Meet Prithi Amarnath
Some people know exactly what they want to do when they grow up, but for Producer Prithi Amarnath, she never imagined her degree in Mathematics and Computer Applications would lead to a career in animation and gaming when she started her career at Prasad Video (part of Prasad Studios, Chennai) as a CG animator in 1989. What followed was an impressive body of work, including time spent at the gaming powerhouses EA, Rockstar, Sony, Activision, THQ, Midway, Bioware, and Ubisoft, just to name a few.
Prithi joined Technicolor seven years ago, initially working on the animated series Back at the Barnyard. The move to gaming afforded her the opportunity to work on titles like NFL, and older games like Silent Hill, Hitman, Darksiders, Blitz, Saint’s Row 2, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Part 2, Darkspore, and Book of Dragons. Her personal approach to animation centers around teamwork: each artist has something to contribute and its only when everyone collaborates and works together towards a common goal, that excellence is achieved.
In her free time, Prithi enjoys art and loves dabbling in different mediums, like watercolor, oil, acrylic, collage, mixed media, and fabric art.
