PATCH PILLOWS

A CGI Pre-School animated TV series call, PATCH PILLOWS, created and directed by Mohan Subramaniam in collaboration with Agogo Entertainment (HK) and Global Digital Creation (China).

Patch Pillows is an utterly delightful and charming series for very young children, about a group of patchwork pillows and their many friends. Living in their colourful home of Patch Valley, they spend their days searching for adventure and having fun. Written with John Gatehouse, the series won MIP Junior’s Kids’ Jury Award in the preschool category in Cannes and distributed worldwide by Cyber Groups Studio in France.

Come Back, Sun!

It is late afternoon, and the Pillows are having fun roller-skating around the Town Centre. “The sun’s going down and it will soon be dark” chuckles Mr Fern, looking at the sun slowly disappearing over the horizon. But the children want to carry on playing .

“I know!” says Penny, having one of her mad creative ideas. “If we follow the sun wherever it goes, it will stay light, and then we can carry on playing!”

   

Helpful Sunny

Penny and Annie are playing frisbee in the Town Centre, when Penny throws the ball a little too hard and it bounces across the street with Annie chasing after it. But Sunny sees Lenny approaching, and pulls her back again to safety! Annie gives Sunny her favourite frisbee as a reward! Sunny gets excited.

“I didn’t know that you got a reward for helping others! Maybe I should try and be helpful again?!” thinks Sunny.

   

Catch A Falling Star…

Night in Patch Valley, and Mr Fern is giving the little Pillows a special treat. He is allowing them look through his powerful telescope at the Moon and the twinkling stars in the sky. “Oh, they’re beautiful!” gasps a delighted Penny, as she sees the stars high above them.

Suddenly, Sunny gives an excited cry. In the sky is a streak of yellow light, falling towards the earth. “That’s a shooting star,” chuckles Mr Fern. The Pillows are disappointed – they would have loved a star to fall down from the sky!

   

“I’m Flying! I’m Flying!”

The Pillows are lazing on the ground in sunny Patch Park, watching two pretty patch butterflies flit-flit-flittering in the air above them. “Gosh, I wish I could fly!” sighs Sunny, dreamily.

“It would be awesome!” – You need wings to fly, and little Pillows don’t possess any. “No,” agrees the always creative and giggling Penny, dashing off towards the Town Centre. “But we can always build some!”

 

Short Films and TV series

   

Bark At The Moon
Masks are prevalent in modern society both literally and metaphorically. In my film I have attempted to create a surrealistic introduction to Masks from the primitive to the modern. I have incorporated elements which are abstract, perhaps even bizarre, yet stimulating. My work, I hope, will capture the essence of the surrealist masters I admire.

Peep Show
The concept is based on the theme of ‘Point of View’.  We are constantly making judgement in our daily life. In today’s world there are many mislaid point of view like in religions, fashion, art, poverty and politics. The objective of my film is to establish the oneness in all of us. We should treat everyone equal. Always bearing in mind that we are all also ‘judged’ at all time.

The Slayer
This is an experimental short film. I had an optical camera at my disposal and lots of blue pencils. Inspired on a fantasy comic book story I was reading at that time, I started sketching various frames using a blue colour pencils.I then shot each frame with various dissolves using the optical camera. With no idea what the final the result will be, I worked on this project for three weeks. When I finally previewed the print, it was exhilarating.
