A group of 43 enthusiastic students of Xplora Design Skool (XDS) got together from their different campuses across India & decided to express their feeling for our nation on this Independence Day. This has resulted into a remarkable achievement today - “Mission India” a timeless master piece of 2D Animation Film dedicated to our nation.
The Initiative: Xplora Design Skool wanted to contribute to the national development through a social awareness campaign called “Mission India”. They realized that the best way to do this would be to give an opportunity to their students to make an Animation Film on social cause. This marked the beginning of the first 2D Animation film dedicated to the nation on this Independence Day, and, the rest is history- students’ brain stormed, generated unique ideas, and gradually created a story. They completed the whole scripting with help from the Animation faculty experienced in such film making.
The Film : Mission India, a 7 minute 2D Animation film & 1 ½ minute Animation of National Anthem is an awakening call to today’s youth to fight against modern day evils i.e. corruption, terrorism, mediocrity, a call to lead our country on the road to progress and prosperity. Today everyone in our country gives their acquaintance as “I am a Hindu”, “I am a Muslim”, “I am a Sikh”, “I am a Christian”, “I am a Gujarati”, “I am a Maharastrian”, “I am a Punjabi”, “I am a Keralite” but it’s really sad that no one says with pride that “I am an Indian”. It’s time we get united and stand as one.
Purely a Students Film: The conceptualizing, scripting, sketching, story boarding, Art work, drawing, colour filling, shading, production, lip sync, editing of the film- all has been done purely through the TEAM work of young, energetic, creative and highly imaginative students of Xplora Design Skool. These students both boys and girls came together from different parts of our country (different XDS Campuses) - Coming from different States, Caste, Communities , Regions and walks of life, these students, who are Hindu, Muslim, Sikh and Christian are a true example of the spirit of unity in diversity of our Nation. They have come together to give a powerful message to the Youth of India by this Song and Animation – “Mission India”.
The Effort & Appreciation: These students had determined to work day & night to complete the project within the deadlines. They worked in two shifts from 9 am to 8 pm and then the other team from 8 pm to 6 am. Today we see that these students (who worked tirelessly 24X7) have bagged a great achievement in their career. Their efforts have made them more confident because their 1st 2D animation Film made on India, a result of their hard work and passion, is being screened, appreciated & applauded across the Nation over news channels, newspapers, prominent personalities, state leaders, colleges, schools, cinema halls, malls, etc.
The Film in just 20 days: The movie is produced by Xplora Design Skool and directed by Mr. Shreyansh Shah with XDS Students as the real Hero - because the whole Creation (Pre-Production, Production, Post production) is done by students in just 20 days, imagine, a 8 ½ minute animation done from a scratch in 20 days. All these became possible with the constant encouragement & motivation from their institute under the guidance of the XDS faculties.
This film is a part of Xplora Design Skool’s national internship program to give a feel of how students are required to work in the Industry - how real studios work. This internship forms a part of the newly launched education model SPLL (Studio based Production Level Learning), where students are given a group project to work with industry experts, mentoring them & there by giving the students the required skill & knowledge as desired by the industry.
“This is Just a Beginning… Yes Xplora Design Skool when asked about Mission India film proudly announced and Promised to its students that now onwards they will be producing such 2D & 3D movies every 3 months on a regular basis, with an objective that gradually all its students get a taste of Industry working style as well as become responsible citizens of our country.” – Monika Jain (Kota Xplora Student)
