Animation film on Mahabharata being made in California

MUMBAI: Seems like the art of animation is set to unite people across seven seas by letting know each other of the other?s religion and culture. Otherwise why would The Mahabharata be made in a studio in California.

The great Indian epic is all set to be made into a Hollywood animation film titled 18 Days: The Mahabharata.

Says 50-year old maker and a Scottish comic books writer Grant Morrison, "This new version of the Mahabharata is like a psychedelic ?The Lord of the Rings? with made with ?Star Wars? technology. This film is not a strictly accurate historical portrayal of events but a poetic, fantastic interpretation of the original text. Krishna stops time to deliver the terrible wisdom of the Gita? with super real battle scenes, ?Saving Private Ryan? style. I think this type of ‘holographic‘ structure allows us to plug new stories into the ongoing 18 Days War. I‘m setting the date for this version somewhere around 10, 000 BC. Elephants in this proposed film wear gas masks.?

18 Days would be available in full Hi-Definition and in a variety of formats: 2 x 90 minute TV movies, 6 x 30 episodes, extended 200 minute DVD release and as 18 x 10 minute web episodes. It will be supported by on-line and console gaming products, mobile content and other L&M licenses.

A joint venture of Perspective Studios and Liquid Comics, Perspective Studios, with Steven Lehrhoff as CEO claims to be a leading performance capture and character animation studio based in Santa Monica (California, USA).

Liquid Comics, with Sharad Devarajan as the CEO, claims to be an entertainment company focused on creating original stories and modern myths for worldwide audiences.
