A 19-year-old Bengaluru student was paid the ultimate compliment of his student life when on Wednesday when his hero Steven Spielberg wrote him a letter of appreciation after his own animated work caught the legendary film maker’s eye.
The handwritten letter of appreciation from Spiel¬berg sees him use the word ‘impress’ not once, but twice and calling his short film ”sweet” and “respectful”.
“Getting this letter from my childhood hero was such a shock,” said an super excited Krishna Bala Shenoi, second year student of Animation, who couldn’t contain his excitement.
“Getting this letter from my hero was such a shock, I was shivering. My knees were wobbly. I am so thankful to Steven Spielberg for being gracious enough to have taken the time to write me such a kind letter. I am convinced that his goodness isn’t restricted to just his films,” says Krishna Bala Shenoi, Second year animation student.
The letter of Steven & the work of Krishna will motivate thousands of Indian animators & especially students studying animation as a career, to continue work with enthusiasm & make India proud on every creative platform.
