It’s been a year since Schirkoa‘s completion. And it’s been wonderful. The story of bagheads, the protagonist 197a’s own demons and Schirkoa – the city’s beautiful claustrophobia was a story worth telling. The film has done considerably well in it’s run at the festivals. It qualified for the Oscars by winning LA Shorts, won top honor at SIGGRAPH and staying pretty strong by getting screened in some of the most prestigious film festivals. These are all horribly scary things for an anti-social person sitting behind a computer whole day consuming cup noodles, video games and internet junk.

Before it’s eventual online release it will have a run at decent number of TV Channels and VOD Platforms across the globe, thanks to New Europe Film Sales Distribution.
Ishan Animation Studio will now create more such films. Hopefully at a quicker pace. At the moment, it’s taking a break from narratives. It is going to deliver a couple a Music Videos before delving deep into the next film.
Welcome, to Ishan Animation.
It’s a pleasure to announce that Schirkoa will be distributed all across the world through New Europe Film Sales, Poland. This means over the coming months you might be able to watch Schirkoa on various TV channels and platforms apart from film festivals.
To start things off, those in Spain can catch Schirkoa ‘tonight’ on various Canal + Channels.
Here is the talk I gave at the TEDx event at BITS Pilani. It revolves around the story of Mr 197a – the protagnist of Schirkoa and his relationship with me.

Have been busy with my upcoming short film. I am planning a trailer for January 2013 and a Summer release later (Hopefully). For now I am going to take a small break from this short. A fresh pair of eyes always helps I suppose.
