A story called “Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar” by Fantastic 4

In the far land of Fudge Cake, an ordinary marshmallow was challenged by the Major.
He was to prove his worth by braving the ravages of time, atop Marshmallow Tower.

But ours was an ambitious marshmallow.
“Oh…this is easy. A cakewalk!” said he, tragically, thinking not of Spaghetti sticks and their fragility.
So he began with zeal and dreams of the crown, but overconfidence and haste pulled him down.

Though the Major Support System- Tape, Thread and Scissors-aided him well. At the last moment his tower gave and, humbled, to the ground he fell.

Now no one would sing him songs of praise, for arrogance had him beat. Still he would achieve some measure of success, not admit defeat. He would not soon forget these painful trials-taking care, testing himself at every stage. And while he couldn’t reach the heights he desired, our Marshmallow had, indeed, come of age.

The Marshmallow Championship: A Visual Storytelling Workshop

When we visited Daulat Ram College (University of Delhi), our aim was involve the literature student into the process of visualization. To engage them into the journey of visual imagining. We presented them the MARSHMALLOW CHALLENGE.

The project was to create the highest stable structure using 20 spaghetti sticks, thread, tape and a single marshmallow. Within stipulated time, the teams under the flags of “3 Pipers“, “Analytics“, “Marshmallow Whatevers“, “Fantastic 4” and “SMS” built their own towers.

After Q&A related to the task, we ask them to write the story of their Marshmallow Challenge. Translation is the act of generating meaning. It is a process of transmutation. We ask them then to depict their story into a string of images. We encourage them to draw their narrative into a storyboard.

We selected the best story and storyboard, we reworked it and created a whiteboard animation to showcase their visual understanding.

Molding Words into Clay: Visual Storytelling Workshop

We asked the supercalifragilisticexpialidocious participants of the VISUAL STORYTELLING WORKSHOP to create an image of themselves in words. Being able littérateurs, they framed themselves in poetic phrases. And after a discussion on adaptation and translation, the magnificent Manas Mathur (sculptor par excellence) guided them to mold words into clay.

This is a showcase of the spectacle that followed. We are humbled to enable you in your visual journey.

Visual Storytelling Workshop at Daulat Ram College (Day 1)

THE MARSHMALLOW BOOT CAMP

After a brief introduction by Samana Madhuri (the lecturer in charge), Sumanto began the session with the story of the three cave mothers. Our CEO Aditya Singh took over from there to enumerate the four principles of visual storytelling.

AC introduces Major General Fudgecake (his alter ego) after talking briefly on the importance of collaborations in arts. Major then takes over the workshop in order to achieve his mandate to find the greatest Marshmallow Tower maker. The day proceeded with lot of fun and friendly banter. The teachers were the most mischievous of the lot.

Some of the towers were success and reached the stars, some were leaning towards greatness before the fall, some never took off the ground and some were whatevers.

After analyzing the challenges, vision, time management, individual roles and exercise takeaways, the students wrote and presented their marshmallow story.

Moon’s masterclass in emotion depiction and character design was a spectacular success and enabled the groups to make their own storyboard for their marshmallow stories. The day 1 ended with our promise to create an animated video of their best story. We will meet again on Tuesday at our studio for the second day of the workshop.
