A standing ovation goes to off to KIMFF, and Himal Association for putting on such an event year after year to encourage people to think about issues that generally they are not interested in. Climate Change has been a hot burning issue in the recent years. Despite this fact it’s only been used in the political debts and discussions. Today people living on this planet have to be aware about this situation and change.
Involving younger generations to advocate and to educate their fellow beings is what the need of the hour is. Events like KIMFF is for sure the stepping platform for young and talented creative people.

Making of Small Step
Today we are going to talk about how we managed to come up with the complete short “Small Step” . Dont expect this is gonna be grand one ( as simple as possible hehe )Well it is about pollution and a simple solution.
The concept was influenced from the reality picture of a present Kathmandu city. Every day the garbage and waste products gets dumped into the river running through valley. The river now runs real slow and black with odder. So we thought we can give message to people out there and especially to the children as they are the ones who would be the leaders one day. Making an exact mirror about the subject wouldn’t be exciting. So we came up with the characters that twined the whole subject into fantasy one which the children love. The garbage monster and the boy.
The background images were created from the reference photograph of houses in Kathmandu.
Well after the concept was clear enough, we started story boarding. Actually it was supposed short of about 5-6 minutes. We had the shorts where the big war takes place between the monster and the army, people running all over the place, other extra shots and all. Later on we eliminated those scene coz we didn’t want the story line to go on and on which would be boring and very lengthy. So we put only the beautiful and clear shots.
For animation part we were thinking about doin it in 3d. We didn’t have a rigger and it would take a lot of time to model different set for different shots. Later on we started animating in flash. And that took pretty long time to get done with the animation. We tried to merge the anime style with the flexible cell style though it still looks stiff all over the places haha. we worked on and off for about 5 months and there it is with final rendered form.
Editing and sound
It was quick process for the final compile part. We worked for few days trying to create sounds. We recorded the footsteps, voice, monster’s sound, birds yap and all the effects. And for the music part we used a traditional soundtrack ( local artist) .
And once again the final short.
