Vaibhav Studios Scoops Up Awards for Nickelodeon Idents at Promax India 2020

Vaibhav Studios has added more feathers to its cap! The animation studio, best known for Lamput, swept away the most number of awards at the Promax India 2020 and one award at the Venice TV Awards for its funny, whacky and captivating idents for Nickelodeon India.

Helmed by founder and animation veteran Vaibhav Kumaresh along with his team of talented animators/directors – Ajit Aher, Dapoon Rai Dewan and Anand Babu, the Nick idents bagged four awards at the Promax Global Excellence Awards in Los Angeles and a whopping 12 awards at the Promax Awards India in 2019.

Commenting on the same, an elated Kumaresh shared with Animation Xpress, “I’m delighted and want to congratulate our entire team, especially our directors and animators Aher, Dewan and Anand. The animated ident campaign that we created for Nickelodeon India are doing great at the awards. The sole intention behind conceiving and pitching this ‘handmade’ campaign was for us to detox from the increasing digital projects we had been working on for a long time! I’m glad Nick India bought our idea and paid us to have fun! The campaign was truly refreshing for us, and we’re glad that the fun continues even now!”

Here’s the full list of awards won by the animation studio for their work for Nickelodeon:

Promax India 2020

Nickelodeon Garba Ident – GOLD
Best Brand Image Campaign (Out of House)
Best Brand Image Design (Out of House)
Best Ident (Out of House)
Best Original Music / Score
Best Holiday / Seasonal Promo

Nickelodeon Vada Pav Ident – SILVER
Best Ident (Out of House)

Venice TV Awards 2020

Nick Valentine’s Ident – Best Programme Promotion

Speaking about the idents, Dewan commented, “This year has been amazing at the awards, just like last year. It is special for me because these films mark my debut as a co-director and a conceptualizer. It’s been an amazing learning curve where I needed to think of every aspect of filmmaking – be it the story, the storyboards, the set design, the model making, the animation, the lighting and even the music. Each of these areas were tremendous fun and will always be a memorable experience for me. I thank Vaibhav and the folks in my studio for giving me this opportunity. Also, special mention to Roto Shah, the music director of the Street food Rap [Vada Pav ident] and the Train [Valentine’s Day] idents, who single handedly created such catchy tunes for both the films!”

Kumaresh further mentioned, “For me the greatest fun is when we are collectively conceiving and producing the films. The amazing feedback from our audience coupled with awards globally is merely a byproduct of the fun we had. I’m sure there’s more to come! Also, special kudos to music composer Narayan Parasuram for directing multiple live musicians and composing a highly intricate musical track for the Garba ident. No wonder it won him the Gold for the best original music score.”

An equally excited Parasuram added, “I’m obviously very thrilled at the award sweep that the Nick Garba idents have won. I’m also happy that its music has been recognised. The music is very unique in its compositional form. It’s very traditional Gujrati folk Garba music and the entire 40 seconds track is completely acoustic. 10 to 15 musicians played it, from dhol to shehnai to jhanj and others;  no electronic programming, instruments were used. For that you need a very gutsy producer like Kumaresh as it involves more cost, more effort because you don’t sit with a laptop and download ethnic music. It could have been done that way, but the way we did it has a magic of its own. The magic is highlighted more as it’s based on an ancient Indian Raga – Brindabani Sarang and I’ve tried to bring that element in the contemporary, funky piece of snackable content on Gujrati food. So, it’s a ‘sangam’ of food and music of which the Gujrati culture is very passionate about. Thanks to Kumaresh for giving me this opportunity.”

The vocal track is sung brilliantly by Upaghna Pandya, a scholar (MA in Gujrati) who lent her voice for Makdee songs as a child. She brought in the authentic, rustic Gujrati accent though the lyrics are mostly gibberish.

A huge congratulations to Vaibhav Studios, Nickelodeon and to everyone involved in making the Nickelodeon Idents!

Shedding light on the project, he noted, “It involved unique concepts using unique techniques that fused multiple mediums. They loved it, and commissioned the very first set of idents which also worked fabulously for the network including winning several national & international awards. Buoyed by the success, NICK commissioned the ‘sequel’! Now to see the sequel perform even better is indeed a pleasure. Special kudos to our directors Anand Babu, Dapun Rai Dewan, Ajit Aher, and the entire team at Vaibhav Studios. A big shout out to music composers Roto Shah & Narayan Parasuram as well.”

Celina stars as Dylan's cousin Rebecca on the popular Nickelodeon show Young Dylan. She often has to keep the boys in line and help them stay out of her way and out of trouble.



Young Dylan (AKA Dylan Gilmer) is the star of the hit series Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan and also a nominee at this year’s Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Awards.

11 year old Dylan Gilmer is a force to be reckoned with!  The budding star was discovered when he posted a video of himself at the age of five rapping up a storm.  Ellen Degeneres booked him on her show, introduced him to Tyler Perry and the rest if history.  Not only is Dylan headlining his own series on Nickelodeon,  but he is up for Best Male TV star at the upcoming Kid’s Choice Awards. 

