Rajesh R. Turakhia

Founder, Director

Rajesh R. Turakhia has made a significant impact in the field of AVGC training across India by creating and successfully executing two leading educational institution brands namely Frameboxx 2.0 and MAAC over the last 25 years. Under his leadership, both institutions have successfully mentored over 2,00,000 students. His vision to enhance the quality and studio readiness of the workforce is reflected in the fact that most of the studios in India have students or animators trained under his tutelage. 

Rajesh’s vision of MAAC began to take shape in 2001 as a Founder. Brimming with an impassioned mindset, Rajesh always wanted to bring a positive impact on the animation industry. He is also the founding force of ’24 FPS’, a revolutionary and industry-recognized competition, to give students and professionals their due recognition and fame in the Animation and VFX industry.

His visionary mindset saw him overlooking the state-of-the-art production studio, Maya Entertainment Limited (MEL) as a CEO and Executive Director. Mentoring the studio from 8 artists to strength of 500 artists, his initiatives soon made MEL one of the top five studios in India. Under his mentorship, MEL worked on some of the country’s most prolific clients like BBC, Electronic Arts, MTV, Activision, Coke, and Rainbow Pvt. Ltd. 

To give students a hands-on experience, Rajesh launched Frameboxx in 2008 with the now sought-after, ‘Incubation Centre’ where students got to hone their skills on LIVE projects. It was a real production scenario of client servicing, providing quality output within the stipulated deadlines, and cracking deliverables as a team.
Despite achieving milestones, Rajesh was still hungry to make it big for his students. He soon worked towards placing Frameboxx on the global map by collaborating with reputed academic institutions like Seneca College in Canada and Anglia Ruskin University in the United Kingdom to award international certifications. To give students an extra edge, Frameboxx even secured partnership deals with prominent Universities in India. As of today, Frameboxx is a proud and authorized Training partner of the Media and Entertainment Skill Council (MESC) and has its curriculum aligned to the QPNOS (a part of NSDC Skill India Mission Project) standards. 
To raise the bar for continuous development, Rajesh launched Frameboxx in a whole new avatar. Coined as ‘Frameboxx 2.0’ in 2019, the refashioned establishment became a ‘Premier Academy for Media & Creative Arts’- an amalgamation of various creative and technical skills required by the media and entertainment industry. Frameboxx 2.0 broadened the gamut of creative design and visual art by curating verticals of new media technologies and creative research in the fields of Gaming, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and more. 
Frameboxx is operated and supervised by industry experts and professionals with over 20 years of experience to their credit. To leave no stone unturned, Rajesh engaged with internationally acclaimed artists such as Steve Wright to design a curriculum in path-breaking software. He even ensured to institutionalize an advisory board and governing panel for keeping a constant watch on quality content. Appropriate measures are taken to ensure the examples when quoted are from the post-production pipeline as opposed to dated use cases.  Frameboxx 2.0 got its due credit in the form of an honorary mention in the ‘Top 25 International Animation Schools and Colleges - 2020 International Rankings’ by Animation Career Review.
Rajesh has made his presence count by being proactive in several industry bodies and participating as a key speaker at many international events in India and overseas. Currently, he is a part of the Sub-Task Force (Skilling) for formulating and suggesting the policy for the AVGC ecosystem. He is also a member of the CII Sub Committee on AVGC and Immersive Media. His relationships with fellow industry leaders have made him one of the most influential personalities that can make a valuable difference in the field of Arts and Entertainment.
