bummed to know that there was no fade in. There is a fade in between 0-3 secs. But if they skipped that then yes, you may have seen an abrupt start.

My DCP was 2K only. I am glad to know that colors and images looked sharp enough and sound was awesome. Feels that the hard work paid off on big screen! Wish I could be there. But I am super glad that you were!!

Schirkoa wins “Best Animated Short” at LA Shorts last night. Winning at an Oscar qualifying festival qualifies it for the final 2 rounds of Oscars and BAFTA where it will be competing other “best of the show” winners for final 5 nominations. Still a long way to go, but so far so good.

Schirkoa did not make it to the final 10 for the Oscars.

Well, it was the most competitive year ever in the shorts category so we always knew it was going to be tough. Films from Pixar, Disney and Veterans like Theodore Ushev and Patrick Osborne are in. Schirkoa will continue it's festival run till mid 2017.

*A lot has happened in past few months. I have given seminars, masterclasses and even a TEDx talk on Schirkoa!

*The festival run has been going steady, and apart from some great festivals Schirkoa got accepted in 2 more Academy Award Qualifying festivals.

*It was featured on Cartoon Brew , Indian Express , Yahoo , AWN and many more places. (https://schirkoa.com/awards/)
