Writer and Director
My name is Kaushal Magodia and I am the director of the film, "STRENGTHS". I originally hail from Mumbai, India. I arrived in San Francisco, California in the fall of 2017 to pursue MFA in Animation and VFX from the Academy of Art University. After finishing my Master's and gaining a major in 3D Animation, I started looking out for Animation jobs around the United States as every new graduate does. Right after my graduation, I found my first job at a studio called, "The Third Floor Studios". Here, is where I started my visualization journey. While working on the Hollywood projects in the visualization industry I was able to learn a lot of different software and also understood the importance of camera angles for storytelling. It is also where I realized that I have a neck for writing stories as well. Hence, I started making small animated videos and forming stories around the same, and uploading them on my different social media profiles. One of the short animated shorts that I created was, "Alternative". Uploading it over the internet made me realize that I was getting a lot of positive feedback, which then motivated me to write a story for, "Strengths". I participated in a Bay Area competition/school called, "Buildspace". Via this, I managed to write the script for this film. After finishing the script I realized the potential it has to be a feature-length film and soon I decided to turn this into the same.
