Professor of Chemistry
Contemporary approach
My film is about a Professor of Chemistry, who does not believe in love, and considers all the chaos it wreaks on the world to be only a ploy of nature, a giant conspiracy, to ensure that the organisms on the earth continue to reproduce. As the film progresses, we learn why he has begun to believe this.
To my great surprise, the tremendous force of “love”, my philosophical travels and aimless wanderings, the swelling clouds of endless thoughts and innumerable questions floating in my head, precipitated and every now and then lent themselves to the characters and situations in the film.
I wanted to study this subject, and to present it in its contemporary context. I wanted to make it funny and humorous, and yet convey my perspective on love, on the follies and foibles of people, and the comedy involved as people fall in love, fall out of it, or struggle to stay in it or out of it.
I wished to make it more universal. I wanted to include interviews with different types of characters and a TV journalist who runs about the streets, covering stories about the catastrophe being caused when people all over the world are breaking up.
I feel that working on an animation film is a task that involves a large amount of labour. Often, the path begins to seem too long, and too tiresome. Working on an animation film can be extremely rewarding in terms of satisfying one’s creative and artistic needs, in which lies the structuring, formatting, creation of stories and memorable characters. It also helps in the process of visualization, understanding one’s own philosophy and thoughts on life, and figuring out one’s point of view.
