About the project

I am Kanishk Seth, a debutant music producer. I was all of 14 when I got my hands on professional sound software. Since then, there has been no looking back. My mother Kavita Seth has provided me full support and guidance in my journey so far. She is also a Bollywood playback and Sufi singer who’s given popular songs like ‘Ektara’ and ‘Tumhi Ho Bandhu’ to her fans.

I released my debut album, 

‘Trance with Khusrow ‘, in October 2014. It is unique album that marries two very mystical forms of music, Trance and Sufi. There are eight songs and two instrumentals in the album. Great Sufi Saint Hazrat Amir Khusrow gave the world some priceless poetry and we consider ourselves very lucky to have worked with this 800-year old work of art. Each song of the album has a unique rendition with beautiful Indian instruments like the Israj and Flute adding the divine feel. While some songs are based heavily on electronic sounds, others have a subtle touch of the same. The Sufi vocals given by Kavita Seth lend the fusion a perfect feel.

What am I crowdfunding for? 

One of the songs in the album is called 'Jab Yar Dekha' and we want to release a music video for this song. We want to present this song through an animated story depicting the beauty of inner self.

Concept of 'Jab Yar Dekha' and its animated music video

Jab Yaar Dekha is a dreamy song that entails melodious sounds with lyrics for your heart. It captures the essence of a truly beautiful relationship between two lovers and the divinity that flows through it. But with animation, we want to present a unique story of an object that falls from space on Earth and falls in love with his own reflection.

On the path that the object takes, it notices a beautiful fellow companion that changes its appearance throughout his journey to explore this beautiful planet it accidentally landed into. Crossing through picturesque mountains, rivers, forest, his happiness knows no bounds on seeing a beautiful companion.

The object is actually a mirror (metaphorical use of the mirror) that is a reflection his inner beauty, the beauty of his soul. The concept that will magically be translated through animation, certainly compliments the soulful nature of the song coupled with the love that flows through.

Why crowdfunding?

I am a young music producer taking my first step in the professional world. With a music video of this nature, I intend to share my music with all you people from the world over. Your financial backing and moral support would give my dreams a concrete musical and visual shape. I hope you are with me and believe me, your contribution of any amount will be a great motivator for me.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 192500 in Concept, Design, Storyboarding and Animatics

Rs. 302500 in Art & Backgrounds

Rs. 55000 in Post Production


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

Animation is a long and expensive process. It involves a plethora of steps, for instance drawing detailed characters, defining their movement, creating backgrounds, textures, rendering each frame and much more. Taking note of the complex nature of the art, salaries of animators, director, other members of the team along with the skyrocketing production cost, creating an animated video is certainly a mammoth task. This makes it extremely important for us to raise the exact amount to have the desired animated video.

What happens when I don't raise enough money?

Creating an animated music video for 'Jab Yaar Dekha' from 'Trance with Khusrow' is a dream in itself. I am hoping with your support I am able to fulfill my dream. However, if I am unable to reach the target amount, I would return the money received from the contributors. 

How am I going to prove that I won't just take all the money and run away?

At 18, I was able to release 'Trance with Khusrow' to the world along with my mom, Kavita Seth. As an artist, I am dedicated to my music and the love for the art. This project is a precious part in my musical journey and your support means heaps to me. So don't worry, your money is in safe hands.
