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!
Meet the Tracers.
Today marks the first installment of Meet the Tracers, a monthly feature that spotlights members of our Mumbai office. Over the coming months, you’ll get acquainted with a bunch of awesome Tracers. But today, we’re going to kick things off with Prasanta Maiti.
Prasanta grew up in West Bengal, but he made his way to Mumbai a few years back to find a VFX job. We’re glad things worked out the way they did, because Prasanta has done an amazing job at Trace.
Over the past year, Prasanta’s attention to detail, reliable artistry and constant enthusiasm have allowed him to rise quickly through the ranks. Today, he’s part of a leadership team that ensures quality control and manages new talent development. Jon Mason, Managing Director at Trace, summed it up nicely: “No matter what position we throw Prasanta into, we know he’ll always rise to the occasion.”
Shortly after joining Trace, we learned more about Prasanta’s fine arts background and passion for artistry. In fact, he created the beautiful painting you see above and also has some serious photography skills! But his talents go well beyond the art world. So if Prasanta ever asks you to play XBOX, do yourself a favor and walk away. The first time he grabbed ahold of an XBOX controller, he won a tournament held at Trace.
Congratulations to Prasanta, and remember to check back next month to see which Tracer is featured.
