Meet Shreyas Sonwane, a Fledgling 3D Artist with an Emmy Nomination and 65 Million TikTok Views Already Under His Belt

After seeing his first animated film, “The Incredibles,” as a  young Indian boy, Shreyas Sonwane had big dreams. He was awestruck by the quality and versatility in the images presented to him on the screen and immediately wanted to understand how it all worked. 

So throughout the rest of grade school and high school Shreyas researched the animated arts to find out how he could become part of that world. After high school, he searched for ways to obtain professional instruction in the field but was unable to find schools in India that provided diplomas in animation and visual effects (VFX). He decided to approach his schooling from the next best angle and learn about business first and obtained his Bachelors in Commerce while also attending classes in animation and VFX. 

After this accomplishment, Sonwane found himself at a crossroads. Should he take a risk and leave his country and move to the land of dreams to fulfill his own, or remain in India and take a more mainstream job? At the time, his parents were unsure that animation was a lucrative career, but after seeing his capabilities in college, they fully stood behind him and his efforts. 

And with his family’s support, Sonwane left India for the Savannah School of Arts and Design. It was both a frightening and exciting time for Shreyas. He was on his own for the first time but managed to meet some forever friends, gain copious amounts of professional training, build a professional network and take direction from knowledgeable mentors. 

His determination and enthusiasm for his projects gained him his Emmy-nominated Commercial for Blue India. Yet Shreyas had always made a pact with himself to remain humble, be kind and treat everyone with the respect they deserve. This mindset has served him well over the years.

“I still remember how a person who once delivered a pizza to me at a shooting location turned out to be the person who landed me my first internship and made a huge impact in my life,” Shreyas shared.

Even after the success he has experienced, Shreyas still floors this creed. He enjoys collaborating with other creators to turn good ideas into mind-blowing ones, and he remains dedicated to pushing the boundaries and consistently learning about the space. 

Since his college days, Shreyas recently moved to Boston, MA, and is looking to open his own design studio called Morphy Design Studios. He plans to offer a full range of 3D Generalist services, including bathroom designs, interior designs, 3D sculptures, jewelry designs, abstracts, 3D logo integrated short videos, filters, motion graphics and commercial services.

Looking at his work, it’s clear that Shreyas is deeply compassionate about what he does. His work reflects a great amount of attention to the small details that make the big picture end result shine. He has worked with many high-profile clients and is excited about what his future in 3D arts will look like.
