Why do Most Ideas Fail?

Sometimes even the most brilliant of ideas fail to inspire. The idea may come to you in a thunderstorm or in a tea cup. It may land on your doorsteps in a wicker basket or float as a cloud as you look up. It may come rowing in a paper boat or maybe dug up from an ancient burial.

Yet an idea may fuse, may rot, maybe forgotten. If it is denied. If it is ignored. If it fails to sparkle, it dies a silent perpetual death. And then is locked forever in the dark recesses of the basement of ideas.

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.

The Storyboard for “Live More with Neropure” Video

Client: Neropure | Motto: Live More
Product: Stainless steel water tanks
Target: Institutions, schools, hotels, hospitals and homes
Clientele: Shiv Nadar School, Indiabulls, DLF, CK Birla Hospital, Radisson, Ramada, Uppal’s and et cetera.

The initial frames foregrounds the importance of the motto “live more” by depicting different scenarios where people are ‘living it up’. Moving forward it showcases how Neropure fulfills the motto by focusing on the three aspects of ‘health’, ‘comfort’ and ‘ease’ idealised within the images of drops of water. The next frame equates quality of life with water. After a technical know-how about the stainless steel tanks, the storyboard ends with a glimpse of the brand’s clientele.

Baba Toon Interviews Himanshu, the Animator

Born in the god town of Mathura, lack of inspiration turned Himanshu (aka Aeolus Ikki) into a dull boy. Though he was bullied several times yet he failed to realize. And thus eventually his bullies became his friends.  A self-confessed shy guy, he studied from Grace Convent Senior Secondary School, and recalls being “scared of girls”. One of the founding members of the Bat Hunting Gang, he would often be seen chasing bats with sticks, paper guns and CD frisbee.

Baba Toon: How did you get into the world of animation?

Himanshu: As a child I was hooked to cartoons at the first sight. Ninja Robots, Pokémon, Gundam, Digi Monsters, Captain Planet, et al.  But in Mathura, one either becomes an engineer or a Chartered Accountant. I moved to Delhi to study CA. It took me two years to convince my parents to allow me to drop the course and join animation.

Baba Toon: What is animation?

Himanshu: It is the world that I inherited from my childhood. Living in an imaginary world, moving in different dimensions. The possibilities are endless- both good and bad. Animation allows one to become the creator. It is an illusion of reality while interacting with other worlds. It encompasses everything.

Baba Toon: What is your experience in the animation industry?

Himanshu: Relying on my institution was a big mistake. The method of instruction was outdated by 10 years. The teachers kept leaving all the time. My zeal for traditional animation got me interested in motion graphics. I have worked in three different companies before I found Brainpan Studio. I was betrayed and was overworked. Yet I got to wear many hats and weave over hundred projects.

Baba Toon: What part of your life involves animation?

Himanshu: I relate personalities to myself. I live my life according to that code. I create images to reflect personas that I hold. I build original characters for my own self. Who wouldn’t want to live in an animated world?

Baba Toon: What are the markers of a good animation?

Himanshu: Precision, quality, motivation, experience and skill are essential in developing good animation. It changes according to mood. Happy and motivated animator creates good animation. One needs to enjoy, imagine and create/destroy.

Baba Toon: What else other than animation excites you?

Himanshu: Music, maybe.

Baba Toon: Do you have any last words?

Himanshu: You don’t live in one but many worlds. Each world carries a destiny, from a peasant to a king. What you choose to become is something for you to decide. For everything is illusion or reality.
