About Us

Dancing Atoms’s team includes over 20 amazing individuals that share a common vision. We work out of Los Angeles, London, Mumbai, Kuala Lumpur, and many other locations around the world.

Dancing Atoms was founded by Saraswathi “Vani” Balgam. Vani is a writer, director and creative producer with several award winning shorts and documentaries to her credit.

Vani served as the Head of Creative Management for DreamWorks Animation in Shanghai, where she championed Chinese storyboard artists to tell authentic Chinese stories designed for global audiences. Vani was also the Executive Director of Rhythm & Hues India, a multiple Academy Award winning Animation and VFX studio. She started the studios in Asia, and managed the teams of artists and technicians that created the digital characters in “Life of Pi”, “Night at the Museum”, “The Golden Compass” “X-Men”, and “The Chronicles of Narnia”.

Vani is currently developing a slate of animation projects based on her original stories under the banner of Dancing Atoms. Vani is also overseeing several hand picked projects conceived by creatives in the USA and India.
