SERU – Nepali Animation


Here is SERU an animation made in Nepal by Escape Animation which recently won the ONE FILM 3D Animation Challenge in December [2011]. SERU was announced as a joint winner alongside No Light. The winners were awarded a cash prize of Nrs 5 Lakh! That amount sounds stupendous! It took the team a good seven months to complete Seru and they had up to six artists working on the project. When asked regarding the challenges they faced during the journey the team pointed out loadshedding being the key problem with others just being a minor struggle which they viewed more as a learning experience. A belated Congrats to Escape Animation for the win! Watch the making of the animation – here
Seru is a short animation inspired from real characters, Pranaya – as a freak and Seru (dog) as Seru. It shows the amazing bond of friendship between a freak and Seru as it is in real life. The two of them set out for an adventure together and as it is Seru’s first time on the glider thing’s do not unravel well. However their friendship deepens even more in the end for the better.
PS. Those who watched it! Hope y’all enjoyed the viewing as the video has been took for by the makers of the animation.

  3. They have made everything so fantastic, but one thing that poped up in my head is that motion of text. The text motion did not match the motion the flying board. Why is that?
