About the project

The future is here and people are leaving to explore the untouched - the last frontier! Simultaneously, a ten-year-old deals with an emotional turmoil of realizing that his father is also set on a 'One Way Journey'.


 

 

Sounds interesting? Here is what's going on!

 

My name is Suyog Khadikar, I'm a student of Animation at IDC School of Design, IIT Bombay.  I have begun work on this animated short film that mainly deals with a child's emotions in this strange but not unimaginable future.


 

A little bit on the progress 


I started the project in May, since then, the story, script, storyboarding, etc. have been done. The work on character design, backgrounds etc. also is sorted. So far, I have managed to complete a truck-load of rough animations. The remainder work at hand is the final animations, composition and sound editing. I need to raise the funds in order to finish the pending work, and showcase it at Chitrakatha through the Script 2 Screen initiative. My film will then, get a wider audience, recognition, and feedback it deserves. Read more about the fest  here - Chitrakatha. Do take look at my blog for more on progress: The One Way Journey 


More on the unique concept 

The idea for this film struck me when I heard news about people signing up for the Mars settlement mission. Being well acquainted with a few children who live around my locality, I wondered how they'd react to this huge step in the history of mankind and to understand the minute but strong effect such events have on innocent minds.

Since the timeline of this film is set in the near future, when Elon Musk will be all set to bridge the gap between Earth and Mars, this project will make even more relevance in the coming years. If this project builds itself through crowdfunding and among the audience, I see it gaining even more audience in the next 10 years or so.



Why do I want to showcase at Chitrakatha?

Chitrakatha International Student's Film Festival is a brilliant effort of Sir Sekhar Mukherjee, where we animators get to bring out our ideas and meet people who share our interests. National Institute of Design is India's premier design institution, having my film chosen and screened here will promise my growth.

 

Why crowdfunding?

Only through crowdfunding will I be able to take this project to the next level. I want this film to represent our thoughts and our efforts across countries. Various International Film Festivals around the globe give us a chance to exhibit our works. As I'd need to put in a little money for better quality, crowdfunding is my ONLY option. I have already been chosen by Wishberry and NID to compete, now I just need you to come forward and join me in my journey, to get where I need to.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 35000 in Animation

Rs. 25000 in Sound Editing

Rs. 32000 in Compositing

Rs. 8000 in Admin Cost


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

As I am working all by myself, this project will take a longer time for completion. Also, as it’s an ALL OR NOTHING campaign, if I don’t meet the target, the project won’t happen.

Why should you believe me and why should you fund this project?

I have made quite a few short films on my own. But the exposure of those have been limited only to my IIT-B’s Design School junta. The motive of crowdfunding is not just the money, but also about spreading the word about animated short films being made in India. I will be delighted if I interest even a student or two to pursue animation as a career.

What is this initiative all about?

Wishberry and National Institute of Design (NID) have come forward with this initiative — Script 2 Screen. It encourages animation in the country by making sure students can screen their films at Chitrakatha, a biennial, international festival where the best of the Industry come forward to celebrate and notice talent. We entered the competition and were selected to raise funds via crowdfunding. Through this we will be able to finish our student films and showcase them at Chitrakatha. This is a huge platform for college students as well as those who’ve just finished college! We will be able to show our work to experts and gain so much exposure!

How do the backers benefit off of it?

No matter how much you contribute, there are aplenty of cool rewards and surprises. Feel free to claim your rewards and grab them before they are all claimed!!!
