An Inverted Dream


An Inverted Dream from Alok N R on Vimeo.

An Inverted Dream is about a girl who wakes up in an upside down house. The film follows her through a surreal journey as she tries to figure out how and why she got there. Set to the song 'Wait for Me' by Moby , 'An Inverted Dream' was my final year animation project at MIT Institute of Design,Pune and was completed over a period of one and a half years.

'Lynch'ed

The Lynch movie



This is one of the more complete almost finished edits of the experimental film that I worked on with Ravi Popat.(We plan to have original scores composed for this some time in the way too distant future).I worked on this as an assistant director(which is another way of saying I co-conceived,co-wrote,co-edited,co-art directed,co-produced and co-directed the film with Popat).

Synopsis:It tells the tale of a psychologically disturbed girl and how an ad on a newspaper suddenly changes her routine.Thats a really sad way to put the premise of this story but it is a very subjective interpretation that we seek from the audience and I cant really say much about the film without giving anything away.So please watch it and share your views,comments and constructive criticism.

Live Action Film Debut -The Other Face

The Other Face



A film about a man and his obsession for a rubik's cube.The cube is symbolic of an obsession that slowly grows on a man and eventually reaches ominous levels,even dictating his actions.

A Pig Story - claymation film




It is a story about a girl who is day dreaming during her study-time. The dream begins to get real when a pig, a sort of apparition, confuses and distracts her from her activity.
This film was made during the experimental animation course conducted and guided by Sir. Vaibhav Kumaresh. Without him we would have never been motivated enough to make this film happen.

Here is the final finished version of the film with audio. The movie does have a lot of rough edges in it, but I guess I rather have it this way with the warts and blotches and all. Learnt a lot about the pains of 'completing' a work of animation. Realised how much of a movie is actually made in post production.Especially at the hands of the compositor !

Duration: 2 minutes 57 seconds

A Pig Story - claymation film



A Pig Story is a short made by Nikhita Prabhudesai, Vicky Punjabi and myself. It is a story about a girl who is day dreaming during her study-time. The dream begins to get real when a pig, a sort of apparition, confuses and distracts her from her activity.

This film was made during the experimental animation course conducted and guided by Sir. Vaibhav Kumaresh. Without him we would have never been motivated enough to make this film happen.

The sound is yet to be added, and I guess it'll take a while for that to happen. :P Nevertheless, Hope you enjoy it.

Duration: 2 minutes 57 seconds.

A Bouncy Affair



A curious sack and its encounter with a beach ball that wandered into its area.

Done as a part of a class assignment in my first Sem of Animation Design. I was to take the character of a sack and a prop (here a beach ball) and make a complete 2d short of 30 seconds. Took me about a month to complete.

Saving Trees Through Saving Paper

Save Paper Save Trees



This is a short animation clip I did in Flash CS4 as a part of my 3rd semester Design Process course at the MIT Institute of Design,addressing the issue of 'Necessity for Efficient Usage of Paper'.It was meant as a 1 and a half minute clip to be aired on TV aimed at a 15-30 year age group demographic.

The movie took me 10 days to make and was my first such attempt on Flash .There are quite a few short comings,especially with the sound(I narrated it myself you see) but I hope I have done a pretty decent job. Please drop your valuable comments and suggestions.
