Dan Vivoli, svp of marketing at NVIDIA, explained: "Both George Bruder and Marlon Montgomery have a wealth of experience in post-production for feature films, animation, broadcast commercials, and music videos and we're delighted to be bringing their expertise to Indian audiences. Because NVIDIA is a neutral party, we are ideally positioned to enable initiatives like this, which will help the DCC community in India realize its creative potential and take its place at the centre of the international stage."
