Mohammad Shihab Uddin, Director
Hello, This is Mohammad Shihab Uddin, An independent animation filmmaker, director in Bangladesh. I directed the short animated film ’Tomorrow` and created the `Shahana` series for UNFPA Bangladesh. I also worked in `Meena’ films for UNICEF as Production Manager and Creative Director.“Tomorrow” was a dream project that any director could dream of making. It was hugely challenging work from beginning to end. When the producers shared their thoughts about making a climate change film, I immediately jumped on board. “Tomorrow” was meant to be made in the 2D medium in an earlier stage. But, after reading the amazingly long script, I decided to make the film in 3D, keeping in mind the vast location and environmental work, and at the same time, I wanted to work with a new team and in a new medium which is 3D. I partnered with Cycore Studios, A leading 3D animation studio with many young talented artists from Bangladesh. We synced so well, and finally, we made the film.It was a long project. The script took one and a half years to develop, and we took two years to make the film and are still working on it to reach out to international audiences.It was a fantastic experience and journey making the film for Kazi Media, and feeling so great looking at its success here and abroad now.
