18 Days - A Sci-Fi Mahabharata Retelling

via io9.com
Given the nature of the medium and the kaleidoscopic possibilities of the original narrative, my intention is not to tell the story in strict chronological order (beginning with Shantanu and progressing through the various stories towards the war) instead I'd like to approach the text not in a linear fashion but as a 3-dimensional structure to which we can continually add new modular episodes which will eventually build up into an incredible mosaic of the War and the events surrounding it. In this way the story will grow in power and interconnectivity as we build it up piece by piece, episode by episode.

The animation does not look very polished. The man has good vision though. Lets hope that it turns out to be excellent.

On a side note, why can't our film makers adapt stories from epics? There are zillions of side stories worth retelling in the modern world. How far will our movie industries go by aping the west and displaying disgusting opulence never seen in real life.
