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.
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.
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.
