Ek Cup Chaha (One Cup Tea)

This film is made as an academic project for course work submission. The story is of a real-life incident which occurred in the director’s life. The main character is Pappu and the second character is Pappa (his father). In the story, Pappa is suffering from a terminal illness and has to reveal this to his young school-going son. Very euphemistically, Pappa explains Pappu the meaning of life with metaphors from the tea making process. Eventually letting Pappu know that he has very little time left and Pappu will have to take off on his own now. The film is an experimental stop motion animation film which is made using fine tea powder on a backlit glass table. Both the voices of Pappu and Pappa are of the director, modulated using sound design software. The entire film is shot on a Nikon D750 DSLR with a 35mm lens and post processed using the Adobe Creative Suite.
