The Indian animation industry is one of the largest in the world and Toon Boom was there before it even started.

In this interview on Ottawa’s Chin 97.9 – MirschMasalaRadio, Joan Vogelesang, President and CEO of Toon Boom Animation talks with Indo-Canadian radio host Hunsdeep. During the interview she explains how Toon Boom got started in the Indian marketplace and how her and Toon Boom’s influence has created an Indian animation industry which now employs tens of thousands of highly skilled and creative animators.

The animation community in India exists mainly due to the efforts of Ms. Vogelesang and Toon Boom Animation. In 2005, the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry honored Joan Vogelesang, President and CEO of Toon Boom Animation, with its Lifetime Achievement Award for being instrumental in the development of the Indian animation industry.

Thanks to the management of Chin 97.9 – MirschMasalaRadio and Hunsdeep for providing this audio interview
