From a small Village in Himachal to the World of CGI

From a small Village in Himachal to the World of CGI

Hey there, it's Munish Kumar, and I wanted to take a moment to share my journey with you—a journey that started in the heart of Himachal Pradesh, Kullu, and led me into the captivating world of computer graphics imagery.

Back in 2012, I was just a 15-year-old with a dream, armed only with a modest PC. This computer, a gift from my father after five long years of anticipation, had an Intel Pentium processor, 1 GB of RAM, and no graphics card. It might sound basic, but to me, it was a treasure. You see, my father, a wedding photographer, and my mother, a school peon, worked tirelessly to support me.

School wasn't easy for me; I've had dyslexia, which made academic challenges a constant presence. Additionally, I faced my fair share of bullying. However, amidst these difficulties, I found refuge in the world of computer graphics. Coming from a Hindi medium government school, comprehending tutorials in English was challenging. With no access to fast internet and English-language tutorials tailored beyond my grasp, I resorted to using PDFs and saving web pages. Learning CGI became my sanctuary, my escape from the obstacles that surrounded me.

Crafting my own projects became my passion. From CG/VFX compilation videos to rap music videos (I'm a massive hip-hop fan!), I poured my heart into my creations. They found their way onto YouTube, connecting me with fellow enthusiasts and marking the beginning of my freelancing career in 2016.

"I learned everything the hard way, but now I make tutorial videos in Hindi and share my knowledge with others. So Never Give Up." - Munish Kumar

In 2016, armed with my trusty potato PC, I embarked on a journey to create my first rap music video, "Never Give Up." This project wasn't just a test for my CGI, VFX, and video editing skills; it was a manifestation of my determination and passion for pushing creative boundaries. Everything in the music video, from writing and performing the rap to handling all the CG, VFX, and video editing work, was a one-person show. Despite the numerous crashes my PC endured throughout the process, I never gave up. This project became a turning point, opening doors to new opportunities. Check it out here.

Now, I'm on a mission to share my knowledge through Hindi tutorial videos on my YouTube channel. It's my way of giving back to a community that, like me, faced challenges in learning. My journey, filled with ups and downs, has taught me that dreams have no limits. As I sit here and reflect on how far I've come, I can't help but feel grateful for the passion that kept me going.

Remember, no matter where you come from or what challenges you face, never give up on your dreams. Because just like my journey, yours can lead to extraordinary places.
