An Introduction to the Baha’i Faith by Rainn Wilson – A New Animation!

I’m super excited to let everyone know about a new animation called An Introduction to the Baha’i Faith by Rainn Wilson that Baha’i Blog had the pleasure of working on with our dear friends at BahaiTeachings.org, SwissVBS, and of course, actor Rainn Wilson.

When Rainn first called to chat about the idea of making an animated introduction to the Baha’i Faith, I was excited because of what was learned when Baha’i Blog made this short video about the Baha’i Faith, and because sadly, there’s still not that much out there when it comes to introductory Baha’i materials online. Seeing as how 57 percent of the world are actively online these days, there’s definitely a need for videos like this.

Over the last year or so while working on this project, I’ve had a number of conversations with friends about what goes into making an animation about the Baha’i Faith. Here at Baha’i Blog we’re passionate about the creation of Baha’i-inspired content and exploring the processes involved, so I thought perhaps it would be a good opportunity to share a little bit about some of the considerations made, and the questions we asked ourselves, such as where to find the resources, what animation style we should use, how to write the script. After all, the goal was to create an animation that introduces the Baha’i Faith to a wide audience. Continue reading
