Rajan Kapila

Location Designer, Copernicus Studios

Rajan Kapila has been working in the animation industry for the past 10 years and has enjoyed every part of it. He has had the great joy of working on some incredible projects such as Angry Birds: Summer Madness, Nature Cat, Care Bears: Unlock the Magic, Give a Mouse a Cookie, and many, many, more. Over his time in the Animation Industry, he has been able to experience many aspects of the production pipeline that he feels has been a great influence whenever working on various projects. Currently working as a location designer and before that a storyboard artist, he has always been a storyteller and believes that working in Animation is his true calling. Rajan said "I am here to inspire, educate, and entertain through my stories" and it is with honour that he has come to TAAFI's Big Pitch competition "to present my stories to the world and discover a platform to showcase a truly entertaining and inspiring story for the world to see."
