Concept Name: SCHIRKOA

SCHIRKOA is the story (an IP maybe) I will be trying to develop in coming years.
At the moment I am aiming at an animated Short Film. Followed by a graphic novel. And then let’s see what else can come out. It’s set in a dystopian city, involves bagheads and some other ‘creatures’

Ishan (Writing/Directing/CGI/Graphic Novel/everything else)
Start Date : Mid 2010. But it’s been mostly off until Summer 2012.
Estimated Completion Date : February 2014 (Short Film)
What went right this week: Basically, things got moving! Yiming (my rigger, animator friend) has come on board. He will be working from Singapore. The site is finally up. It’s still pretty empty, but hopefully I will be more consistent with updates. Talked to a music composer and the conversation proved fruitful.
What has gone wrong so far: I was chasing wrong rendering style. And I never locked the story down. These 2 mistakes left the film in a limbo. I am exploring some faster and simpler rendering styles and aiming to lock the story pretty soon.
Show & Tell :
A couple of drawings from my old storyboard. None of these sequences or characters are in the film any more, but these have provided strong foundation to the style of my upcoming graphic novel.
