United Nations Development Programme - The Water Seekers

I had worked with film-maker Diya Banerjee, on one of her projects funded by the UNDP on ways to tackle water scarcity in rural areas by employing common sense methods rather than using elaborate technology.

The documentary, "The Water Seekers" is a very commendable effort by her with regards to enlightening people about the troubles faced by our farmers in securing their livelihood. I had the pleasure of animating two sequences for her documentary to illustrate the concepts of water saving techniques. Though simplistic science diagrams would have sufficed, I wanted to go one step ahead in livening up the scenarios using organic transitions between each new method of water conservation.

Working with Ms. Diya Banerjee was a great experience and I would like to wish her all the best with her future endeavours.
