TAKE IT EASY

You Sitting in plane and one beautiful girl comes and sits next to you.
Y0u say I love you.
She : What the hell. .... CHAATAAAKKK !!!.......

And your 3 hrs. journey turns into 3 Yrs.

Second Scenario, She comes next to you. You introduce yourself to her, exchange one or two magazines, share jokes. And you find just 5 minute before plane took-off and why its landing now.
And in last if nothing you at least ends up as friends.

Am I gone mad talking all crap here on Monsters. No ...Actually I want to share one concept of Story telling . How we should we move into the story. Starting any story is quite challenging task in itself.
Same like theatre stage. Many monsters knows Chippy keeps telling about Strong Entry & exit from the stage. Coming Back to the point.
You don't bombard your audience in very start of the movie. You let them grab their seats, Feel them comfortable and smoothly take them into the story. Once they are into the story, you keep moving and catch up the pace with time. Wise man says Example is twice effective then words. So wisely I,m taking to two movies.

1. Chicken Little and
2. Finding Nemo

I feel Chicken Little is one of the weak opening I've seen. In very beginning we see so many things happening. Suddenly main character pops up ..." Hey Sky is falling...Run...Run.. blah...blah... "
.... WHAT MAN ???......














I'm not saying just opening sequence was the reason behind Chicken little's failure, there may be more...but this is one of the reason.

And in contrast with chicken little see Finding Nemo's opening sequence. ..BEAUTIFUL !!!..
Just experience the pace, built up, then journey.... lot to learn from Nemo.
















I won't forget to say going slowly into story is the only way....but this can be Axiom. Otherwise there is many movie which stars with ...BANG !...
Kung Fu Panda,Armageddon are few to name.
So all depends on your sense of story telling. My purpose was to highlight this point. I hope I did the Job.

Huaaa !!!

coraline

hey guys just stumbled across this pretty impressive film trailer! it's called coraline (from the director of "The nightmare before christmas"). it's a stopmotion film with facial animation done in CG (if i recall correctly). and it sure has turned out inviting enough to check it out!!

india shines at the OSCARS!!




i'm so happy for TWO reasons! one: one of my all time fave animated films WALL-E bagged the oscar for "best animated feature film". two (and this is a BIG one): TWO INDIANS HAVE WON THE OSCARS!! resul pookutty and THE A R RAHMAN (for 'slumdog millionaire')! although this is not the first time for an indian to get an oscar, but man this sure is one PROUD moment for us, esp A R Rahman bagging it TWICE the same night (a record for india)!!
this only proves how TALENTED we indians are!! it has really inspired me enough to realize that if u work SINCERELY hard and smart enough, u'll surely go ALL that way to dazzle and shine! so guys let's learn from them and get inspired enough to come up with animations that wud make the world STAND up and take notice, and perhaps one day fetch the OSCAR!!

JAI HO!! :D

Need to stop this !!!



Really sorry ...don't want to discourage anybody ...but where is all this going ? ...global Animation Industry is already cursing us ...and how can they talk about quality and all ...how can they promote it in such words ...seriously, isn't it actually affecting everybody in worse way ? ...it all just feel awful ...I hate this a lot ...i mean there is some really cool work going on (take that cadbury add for instance) and then this ...feeling sick man ! ...kill me for this ! :(

...agin sorry to post something like this ...but a discussion is needed !

pantomime + gear change WIP (blocking 1st pass - storytelling poses)

THIRD SEM!!! and it's ALREADY rocking! whazzap guys?! well here's my first assignment (gearchange + pantomime). it's just the initial pass with just storytelling poses.

i chose a BANGALORE traffic policeman! he seems quite an interesting character to experiment with! lol :D

in my clip, i want him to be a very callous bored traffic policeman who's been doing this same old job for CENTURIES! and he DOES get a li'l strict when someone doesnt follow traffic rules! hope the characteristics are readable!

do lemme know where i'm going wrong and how i can improve the acting. thanks!
