The new Trace space.
We’re proud to announce that the new Trace office is open for business. This expansive space brings the feel of a New York-based VFX company to Mumbai. We could go on…and we will.
Our new office is big – 4,200 square feet to be exact. That’s four times the size of our old space. Between our two shifts, we can comfortably hold over 200 employees. And with 14-foot ceilings, we no longer have to warn clients to duck when they enter our conference room.
Jon Mason, Managing Director at Trace, captured the excitement. “This new space allows us to continue our growth and take on a wider variety of projects, including a large emphasis on 3D. We’re thrilled with how it turned out and happy to call it home.”
Meet the Tracers.
For this edition of Meet the Tracers, we’d like to talk about a guy who keeps everything at Trace running smoothly: Prasad Dorkade.
While growing up in Ratnagiri, Prasad loved to learn about India’s rich history. Unlike some of his friends, he looked forward to history class. But school wasn’t his only interest. In his free time, he loved playing cricket and became known for his table tennis skills.
Prasad joined the Trace team as a runner in July of 2011. He impressed us from the get go. Before we knew it, he was taking on more responsibilities and doing a great job at keeping the whole office in order.
“With his respect for others and ability to get things done at any cost, Prasad exemplifies Trace’s culture of creativity,” said Varun Parange, Head of Production at Trace. “He over delivers on every task and has a very bright future.”
Lastly, a bit of bad news for all the single ladies out there: Prasad recently got married.
We’ll be back soon to honor another Trace employee!
Meet the Tracers.
It’s starting to sound like working at Trace has changed the way Asha sees things. She told us that Avatar’s animation and visual effects make it the most amazing movie of the last 10 years. But don’t worry, Tom and Jerry will always have a special place in her heart.
Stay tuned to see which Tracer is featured next!
Trace is on the Move.
