Storytelling Through Animations 

What kind of animations do I enjoy creating?

I create stop motions, GIFs and frame by frame videos that are captivating, crisp, and connect with the right audience. Here are some samples of my past work exploring different styles. If you see something you like, or have any particular style in mind on which you would like to work with me, reach out to me at karishmadotia@gmail.com or fill in this form.

3) Wee Grow Concept Introduction 

Stop Motion Animation

This video explains the problems that Wee Grow is trying to solve. This video was a part of our live presentation of Wee grow at the Biodesign Challenge Summit 2018 held at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. Our team won the top eight position among 27 other universities from around the world.

Made under a sharp deadline of 3 days, using handmade illustrations, adobe photoshop, adobe premiere pro, lots of patience, and emotional support from friends and family! Had lots of fun writing the script, creating visuals, and editing to make the messaging direct and crisp. Special thanks to my team mate Jieun for her audio contribution to this.
