Poster for 24 hr film project – Void

“Void” is a story of a girl, who comes to college on a fine day to find that the college is empty. Her search for her friends in college who had persuaded her to come, ends in a very unexpected way.

Back in February, we organized a small workshop called Film Making for Dummies. In the workshop we set out to make an indie short film with a small story, shot in one location, and one which can be wrapped up easily in a day’s shooting. After a lot of discussion about the script, we zeroed in with this script named “Void”. Right from writing the script to story boarding to shooting and making the final edited product was done with all the participants in the workshop. After the workshop, we made some fine tuning before uploading to YouTube.

The film has been funded by The Students’ Council of Heritage Institute of Technology and was made possible by the active participation of members from Pravasana, the film and photography club of the college.

Happenstance [2012]

Featured, Short Films

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Happenstance is a story of a dysfunctional family and some incidents that may appear to be connected at first, but when traced back, prove that life is nothing but a paradigm of circumstances, one leading to the other. The very fact that one timid incident may turn your life upside down, or that, one small truth,when revealed can prove to be detrimental have been shown through this film. It all starts when a girl mysteriously returns to her family after an year and is reluctant to talk about her whereabouts. Her brother, though relieved at first begins to delve into her past after his sister unknowingly, or probably willingly starts making her moves a little too curious for her brother’s comfort.

Directed by Sautraya Bhattacharjee the film was made in April 2012, but got delayed in the editing and post production. Finally in November it was ready for public viewing.

Jack and the Purpose [2012]

The project Jack and the Purpose began way back in 2011 when Akasdeep Bhadra started out with the concept of showing the mindset of a boy going through a stage of identity crisis. Once the script was matured and the team was ready, we started shooting for the film in December 2011, with no crew members. Most of the time extra actors used to help in the shoot, and at times I shot the film with only the director and the actor. After two weeks of hard work, we were finally able to make a copy for sending to the film competition at ISI, Kolkata where it came among the top five films.

Work on the music was still left and continued till the end of January 2012. By February 2012 we were able to release our first short film in Youtube for our viewers.

The film received good reviews and criticism from the film lovers society of our college and a few other film enthusiasts from Kolkata.

The film did not have any story line or a linear timeline. It was an abstract idea and based on a poem, written by Ojoswi Sur, the lead actor of the movie.
