Before we go ahead and revel in the glories of our students, let us take a look at what goes on behind the scene of making of an award winning masterpiece.
The 24FPS International Awards, 2019 started with us receiving the mails intimating us of the opening of the categories and the themes and guidelines of the various categories.
Teams as per the category of participation were being formed at the various centers.
After the formation and registration of the multiple teams came the most difficult phase,
The phase of planning, plotting with brainstorming and preparatory sessions.
The brainstorming sessions were quite intuitive with lots of ideas flowing in from different sources and the humongous task was to crunch them down in a presentable and compact model.
But with the help of mentors the students sailed through the phase quite sucessfuly.
The shooting and design phases follow shortly after the concepts have been locked down post approval from the mentors guiding the teams.
This can easily be considered the basic structuring of the whole process.
The designing is followed by the modeling, background preparations and scene setup.
Texturing and rigging start simultaneously with the basic structures in place.
Whereas the designs and layout are done for multimedia and 2D categories.
After animation the whole thing had started to come along, binding the models into place.
Lighting plays an important role to give it an enrich look and feel.
Meanwhile the festive season had kicked in with Durga Puja and Diwali.
While enjoying the festivities of the season rendering phase was on.
As soon as the rendering was completed, teams were very excited and ready for the most rewarding and final phase, i.e. compositing.
Compositing is no doubt the phase where every piece is glued together in a seamless output.
With rigorous efforts from students and mentors alike the whole look and feel of the hard work, toil and expectations came around quite well.
The whole 24FPS participation process is a learning experience.
Where students explore new possibilities in the way they work, expand the horizons of their understanding of the art and innovate on the fly as they apply the newly found treasure of knowledge.
At MAAC Chowringhee, Rashbehari and Ultadanga, we never fail to appreciate and celebrate such accomplishments and achievements made by our students.
Hearing the students talk about their 24FPS journey not only gives us a glimpse on what went on under the hood of the glamorous appreciation and the hard-work sleepless night behind the success stories.
But this effort indeed inspires the other students to take up the step and carry forward the legacy passed down to them.
We as mentors of the students can’t be any less proud and elated by the progress our students marking the milestones they achieve year after year.
It is a great feeling to welcome the New Year with our bags full of gifts and hearts filled with hopes and the urge to do better with every passing year.
