Hello everyone! A Very Happy New Year, 2024! 

In this blog, we will discuss the most important event of 24FPS at MAAC Kolkata and share some happy news with you. We all have heard about the most popular and cherished event, the 24FPS. 

Let us take a brief look at what the annual event of 24FPS entails.

24FPS Award

24FPS is essential as it has a significant impact on how the viewer perceives the film, offering an individual visual rhythm and the cinematic beauty that we are aware of. 

But what is 24FPS?

FPS is the abbreviation of frames per second. It is the unit by which the frame rates are measured. Number of still images shuffled through in one second creating an illusion of the motion is called FPS. Smoother motion is perceived when the frequency of the frame rate is higher. 

MAAC 24 FPS is an open platform where studios, students and professionals across the web get to showcase their talents. It is the platform where each work of the participants stands out from one another demonstrating their individual skill sets.

24 FPS is a unique forum in which film making is achieved by using live-action, 3D animation, and visual effects (VFX). It is the most prestigious international Award Ceremony for the animation and visual effects (VFX) sect throughout the Indian subcontinent and beyond.

The main objective of the 24 FPS event lies in encouraging and inspiring the students to experience an ambience of making a film wherein they get to perform like professionals. This involves conducting all the necessary groundwork, enumerating their creative ideas to construct and achieve a piece that is unique; and last but not the least, working under immense pressure to meet the deadlines. 

To sum up, during MAAC 24FPS is the time when our mentors provide the students with the feeling of working in a professional environment— production-house-like surroundings, which enables them to perform in a production house in reality.

The jury members constitute a group of accomplished industry professionals who assess and evaluate the compositions of the students and determine their best works.         

The grand event of 24FPS is organized by MAAC in affiliation with the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC).

There are various categories in which every center can contribute with active participation. The three primary categories of MAAC 24FPS are as follows:

  • Script to Screen: It is an animation short -film in which participants create the whole story and design anime characters, in a similar way a movie is crafted. The participating team has to select the theme provided by the governing body, work on it using their creative charisma.

In this event 24FPS students along with their mentors start planning on how they would execute the project from the very first day of receiving the project challenge. A team of 15 members is selected at each center.  These 6 months appear to be very crucial and challenging for the participating teams. Students with dedication and commitment perform throughout the day and night in order to achieve the given deadlines. Mentors channelize their projects and coordinate with their respective teams accordingly. After numerous sleepless nights of rigorous hard work students submit their final project on time.
