Shravan Regret Iyer, a 21 year old student pursuing journalism in Bangalore has created a stop motion documentary film and made his way to the India Book of Records for his film with most photographs. He along with Anoop B.S., Raisin George, Chancan Singh and Vinay S have created the short film with 4500 photographs.
Shravan says, they shot for over 14 hours. They have taken 5000 pictures totally and about 4500 of them were made into a sequence. He has proved that the filmmaking is all about telling a story with tools that can be used in daily life.
The recent film of Shravan is Crow With a Broken Wing (Rekke Murida Hakki Nanu) which is the story of an injured crow that lives in Bangalore. We all have heard stories on the smartness of crows and this crow is a living example, says the filmmaker.
You might feel what is this doing in a technology related site? There is something interesting for you. The photographs used in this stop motion film were all taken using the Nokia N8 smartphone's camera.
Shravan states that he makes films only with this digital camera or mobile camera. He has made five documentaries so far each of five minutes duration. He adds that he wanted to use minimalist equipment and make the sequence look professional.
