Personal Profile

Killivalavan Solai

My name is Killivalavan Solai and I am a CG artist, film maker and an Entrepreneur from Tamil Nadu, India. I started working in CG in 2002 using Kinetix 3d Studio Max 5 to create multimedia presentations while in college for my Computer Science and Engineering. I started liking the whole idea of creating something from scratch and giving life to it. Animation gave me power to create whatever I like. So I went on to explore more about CG as well as graphic design. Nearing the end of my college career I had developed
interests and skills in various fields. But my options were in either starting a creative design studio as an Entrepreneur or pursuing my interest in CG to become a film maker. Serendipity struck my door and I co-founded a design studio in my hometown before the end of my college by the end of 2004. Hence my journey continued as an entrepreneur in the design and branding arena. Things were fine until the global economic crisis hit our doors and we had to close the company with a big loss. I opted to pursue my old interest as a animation film maker. Hence I landed in School of Visual Arts, New York for MFA in Computer Art with 3d animation as my concentration.
At SVA, I learnt the theory of film making and its production methods. I also learnt about the CG production methods and went on to produce my final thesis short 3d animation film called “Evy in the New Word”. I graduated May 2012 successfully as a proud film maker with my first creation. Irrespective of my future job, I would like to create my personal projects and short film to feed my personal ego as a creator :)
