Tired of being the judge and executioner, Santa took a break this year. The fields of good and bad is an ever converging mirror. Santa meets Baba Toon. Cheers to festivities, to holidays, and to cheer.
The world has been broken into a million little shards. Cities collapse and lives are broken into pieces that will never come together ever again. The age of experience is deeply seeped in violence and politics of power. The belief in the omnipotence has driven humanity to the brink of utter destruction. The world that has dawned upon us is the memory of dust storms hurling towards us.
The only hope in this conundrum is the age of innocence. The only hope is the unsullied vision of the young lives. Let them be free. Let us not teach the young the ways of our world. Let them be innocent. And from the ashes of this corrupted world, a beautiful and pristine universe will emerge.
One Saturday the team huddles at the studio to experiment with stop motion animation.
Here is the story after the shoot:
Pluto drinks milk from the Korova Milk Bar. Moon bears the weight of the table, the studio, the state, the country, the world like Sisyphus in depression. Ankit stares blank and stares hard; metamorphosing into Deep Thought. Jatin stares far and stares vague; contemplating questioning 42.
AC falls like the giants collapse; asking the universe to bend into his arms.
Support team: Ani, the migratory bird. Tau, the guardian of V. Shashank, the extraterrestrial consultant.
Missing from Action: Adi, the CEO + Tech Support. Komil, the Baker of Fleet street. Arvind, getting married.
Phantom Bluestar 44E is sent to ArchKnot Zelta VI to investigate the disturbance detected by the fringe satellite NorboTwine IX. ArchKnot Zetla VI is the graveyard of the Stellar Ships. Most Nuclear Dust Vehivles (NDV) are sent here to retire. Salvaging from this planet is banned under the Law of Archeneid. But NorboTwine IX which monitors Code 9 planets detected the presence of large organic mass in the periphery. Phanton Bluestar 44E is tier 1 patrol ship of the NueyerXelta.

This Saturday was a day of epic fun. The team got together for a special project. Our experiment with stop motion animation. Using wooden clips and other office supplies we designed the motto. AC took the photographs. Ankit, Pluto and Moon built the words. Ani was here to help us out too. Moon calls him the migratory bird. Later we had pizza and rearranged furniture.
The project was for the title animation of 100 Pipers’ “The Good You Can” series.

Today is International Tea Day. It is a day to sip your favourite brew. It is also a day to remember about the impact of global tea trade on the workers and growers. Tea refreshes us from the daily grind and helps us share a moment. But let us also take a moment to think about the living conditions of the thousands of plantation labourers who work daily to make this happen. Let us support ethically procured tea. Let us drink responsibly.
What is your favourite tea?
Troy is now immortalised in the art of Diana Necşulescu. He has been cloned into the imaginary universe. And now he will live forever; eating, barking and playing ball. Thank you, Diana for this gorgeous depiction of our goofy studio dog. Diana is a kind of a Dr. Doolittle of the sketching world. The animals speak in her paintings. She is a wonderful portrait artist and her work with colours is incredible.
