Synopsis


What Is Your Brown Number? is an animated short film that I made for my graduation project at NID. The project was sponsored by Studio Eeksaurus, Mumbai, and my NID guide was Dhiman Sengupta. The project brief was to create an animated short film with a topic of social/environmental relevance, to be worked on by me from script to screen under Suresh Eriyat’s guidance. The topic chosen was “discrimination in India based on skin colour”. The film talks about how in India everyone wants to be light skinned, and how there is a sense of idealism and beauty associated with fair skin, whereas it is negativity and repulsion that is associated with dark skin.

Vinnie Ann Bose is a graduate student at the National Institute of Design (India) specialising in animation film design. Her graduation film What Is Your Brown Number? was sponsored by Studio Eeksaurus, a well-reputed production house in India and was executed under the guidance of the renowned animator/director Suresh Eriyat. In a country like India where there are multitude of cultures, languages and traditions mingling with each other, there is a peculiar story in every nook and corner waiting to be told. One such story is What Is Your Brown Number? She is a storyteller, striving to bring more such stories to life.
