Oracle Giving supports production of more AniBooks

Dear Friends,

We are happy to announce that Oracle has extended its support for the production of AniBooks i.e. animated stories powered by Same Language Subtitling (SLS).

Last year with Oracle’s support, we produced the following 5 AniBooks in English and Hindi: 

  1. A Cloud of Trash
  2. The Monk's New Shawl
  3. Pishi Caught in a Storm
  4. Rain Rain
  5. Did and the Colorful Treasure

Watch all five English AniBooks here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5-Zg1SrGII&list=PLPDzF0B97OtFboNoA4HxKsv0G5n6MXtHf

Watch them in Hindi here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7141x157Uw&list=PL_YQntlygLzYdYzXdx8lOy1Ljff7qwgRz

We have partnered with BookBox, a social enterprise born out of PlanetRead’s SLS innovation. BookBox has been creating AniBooks with SLS and is using its YouTube channel to promote reading. All AniBooks are all available free on BookBox’s YouTube channel, which has over 100 million views and more than 500K subscribers.

AniBooks are platform agnostic and available in the form of CDs, DVDs, internet downloads, mobile Apps and videos that can be played on TVs too. Usually produced in English the first time, they can be easily converted into any language. They currently available in a mix of over 45 languages (15+ Indian and 30+ international).

Currently, we are in the process of identifying the stories that we will be taking up for this project. The next phase will involve the main production stage i.e. artwork creation, animation, music composition, narration and addition of SLS. The final phase of the project will be to make all AniBooks available on YouTube and distribute them via other educational programs run by other ed-tech companies.
