Maa Kali is a charcoal stop motion animation done as a part of a classroom project at my second year at National Institute of design.It is a fight dance sequence showing the Indian goddess Maa Kali. It is a metaphorical take on how the inner strength (goddess) within each women takes charge when in difficult situations. I tried to concentrate of showing the grace as well as impact of the actions and the strength of the female form through the movement.

Director Bio: Shweta Bendre
I am a 24 year old animator pursuing my masters in animation film design from the National Institute of design , India , in my final year.
I am passionate about 2D animation. I have tried my hand at experimental animation, charcoal animation, pixilation, clay animation, projection animation, 2D hand drawn and digital 2D as well as motion graphics. I believe in the fact that one have an open mindset and must keep watching new movies and learn from the same every day, I also believe that film making is a collaborative team effort, there is always something more to learn from the people you interact with wherever you go, whatever age you are.
