Studio Eeksaurus - Payback

Okay I am making up for lost time by putting up all the work I am allowed to show now.
This is an ad for Payback done some time ago, animated mostly in Flash. Each person in the 2D team worked on almost every shot since there are so many characters!

Granny Dance Off

Here's something from Studio Eeksaurus. It's for Jumpin, a mango drink and this is for their Nani VS Nani dance off. It's a dance off between two grannies and viewers are supposed to vote on who should continue into the next round.
This project was at first mostly something the studio interns worked on(dance moves, storyboard, character design, animation etc), but the 2D team jumped in later(some of the animation, colour, look and feel, clean up, colour, compositing etc).
I animated the curtain in the intro, Shanti tucking in her sari pallu in Shot 03, Julie tossing the thermometer in her mouth and the side to side neck moves in shot 12 and the end tag , and Julie mocking Shanti with the whole wave on the nose thing.
The song is a remix of an old  1960 Bollywood classic song  "Nani teri morni ko mor le gaye",
Translation : Granny, peacocks took your peahen(er sidenote.. that's what you call the female, right?) away. 

Ok, that sounds weird when translated into English :)
