Hustler : Moses Mutyaba – G-Coin Animations

That is one weird name, G-coin.
It’s inspiration I drew from a brother of mine in the US who goes by the name G-Coin. He is a music producer and my biggest inspiration. He has funded all my small projects before this, I owed him that much.

What’s your expertise?
I’m an artist and at G-Coin we give life to drawings, imaginations and dreams of all kinds. We work on commercials, illustrations for magazines, restoring old photos and anything illustrative. Art is a talent but animation deals with working with software and I owe my knowledge to a lot of dedication and long days at the Internet cafés.

When did you start?
I had this dream back in school, since I was into animations and I loved action figures. There was Super Strikers, a comic book that lured me into imaginations of actually seeing the action figures move. I put time and effort into learning animation and two years down the road, I got hired by a certain firm in Nairobi and a year later I started my own animation firm. We now are three months old.

Have you handled any big projects?
Not gigantic, but a few of my friends with media hubs in Kenya want me to finish part of their projects. But the company is working on an animation project of its own. It will be mega, give it a year.

Are there shortcomings in this business?
Well, apart from smudges and spills when drawing, I don’t think there are any shortcomings. Only that Ugandans don’t have time for animations. They say cartoons are for kids.
