Three Boons of a Politician
Animation Film Design | PGDPD
Sekhar Mukherjee
My film talks about a corrupt politician and the ways in which he manipulates and controls the common people. When I started thinking of concepts for this animation film, the first thing that I wanted to establish was a good story. I believed that if the story was good, then that alone would be able to take the whole project forward. The elections in my hometown inspired this story.

A politician tries to convince common people that whatever he does is for their own betterment. He makes many elaborate promises to the people, which he never fulfills. To the widow of an Indian soldier, he gifts consumer goods such as a pressure cooker and mixer grinder, pledging that his government wishes to give her everything she has lost. When questioned, the politician tries to silence the voice and when he fails to do that, he points a gun which sucks the person in. The politician keeps growing in size and finally towers over all the people.
Once I was confident about the filmís subject, I thought of its style and treatment. I decided to use simple line drawings, and concentrated more on the acting and movements. All the animation was done in 2D directly using a Cintiq tablet, which saved me a lot of time and paper.
The few animation projects I had done previously, had given me the confidence to go ahead with this project. Every stage of this film was fascinating for me, and I have tried to tell the story successfully via the medium of animation.
