Steven Spielberg’s note of appreciation to Krishna Bala Shenoi


Krishna Bala Shenoi, a Second year student at Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology received a hand written note of appreciation from the acclaimed film maker Steven Spielberg who was impressed by the 75 seconds animation film Krishna made to pay his tribute to Spielberg.

In making the tribute film, Shenoi used clips from Spielberg’s movies like ET, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Jaws, Schindler’s List, Jurassic Park and Lincoln, the biopic on Abraham Lincoln that got Daniel Day-Lewis his Oscar this year for the best actor.

Made over four months in his spare time, Shenoi used the rotoscoping technique to draw the film’s images and then run it like an animation.