Comedian and Saturday Night Live star, Kenan Thompson will take kids on a wild and slimy ride as the host of Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards 2021. For the first time ever, Nickelodeon’s Orange Blimp will leave the KCA venue and take fans on a wild ride around the world and beyond. Filled with slime and messy stunts, viewers will travel to outer space, Bikini Bottom and right into celebrities’ homes using XR technology. This year’s show will also feature live and interactive fan walls that bring celebrities and families at home to the main stage; second screen live voting all night long where fans stay in control; and a KCA award presented by one lucky family chosen during the show. 

Grammy® Award-winning global superstar Justin Bieber is set as the headline performer of the night. 

With Thompson at the helm, kids and families everywhere will get the chance to be a part of this year’s show like never before for an epic celebration of fan-favorite stars across the worlds of film, television, music, sports and more.

Dylan Gilmore stars as Young Dylan in Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan on Nickelodeon. His journey began with a video his parents posted on Instagram four years ago rapping Bryson Tiller’s “Don’t,” which went viral. Ellen DeGeneres invited him to appear on her show and since then, he has become a regular guest and performer on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. 

Dylan was a fan-favorite on America’s Got Talent. His prior work with Nickelodeon began with an appearance on Lip Sync Battle Shorties and All That. He is nominated for “Favorite Male TV Star” at this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards and continues to work on releasing his own music.

I spoke with Dylan about his show, his aspirations and most importantly, getting slimed!

Season two of Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan kicked-off at the beginning of the month and fans cannot get enough. The talented young star of the show, Dylan Gilmer, took a moment out of his busy schedule to dish exclusively with BCKOnline.. Take a look below at what he had to say and make sure you are tuning into the Nickelodeon show because this is one season that you don’t want to miss!

BCK: What made you want to start acting?

Dylan Gilmer: What made me want to start acting was that I always loved watching Marvel movies and Tyler Perry movies, and the actors who’ve really inspired me are Will Smith and Chadwick Boseman because, first of all, Chadwick played Black Panther and I’ve always wanted to be a superhero in a movie. I’ve always just wanted to be an actor myself honestly. And when I found out that I was going to be playing a main character and the show was named after me, that was amazing! Man, I was so excited. It was just a dream come true and I felt shocked. I couldn’t believe it when they said that!

BCK: Tell us about your role on Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan?

DG: My character is an aspiring rapper and star-in-training. He loves his family. His grandmother moves him in with his cousins and uncle, and he turns their lives upside down.

BCK: What has been your favorite moment on the set so far?

DG: Just interacting with all the people at Tyler Perry Studios. I have such a bond with everyone there, like everybody knows me and when I walk outside, we all say hi to each other. Everyone has such great manners and I just love being around that positive environment.

BCK: Season two has kicked off. Can you tell us about what viewers can expect this go around?

DG: You can expect new characters and new settings. You can expect Young Dylan going extra hard wanting to be a rapper. You can also expect just new stuff in general and this season, in my opinion, is even better than season one.

BCK: You are also a rapper. Tell us how you got started in music?

DG: How I got started in music was one day we were coming home from the barber shop and my father said we should do a video of me doing this popular song called “Don’t” by Bryson Tiller, and it went viral. That’s how I started my rapping career and people were saying “why don’t you make music and start writing your own music?” and I was like “alright!” and it just went off from there.

BCK: Who is your favorite rapper? Why?

DG: My favorite rapper is Drake. I’ve always loved him and have always wanted to be just like him in my own career as a rapper.

BCK: Who is your favorite actor? Why?

DG: My favorite actors are Will Smith and Chadwick Boseman. They’re both so talented. Also, Chadwick played Black Panther and I’ve always wanted to play a superhero too.

BCK: What is one thing that nobody knows about you?

DG: One thing that nobody knows about me is that I love collecting action figures, like Marvel toys, anime toys, DC toys. That’s what I love doing and nobody knows that about me!

BCK: What advice would you give other kids that want to break into acting?

DG: Advice I would give to other kids wanting to break into acting is that if this is really your dream, go hard, perfect your craft and watch actors. I’ve learned so much from watching other actors perform, experienced actors of course, and they’ve taught me a lot of stuff. Like some sad parts of a movie and happy parts of a movie, like how to get those expressions when filming scenes.

BCK: If you could fast-forward and talk to your future self, what would you tell him?

DG: I would tell him “thank you for letting me be the man I am now. You really did great and had a lot of fun, and I’m happy I get to be you when I grow up!”

BCK: What can we expect to see from Young Dylan coming up both on screen and off?

DG: On the show, you can expect to see a great dynamic with everyone. You can expect to see us pranking each other and just having fun with all of the kids there. You can expect a lot of new settings and new characters, and you can also expect to see Young Dylan maturing. And I’m rapping more, and I get to hit up a few record labels this season too!

For me personally, you can expect an album coming soon. I’ve also been auditioning to do new movies and new TV shows, so that’s been very exciting, and you can expect a lot to come.
