Little Krishna – The Darling Of Vrindavan 2013 HD
Little Krishna is a 3D computer-animated series which is a co-creation between BIG Animation and India Heritage Foundation (promoted by ISKCON Bangalore). The series started showing on Indian television on Nickelodeon from 11 May 2009.
It depicts the childhood pastimes of Lord Sri Krishna, The Supreme Personality of Godhead. The stories revolve around Little Krishna, the land of Vrindavan and the life of villagers there. Little Krishna is a lovable and mischievous character who enjoys helping his friends and villagers.
There are currently 13, 23-minute episodes in the series. Using the traditional tales of Krishna’s childhood adventures as a foundation, the tonality of the stories is both light-hearted and, at times, serious.
Based on the chronicles of the most beloved prankster Little Krishna, the series is an outcome of seven years of research with two and half years of production work by BIG Animation. Scripted by Emmy Award winner Jeffrey Scott and researched by India Heritage Foundation which was based on the teachings of HDG A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the series has a visual style, which combines Indian design motifs with classical Western styles. The design team at BIG Animation has researched every style aspect of the land of ‘Vraj’, where these stories took place 5000 years ago. The backgrounds, art direction, color keys and all other elements of detailing were thoroughly researched upon, unearthing every possible reference and finally deciding on the designs that will suit the contemporary formats. The series has been primarily created in English, but it has also been dubbed in several other Indian languages, including Hindi. Though it is primarily targeted at the age group of 7–9 years and for the global market at that, on the whole the series is a family entertainer. Under the able leadership of Prafull Gade (Associate Producer), who diligently married economics with creativity and Ravi Mahapatro (Line Producer) who was responsible for managing the day-to-day operations. A team of 280 artists have worked on this project which is directed by the tag team of Vincent Edwards who has earlier worked on Spider Man: TV Series and R. Balasubramaniam, while the music has been rendered by Varaprasad. The series explores a lot of very interesting stories beyond the popularly known ones from the life of Krishna, ones that have never before been presented to the audience, thus ensuring a truly superior and exclusive content.
