About

Short Summary

We are making a short animated film to demonstrate the ill effects of war. The central point of this movie is a seven year old child who survived when the village was destroyed in war. The child is all alone helplessly looking for food and shelter. He tries to recollect the beautiful scenery, the village before the war and tears roll down his cheeks by remembering the old memories that came to the mind of the child. This dates back to, World War II, where, more than 50 million people lost their lives. Out of this number, 24 million were soldiers and 26 million were civilians. The tragic reason behind the World War II was in establishing supremacy of power of one country over another.

This quote by John Steinbeck says it all about war –

“All wars are a symptom of man's failure as a thinking animal.”

Innocent lives were lost due to the inhumane acts of mankind during the war. The number of wars fought in the modern world is on the rise and it is known that war is a destructive force that causes havoc and demolition. Recent instances include the war between Russia and Ukraine, operations in Iraq and many others. Though this short animated movie, we are interested to spread the message that the only outcome of war is destruction caused to life and society.

Right now we are working on the production of this short film after work hours on weekdays and on weekends. It will be exciting, but the pace of completion is extremely SLOW. In order to complete this project, we request the Kickstarter Community to help us with funding for the project. By this we will be able to complete our project and spread the message to the society “NOT TO WAGE WARS

What We Need & What You Get

Estimated Cost Distribution
Estimated Cost Distribution

Expenses required are for Pre-Production, Production and Post-Production cost. There will also be expenses like payment to render farms for renders of the movie. Voice recording, background score cost will also be covered in the above cost. We will also need to have crowd simulation in the movie for war scenes which is quite expensive. Length of the movie will be around 9-10 minutes. The main character is the boy who will be seen in the trailer. Other characters will include his parent and villagers.

The Impact

We all live in the same world, so we are all directly or indirectly involved in the society and is our moral responsibility to make sure that WARS come to an END and also educate the generations the cause and effect of the war.

For example, if a war breaks out in any of gulf country, it impacts the price of crude oils. This will ultimately result in an increase in prices of gas across the world. War also impacts the economy of nations.

Other Ways You Can Help

We see Kickstarter primarily as a way to reach out to our future viewers and build up communication with the public and professional community. We are planning to make more movies later on, so this communication is vital for us. We also like the idea of being supported by people eager to spread the message about upholding the sanctity of humanity and not resorting to any kind of violence including war.

Sometimes, you just can't contribute! But that doesn't mean you can't help: Help us get the word out and make some noise about our campaign. And that's all there is to it.

Risks and challenges

We have prepared a strict production schedule to meet the deadline, which we will try to meet by all means, but the production of an animated movie is a challenging process. Some changes, delays or even unexpected circumstances may happen, which would potentially lead to increase in production period. But we will make the production process as transparent as possible for backers to make sure you not only learn a lot about the process of production of animated movies, but also would be up to date on any delays or changes.
