Sharing thoughts on the Animated Vachanamrut DVD Series, Shyam Vasani, Founder of Brain Arts Studio, said, “Being ardent follower of Swaminarayan it has always been my dream to dedicate something special to him. My guru Sadguru Dhyaniswami Hariswarupdasji inspired me to come up with this divine project. Vachanamrut has always been an important part of my life and for delivering good animated stuff I studied and understood various scriptures by many of our ancient saints.
As a director, I have grown with every project. Understanding the medium of animation deeper and going through the whole process of understanding the script and designing it for a different medium was very interesting for me. Developing a written mythological tale into an animated series was a very hard yet exciting journey.”
Vachanamrut is originally written by Saints, Gopalanand Swami, and Bhrahmanand Swami, Muktanand Swami, Nityanand Swami, Sukanand Swami and is a holy book of spiritual Satsang known as ‘Vachanamrut’. Selected scriptures from this holy book are taken and developed for using the animation medium.
The Voice over for this animated DVD series is given by Archan Trivedi, who is a singer, a theatre actor as well as a voice artist.
Highlighting on the voice over for Vachanamrut, Archan Trivedi, stated, “I read the script and understood the character as deeply as I could and tried to take the role of the character himself, and then recited the dialogue.”
The overall budget of this animated series is INR.13 Crore with each volume budgeted at INR.12 Lacs.
Brain Arts Studio has developed their personalized tools and software’s for animating Vachanamrut with use of the CGI software’s available in the Industry. Working on all the modules for Animating Vachanamrut was a task for the Brain Arts team with Clothing and Rendering being the major challenge.
