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.

Locked Inside

Whisperings Inside Me

After a hectic month of shooting for Visual Krafts, now I am stuck with the huge work of editing and post production. Balancing my work schedule I have to take out time to edit my photos and movies. A few days back, while I was sitting and working in my room, it rained heavily outside. For a short while I was taken away by the rains as i kept gazing at the rain falls. Here is a snap.
