Finding Blacksheep

poster design by Nargis Sheikh

The Blacksheep is about homecoming. Anmol Dharmadhikari has adapted a story into a wonderful shortfilm about homecoming, acceptance, acclimatization and departure. It is a story of claustrophobia both internally and externally.

The biggest challenge when Anmol sat down with me to make shot division was to create the visuals in such a way that the space doesn't seem redundant. 

The storyboard is a result of pre-visualization where the entire animation of the characters was performed by both of us in a room keeping in mind the location and consider the best possible angles to tell the story.  

Anmol was inspiring to work with since he listened to my suggestion an would drop it if it doesn't fit into his framework for the short film. He has indeed created a short film that I am proud to be a part of. Amey Ranadive has done a commendable effort in bringing the frames to life. The directors attention to details have brought out the life in the characters without which the skeleton called storyboard would just be a fancy item.

Sandhya, Mukta, Me, shantanu n Anmol

All credits to the cast for taking cinema to a different level and to the crew for giving 100%.
The film like any film made has its flaws but what is flawless . A diamond ?

  1. 'The Black Sheep' would not be possible to make if great people weren't be around! I am really fortunate to have such gems around!
