We've gotten wonderful reviews on our film and many, many requests for us to make it using Persian voices, for Persian-speakers around the world. Our main narrator will be SHOKOUH REZAIE, a famous singer/radio speaker. Ojan Missaghi of Ojan Productions will be casting and recording the voices and doing the basic audio editing. We will use subtitles in places. The script has already been skillfully translated by Soheyl Missaghi and is now being reviewed--and we are almost ready to RECORD!

We wish to portray Abdu'l-Baha as an exemplary representative of the Persian culture and have His story shared with many around the world. 

Please help us realize our dream of producing the Persian version! 

Risks and challenges

While we have never created a film in another language, we are working with experts on translation, review, recording, and editing and are simply replacing narration and text with Persian-language elements.

This Kickstarter goal represents two-thirds of the funding required to do the audio recording and post-production work on the film.

We hope to finish the recording of voices in April and the editing by June. Other facets of post-production include adding subtitles to text and re-authoring the entire work. Thus, our goal for DVD replication is August.
