Animation film on Sankardev next year
The first Assamese animation feature film based on 15th century Vaishnavite saint Sankardev will soon roll into production. The movie will see an early release in 2013 probably before Bihu. 'Sarbagunakara Srimanta Sankaradeva' will be the first Assamese animation feature film to be based on the life and times of the great Assamese icon and his contribution to society as a whole. The film will be scripted and directed by national award-winning director Manju Borah. Sanjiv Narain will produce the ambitious project.
The first animation feature film from the northeast will be technically steered by Kolkata-based Kaleidoscope Entertainment, which will be responsible for the characters design, layout, illustration and other vital aspects required in the production of an animation film.
The film will be released in Assamese, Bengali, Hindi and English and the dubbing for the film will commence soon. " There could not be a better subject than our own Sankaradeva. We roped in prominent experts for an accurate approach and to avoid any controversies," said Manju Borah. The director added that the film will be 90 minutes long and the venture would regenerate the ideals, philosophies and teachings of the saint to the new generation.
The music, which be composed under the tutelage of Tarali Sharma, will focus on traditional Sattriya music. "I will try to infuse Sattriya music based on his creation and will include Borgeet, Nator Geet, Ankiya Naat, Raag and other Sattriya flavours," said Sharma.
