Spielberg praises Indian student for animated tribute

A Bangalore-based animator and film buff, who created a short film as a tribute to his film idol Steven Spielberg, has received a hand-written note from the legendary director, praising the effort.

s9kna Bala Shenoi, a student at Bangalore's Srishti School of Art Design and Technology and a contributor to the Chicago Sun Times newspaper, uploaded the film to YouTube along with an article titled "Steven Spielberg: My Animated Tribute".

The article was published by the Sun Times' film critic Roger Ebert on the newspaper's website.

“I think I’ve said enough to get my point across: Spielberg means a lot to me. This animated tribute to him took me about four months to make, in part because frame-by-frame rotoscoping is time-consuming and tricky, and also because I’m not at all experienced in animation. And my numerous software and hardware hiccups might’ve also contributed to that long production time.

The heartfelt piece and the film - a montage of clips from some iconic Spielberg films, including Lincoln, ET, Schindlers List and Indian Jones - caught the eye of the great filmmaker who said the film was "sweet and respectful" and congratulated Shenoi for his "image choices and clever transitions" which gave the tribute a "real narrative".
