This, the 63rd episode of MVP - The Master's Voice Podcast, features pre-eminent thought leader and industry enabler and evangelist Biren Ghose - Chairman CII National AVGC Committee, and Country Head - Technicolor India. Biren is leading the CII team on the major upcoming 3rd Global AVGC & Immersive Media Summit covering Animation, Visual Effects, Gaming and Comics, that will roll out across two days on the 29th and 30th of August 2022 at the Hotel Lalit in New Delhi.
Biren is has been empowering the Media & Entertainment industry for the past more than 20 years. Biren has been doing that not just through the remarkable leadership and growth he has provided to Technicolor India as country head, but also as Chairman for the CII National Committee for AVGC and the Vice Chair for CII’s Media & Entertainment Committee.
The Consortium for Indian Industry, the CII, has always been a very significant enabler of enterprise across sectors in India, and is now set to roll out perhaps the first, single most important in-person (and not virtual) event – the 3rd Global AVGC & Immersive Media Summit covering Animation, Visual Effects, Gaming and Comics, that will roll out across two days on the 29th and 30th of August 2022 at the Hotel Lalit in New Delhi.
Considering the significant contribution of Animation, Video, Gaming and Comics in the digital space, and the quality of immersive-ness they empower digital media with for consumers, I believe the CII Immersive Media Summit is the single largest and most significant on-ground event post-Covid, that every professional, promoter and associate connected with the AVGC space in India and elsewhere, must make it a point to attend.
My conversation with Biren, the druid of M&E, covers the amazing past delivery and the potential of the AVGC industry as a trailblazer within the overall M&E landscape, and how he, as an enabler and industry statesman, sees the AVGC sector playing out over the next few years trajectory and growth. Biren speaks of the drivers of the AVGC industry, including what it is doing to content creation and consumption, and whether and how it is expanding audiences, or perhaps taking share from other existing forms of entertainment.
Biren also shares why AVGC has become a strong government priority, and offers advice and guidance on how India can realize the enormous potential of AVGC. And that future growth in the space will likely be driven by the ABC of AVGC.
Biren offers a deep dive into the upcoming 3rd Global AVGC & Immersive Media Summit, why it deservedly is a standalone event, what it will showcase including some of the important sessions, and what every participant can expect to take away from the event.
This, for me, has been a truly insightful chat, but then,
