About the project

Every summer, like the roses, childhood returns: Marty Rubin

Dhamachakdi is a 7-part animated series that brings back forgotten lessons, childhood pranks, and innocent moments that were presumed to be lost in time.

 

 

Narrated in Gujarati, the series follows an action thriller format packed with antics of young boys who keep playing pranks without a care of its consequence. The narrative oozes of a nostalgic regional flavour, showcasing life in an Indian village.

 

A little bit on the progress of the pilot

 

The first episode of Dhamachakdi is titled as Dhamko', with maximum creative work complete here is a short synopsis of the story:

Diwali vacations are on, and Kaitav and Gulu find themselves bored on a lazy weekday afternoon. The duo decide to fire up some crackers. One of the crackers, the ‘sutlibomb’, is the loudest of them all! And they want to make sure that the blast is special.

 

 

A bit about me 

  My name is Kaitav Patel and I'm currently studying Animation Film Design at National Institute of Design, in Ahmedabad. I come from the small-town of Valvada, which belongs to the district of Surat, Gujarat. I love storytelling and for me animation is the best medium to do that as it has endless possibilities.  

Understanding why the web-series is unique   Most incidents that the series convey come from real life experiences of the mischief caused by my friends, family members and myself. This is unique as it stems from a real Indian childhood, packed with flavours of regional animation. One can easily relate to the series being Indian by simply witnessing the organised chaos.  

How much of the film is complete?

Most of the pre-production part of the pilot episode is done. The final animation, colouring, music and the in-between work is yet to begin, as I will be in need of professional help for it.

More on showcasing real village life  

One of my intention for this series is to eventually make it available on regional television channels for an audience that would highly relate to it. With no supernatural element attached to it, the series aims to showcase innocent adventures with honest humour. Majority of India’s population lives or has lived in a village at some point of time. Village life being deeply rooted in culture and traditions has a story far different from the typical western animated series to tell. This makes it relevant for audiences all over the country.

Why do I want my film to be shown at Chitrakatha?

Chitrakatha is the meeting ground for the International and National animation industry!  It is held at the National Institute of Design, and showcasing this film there will give the series massive exposure. I have already been picked by Wishberry and NID to crowd fund for my project, now all I need is YOU to make sure that the best voices in the animation world get to see my work.  

Why crowdfunding?

As a student I have made few films, some good and some average, and then came a time when I thought that I should give my ideas justice. Dhamachakdi was the one I felt deserved all the attention. Hence I chose crowdfunding, as an animation project needs a lot of time and more importantly money.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 30000 in Animation and Clean

Rs. 25000 in Music and Sound

Rs. 15000 in Compositing and Editingn

Rs. 12000 in Colouring

Rs. 10000 in Logistics

Rs. 2800 in Degree document charges


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

This project is slightly different from other material showcased on television, here there is no hero who comes in to save the world. My stories are about real moments, people and emotions.

Why should you believe me and why should you fund this project?

I believe there are so many honest stories that are untold. Also, animation in this country needs a serious boost. And, what better way to begin than with a story that reminds us of our childhood! Wishberry and NID have shown their support by picking me, now it's your turn to do so!

Chitrakatha, what's that all about ?

Wishberry and National Institute of Design (NID) have come forward with this initiative — Script 2 Screen. It encourages animation in the country by making sure students can screen their films at Chitrakatha, a biennial, international festival where the best of the Industry come forward to celebrate and notice talent. We entered the competition and were selected to raise funds via crowdfunding. Through this we will be able to finish our student films and showcase them at Chitrakatha. This is a huge platform for college students as well as those who’ve just finished college! We will be able to show our work to experts and gain so much exposure!

What are the future plans of this project?

If things go well, I will continue to make this series with new interesting episodes and will approach this project much more professionally.

Animation and India. Thoughts?

Animation in India is still at an infant stage, there is barely any original content made in the country. People believe that animation is for kids, and most of the work related to animation is outsourced. So it is high time we produce some good animation in India.
