Myth - Bags & Clutches

Myth are makers of some fine bags and clutches from Karachi, Pakistan. This is by far the most comprehensive and detailed work i've had the pleasure of producing. The film consisted of two separate shoots. The first shoot was the actual film. The second shoot was the film within the film. The first shoot consisted of over 350 shots taken at 12 frames per second. These shots were then printed onto paper and then cut maintaining a 16:9 ratio. The second shoot consisted of over 530 shots once again taken at 12 frames per second. These shots were then taken into Photoshop where each picture was individually edited, leaving only the bag in color and the rest of the frame in black and white. After an extensive editing process, these shots were then taken into After Effects where each shot was individually keyframed to match the exact position of the previous picture. After adding a slight vignette the film was ready to be rendered. Yes, it was worth it.

Foodpanda: What are people eating in Pakistan?

This was a 15 hour shoot comprising of about 700 shots taken from a Canon 60D with a 24-70mm lens. The camera was hooked onto the computer using Dragonframe. I would like to thank my family and friends for eating all the food after the shoot. I would also like to thank Saman Safdar Munshi for being kind enough to be the actor for this film. Thank you Jaffer Zaidi for lending me your tripod and Lens. A special note of gratitude goes out to Mattia Cellotto for being the amazing sound designer that he is.

 

The Wanderer

"But my dear, not all who wander are lost". I am inspired by Ryan Boyle's style of illustration & animation, and Nick Campbell's tutorials at Greyscale Gorilla. Thank you, both of you - I have a long way to go as far as animation is concerned, but i know i have started walking the path.

Soundtrack by Marble Sounds - A new breeze
