Ananthakrishnan T. U., pursuing an M. A. in Visual Media from Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Mysore campus, created an animation video based on the fight against Coronavirus. The characters of the animation video are the superhero Batman and the super-villain Joker. The animation was made under the banner of his own startup named Carmond Infinity.
“A hero can be anyone. Even someone doing something as simple as wearing a mask, washing their hands and keeping their distance," explained Ananthakrisnan. "Batman likewise joins the battle against COVID-19 admonishing- Wear your mask. Wash your hands. Consistently keep distance. Let’s break the chain."
The sound effects were provided by Kutty Om, who is famous in the Malayalam rap industry. The storyboard and animatics were done by Ananthu Ajith. The stylized characters were designed by Dillu A.R. and character animation was created by Pratheesh Joseph. Sasi Sankar made background images and music by fearzmusic. Ananthakrishnan did editing and effects. Neeraj Madhav, Blessy and many others have also shared their animation. As the first animation was popular, Ananthakrishnan and his team are in the works of the next animation which will be a minute and a half long.
