That was fun to watch and as an Animator myself, I would like to point out that the very designingof such animation films involves a high level of collaboration. For example, in our film‘Hum Chitra Banate Hain’ (We make Images).We work together with Sher Singh, a a Bhil artist from Madhya Pradesh. Sher Singh andother artists from the Bhil community with whom we worked were quite shy to begin with.They had not even seen an animation film before in their life. So, they had no idea what theprocess involved. But as we began to appreciate each others expertise, they shared many storiesfrom there folklore which enriched the film in so many ways. Later, Sher Singh and I dida story book for children based on the same film.. Let me share with you a small except fromthe film..That was wonderful and congratulations on the National Award for this work. Animationis of course, a great example of collaboration. So, is any film making for that matter.I was just thinking about that.Camera, rolling, module 6 2 by 2 by 2. Great, action.Film making is all about practicing collaboration. Here in this studio we have so many peopleeach with their own specializations coming together to make this series of videos forthe course. The collaboration began right at the idea stage, when we called on expertslike you to contribute. And I too drew on other peoples thoughts,ideas, books, the internet as well as my own thinking.Then we put together the scripts and had various people read them critically. We have now cometo the recording stage with all these busy people working around us while we appear tobe calmly saying what we have on screen. I would like us to watch a video which isspecifically about collaborative design. This is from Oban University in the US. The studentsin the industrial design program have worked on assistive technology devices for the disabled.This was a collaboration with the centre specializing in disabilities on their campus.Follow the link in the next tab to see the video.
