Animation Film - The Sparrow and The Crow
A short folktale animation film made from scratch to final execution while I was working with Trip Creative Services for their Youtube channel named Folktales of India.
Folktales have been an eternal part of every culture since ages. To showcase and popularize the rich variety of folktales from the subcontinent of India, TRIP Creative Services came up with in-house production called ‘Folktales of India’ in 2016. It is a Youtube channel where short folktales from India are uploaded.
This is a story of a hardworking sparrow who asks for help from a crow to grow crops in the field. The lazy crow promises to help but tries to cheat her along the way. This abridged folktale sends out a message of hard work and honesty against the backdrop of the vibrant state of Punjab. The Folktale illustration style has been inspired from the decorative Indian truck art found in Punjab.
Punjab is a state in northwest region of India and is one of the most prosperous states.
The name Punjab is made of two words Punj (Five) + Aab (Water) i.e. land of five rivers.
These five rivers of Punjab are Sutlej, Beas, Ravi, Chenab, and Jhelum. Only Sutlej, Ravi and Beas rivers flow in today’s Punjab.
The visual style of the folktale is an attempt to recreate the vibrant, colorful and thrilling charm of Punjab culture.
