The Young Filmmakers: Aayushi & Surbhi

It is a proud moment for Aayushi and Surbhi. They completed their first short film and returned to their alma mater (Banasthali University) to showcase. It was a gala event when the former students held the stage and the attention of the faculty. The current students made wonderful posters for the screening.

After a standing applause, Aayushi and Surbhi answered the many inquisitive questions about the process, about specialisation, about the world beyond the college walls and in general about two girls’ journey into the digital art world.

It is the core of our company culture to enable our studio team to take part in individual creative projects. We believe in supporting our members to evolve as artists and create monumental body of work. The progress that Aayushi and Surbhi has shown in such a short span of time is incredible. As a company we continue to nurture new talents and give home to the creatives.

The Film Synopsis:
The world has forgotten her and her voice lost in the hustle of the living. Amma is a ghost to her people, a forgotten memory. Her only companion is a slipper obsessed dog. Her old pot sags and the thread snaps; the old tree loses its last leaf. In the autumn of life, the god of death visits. Finally a journey. But even death ignores her. And she is left alone again with no company.

The Backdrop:
Based in the narrow dusty lanes of Nivai (Rajasthan), Amma is a real person and her loneliness is a lived reality. This film is an experimentation in traditional animation by merging both elements of 2D and 3D. The movement of the characters are in 2D and have been placed in a 3D background. The tone is realistic with a brief interpolation of surrealism. Relatability is the core approach to the animation and the story.

The Filmmakers:
Aayushi Sharma and Surbhi Goyal are ardent students of animation. Their interest lies in the field of storytelling and creating relatable environments. This is their maiden film and the first in their journey to create an unique yet universal visual language.

Baba Toon interviews Aayushi

Born to a teacher of Mathematics in the village of Rewana, childhood was mostly calculated within definitive lines. She was named to reflect the blessing that was her birth. Yet life was mostly restricted within the compound walls. Lacking feminine aspirations to play girl, she spent more time jumping around than playing with dolls. Her drawing was a means to recreate the inner understanding. Studies never held her interest and she drifted into detailing self reflecting inner worlds.

Name: Aayushi Sharma | Education: B. Design from Banasthali University

An Interview with the intern.

What is animation?

Aayushi: There is inherent movement in all things. The study of this movement and the depiction of the same is animation. It is a step by step witness to the transition of things.

What part of your life involves art?

Aayushi: Art is my way of personalizing my environment and my world. I keep drawing on all surfaces and objects. I doodle a lot. It is my way of making any object truly mine.

What are the markers of a good animation?

Aayushi: A good animation is deftly able to convey its core ideas. To be able to ‘express’ is paramount to the expression.

What else other than animation excites you?

Aayushi: Oh, I love sports. I used to play volleyball and nowadays I am trying my hand at table tennis at the studio. I also jive freestyle. The subtle colours and aura of Chinese lifestyle intrigues me.

Do you have any final words?

Aayushi: The responsibility of our actions lies with us. We make our own choices.
