Arena Animation (Jayanagar, Bangalore studio) has always tried to do some thing new and different with their short films and this time they have come up with “The Magic Pot” which is again an experimental short film.
The film is all about the magic pot who shows you that sometimes sharing what ever you have with needy can also satisfy your cheerful life. Here magic pot shows you that how a king satisfied his hungry villagers after learning how much painful it is to see his own people suffer from his selfish acts.
The inspiration behind the film is nowadays people don’t bother about the things going around them; they are busy with their own life, in this movie it is shown that we have to share what we have with the people who don’t have their daily needs and living their life with agony. This entire concept is shown in 3 mins. The movie is made in English and will be released in other languages like Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and Hindi later in time. The medium of animation used in this film is cut out animation.
