'SIKUAQ' (is an inupiak eskimo word) means 'thin ice' in english.
The film revolves around two friends and tries to put forth the issue of Global Warming.
The film took around a month to be completed.
Five of us worked on one week of pre-production and another one week on animating clay.
Two of us, nikhil n me worked on the post-production.. from loads of clean ups, to getting the timing right, additional animation, lips, sound n music etc etc ..
The most funfilled part was when we decided to do a short end title sequence of the two characters dancing. My friend Nikhil animated the Eskimo and I the Penguin.
We screened the film in the Audi sometime back..
n yep.. people liked it.. Last week it managed to bag an award for the best animation film at a national fest in Kolkata.
ummm..anyway.. I hope we get to animate some more clay in the future n make loads n loads of stopmotion/claymation/pixilation films.. guess this is just the begining.
