Gunvan Bharat (MCA CET 2017) – Animated Promo

This summer, I was commissioned for two animated videos to promote Gunvan Bharat’s registrations openings — one which I’m not really proud of (given the rushed deadline), and another which I really like how it turned out. This post is about the latter.

The brief for this one given to me was simple, frame-by-frame animation (aka, frames drawn by hand), with the style being nothing but clean lines.

Of course, there were aspects of the storyboard that couldn’t be quickly done by hand given the tight deadline, so I had to resort to cheating — using backface culling and motion tweens in 3D space — while still giving it the appearance of hand-drawn animation.

The tools used in this project were Krita (for frame-by-frame animation), Synfig and Blender (for everything else).

Doobbear — Motion Graphics Promo

A few years back I was asked to help RollingStache Studios create a promotional video for a brand new social media app called Doobbear. So, with every ounce of my skill at my disposal, from storyboarding, to animation, I did just that, along with help from artists from the studio handling illustrations, certain aspects of motion graphics, as well as the final compilation and sound design.

Since I was proficient in them — and because it was entirely possible as well as convenient — I stuck through the entire project with opensource software, such as Inkscape, Krita, Synfig and Blender.

dMACQ ECM — Video Presentation

I worked with RolligStache Studios as an animator on a video presentation for our client dMACQ. The animation needed to be timed to the video, so I focused on animating individual elements instead we could compose them as we go, except for the city / angel and sole motion graphics scenes.

Polar Detective — Prologue

When a famous business tycoon Rudolf Rednose orders a vastly expensive and rare plate of Sushi, he probably never thought he’d be a target of a sinister crime. But why burgle the little place of Wallace Walrus to begin with?

Perhaps the mystery goes deeper, and may cross roads with a notorious criminal wanted for food thefts.

A grand game is afoot. Stay tuned!
