Several years ago, I worked on creating character designs based on the real life family members in this documentary. In fact, if you go back to an earlier posting of this blog, you will see some of those early designs.
I came up with the designs with the understanding that I would create the storyboards, the animatic and eventually the final animation in the film. I could make my own documentary of this process, but it wouldn't be as enjoyable as the "Meet the Patels" documentary has finally become.
After 6 years of hard work and dedication, Ravi and Geeta have finally finished their epic about dating in the modern world from a traditional India perspective. Its a very fun and often touching look at the struggles of Ravi trying to find his sole mate, while his sister Geeta documents the process.
They have a Kickstarter campaign to get their film into the theaters nationwide, but they need your help asap. You can learn more by click on the photo of Ravi below!
We have 30 days to put Meet the Patels into theaters. Um, help?
Looks like Geeta and Ravi's film will finally get on the big screen and perhaps even at a theater near you! The Kickstarter funding was a success and if you ever get a chance to see it, here's the latest trailer!
UPDATE: You will get a chance to see the film in September which is not to be missed and worth the price of admission! If you have seen it, please let us know what you thought of it.
