So, this year I decided to showcase my finesse (if I may call it) to a broader audience, and compete against some of the best in the world. And not to forget, to gather some exposure. A lot of it, actually. And what better place to do that than @indiafilmproject !
IFP started off as the Ahmedabad Film Project initially, and has grown, if I must say, OUR OF PROPORTIONS in the seven years since it's inception!
This year, I took part in 5/7 genres in the Digital Awards, and as a team leader for the 50 Hour Filmmaking Challenge and as a single person team in the 24 Hour Filmmaking Challenge.
The Digital Awards were mind blowing. It made me realize how cool this art is, and how long I need to go.
The 50 Hour Filmmaking Challenge, was a fun experience. A bunch of sixteen year olds, with an eighteen year old, taking part in the professional category against professionals from SIXTEEN countries was a crazy decision. Learnt a hell lot of stuff from the winning movies, tho.
And at last, the 24 Hour Filmmaking Challenge! This particular event holds very sweet memories. I had to work without a team, which meant, the spot boy, the director, and everything in between was me, and me only. And Also, I was fighting a deadline of 11 Hours instead of 24, because I had other stuff on my shooting schedule. And then, finishing the making in 8 Hours was fun. And seeing the movie place top 100 out of numerous entries was more fun.
The event itself, excluding the competitive aspect, was EPIC! The guests were the best in the country. Thorough professionals in their field.
It was also great to have my team from the 50 Hour Filmmaking Challenge join me on the second day!
Overall, this was an amazing experience. Looking forward to making more and more and more films and attending #IFP again next year!
