Wha? Can it be?


As of today, I have animated every scene in Sita Sings the Blues. That’s 80 minutes.

The film is by no means finished. My sound designer, Greg Sextro, only begins adding effects early October, and it’s not clear how much time he’ll need. I still have to make end credits, add title text, and fuss around with what I’ve already done, changing colors here and nose-ring orientations there. But as of this morning, every scene has an image.

  1. Nina,

    Congratulations. I’ve been following your work silently for the last 2 years. Moreover, I have shown your work in progress reports to my students at the High School of Art and Design in Manhattan. They’ll be pumped. Congrats Again!!!!

  2. Great, speedy, beautiful, funny work.
    I don’t know what hygge is, but if it’s Urdu for single-malt scotch, then by all means break it out!

  3. Nina, your film is going to be awesome! I viewed all the clips and loved every second of it. I can’t wait to see the finished work.
