Gogimation - Rock

Historical. Some of the awesomest band members came to my Gogimation studio to talk sound and music and the System that will be. It felt like a comfortable chunk of the Rock Jam from last night had come, which was pretty damn rocking by the way.

Gogi Studios - Studio Space Development - Red Carpet Theater

The set up of the dailies room is what I have been up to for the past while. The actual name for this working space is still undecided. Some ideas are: Red Room, Red Carpet, Red Alert. The concept of this space is that, since we are creating cartoons for film (cinema), it should feel like the artists are sitting in a cinema as they're making them.

Nothing is instant. So even though the idea was decided, everything has taken a long long time to materialize. Here's a fast forward through the process so far...

... if only the actual process had been this quick. Just a few more phases left now; the box panels need to be painted, I'm considering one more coat for the walls (depending on many factors), one more coat for the golden beading (depending on many factors), the cables need to be neatened up and put into the system cabinet, the main door needs sound proofing, the back walls need picture frames for our posters and last but definitely not the least - a neon Gogi Studios sign on the large wall facing the studio entrance. Phew! (And 'yawn' for 99% of everyone reading this)

Gogi Banner - Books and Bags Distribution

Painted (digital) a large sized banner for an event (in conjuncture with the Ministry of Environment) in which we gave schoolbags, stationery and our books to IDP schoolchildren, Girl Guides and Boy Scouts for free.

The banner. The Urdu on top is translated in English at the bottom.

Here's the original sketch

If you've been to the National Convention Center, you'll know how large this banner is.

The place was packed.

Here's a shot of some of the boys checking out the goodies we put in the bags on their way back to their buses.

PTC - 11 second test

A small test to show PTC for their upcoming internally run channel. They wanted to see something with extremely minimal animation - so this is purposely lip sync only. They want our studio to handle content for the entire channel and create 1 hour of material per week.

I took the sound clip from a past 11 second club post. It's a clip from the movie, 'My Man Godfrey' (1936).

Books - In Distribution

We've been producing quite a lot of books lately. These ones are out ready to be distributed...
