The Press Conference
I must admit I thought it odd that a yet-to-be school could stage a press conference and get coverage about their new program, but Sumeru did and got about 30 newspaper reporters there. I even had to answer some tough questions, just like I was CJ on "The West Wing."
But it went well, and was given a boost by the director of the Pune Chamber of Commerce showing up and supporting the program quite eloquently. This is the gentleman that got the government to create an industrial zone (tax incentives, etc.) to lure the IT industry to Pune, which seems to have worked beyond their wildest dreams, and now he's trying to get the government to do the same for animation.
And at least these pictures were still on the camera.
