Manick Sorcar was selected as one
of THE TOP 100 PEOPLE
by JEFFERSON THE MAGAZINE, Golden, Colorado, USA.
|In its 1997-1998 issue (page 77), the magazine wrote a lengthy
article about Sorcar and his significant
contribution to the "ArtsWorld" for which he was selected.
The magazine is published by Golden Media Inc., the publisher of
Colorado's oldest newspaper The Golden Transcript. Excerpts from
artist in multimedia, an internationally published cartoonist,
Manick Sorcar spends his days as president and chief electrical
engineer of Butterweck-Sorcar Engineering in Denver. During the
nights, Sorcar follows his artistic sides.
...Sorcar came to the United States in 1970 as a student. He
earned a master's degree in electrical engineering....within two
years of his start with Howard Butterweck & Company, Sorcar
was promoted to vice president. Two years later he became a partner.
The company incorporated and changed its name to Butterweck-Sorcar
Engineering Inc .... His work included the lighting design for
all three concourses at Denver International Airport (a $6 billion
dollar USA Govt. project) and fire alarm and security system for
the Denver Convention Center....
|....Recently Sorcar released 'The Woodcutter's Daughter', which
was based on a classic book of children's fables from his native
country of India. Sorcar's fourth television production incorporated
live action and animation through the tale, which was intended
as a cultural bridge to take the English speaking audience to
introduce viewers to the simplicity of village life, native culture
and a fairy tale of another land. It was produced in Sorcar's
Arvada studio...Prior to 'The Woodcutter's Daughter', Sorcar had
other award-winning animated/live action videos including 'Deepa
& Rupa: A Fairy Tale From India' which received several awards
and beat out 'Sesame Street' in the 33rd annual International
Film Festival of New York."
