2016 Ends On A Good Note. ‘Schirkoa’ Becomes India’s First Animated Film To Reach Oscars

Published on 19 December, 2016 at 5:05 pm By

We need to accept that Indian films, time after time, have successfully failed to make their mark at the Oscars. The reason for this is very evident, our majority of films are filled with typical Bollywood masala – some dishoom dishoom, few larger-than-life dialogues, and an item number. Moreover, they are handsomely promoted to reach the 100 crore mark. Is that what cinema is about? Where is art? Creativity? Imagination?

Hence, to invent a new story-telling formula, there are some really good directors who are leaping into a different world of creative cinema i.e animation. One of them is Ishan Shukla. Ishan, a ‘BIT Palani’ dropout, has created a 14-minute film “Schirkoa” that has been selected among 70 strong contenders in the race to win “Best Animated Short Film” at the Oscars.

The story is set in the city of Bag-heads where a senate member faces a tough choice between political career, brothels, and love for a mysterious woman. A choice that will transform his life and the city in unimaginable ways.

 

Ishan worked on and off on this animated film with a day job for 4 years. He just used his own personal computer to complete the designing and processing part of his characters. Only for this, he deserves a round of applause.

Moreover, ‘Schirkoa’ premiered at Los Angeles on 8th September at the Academy Award qualifying – LA Shorts Film Festival where it won the “Best Animated Short” award.
