Short Film using stop motion animation
Vivekananda College- Short Film using stop motion animation
The students guided by the Can Communicate team came up with a concept for an experimental video using paper cut-outs and stop motion animation technique. Being students of Mass Media, they chose a topic of relevance – Gender Stereotypes in Print Media, highlighting the way women and girls are often projected in the media. Some of the aspect discussed includean obsession with beauty and slimness, macho portrayal of men and “pink and pretty” portrayal of women etc.Somewhere the stories of real women, real issues affecting men and women are lost and the film calls for more responsible reporting by the media.
Creative process and production:
The students were enthusiastic and began collecting images, headlines and alphabets to make key words and present their concepts. They were guided by the Can Communicate team which also edited the film using stop motion technique to depict the message in a quirky manner. Collating images was time-consuming and quite messy and it was done over a period of ‘2 days using 50 old magazines.
Key question:“Where are the stories of real women?”
