‘Because we have a lot of time, would you like to see my film?’ I asked my classmates reluctantly.
‘Yes. Show us. You have been talking about it for so long’, TMS said.
‘Let’s screen the film’, SK added.
‘Put it up on the projector’, Sir told me.
‘Okay’, I said with a smile and took the pen drive out and went to set up the projector.
I had been talking about my film for some time. When I had put up the poster on facebook last month, some of my classmates had expressed the wish to see the film. Barring a couple of them, nobody had any clue what the film is about. I had no intention of revealing the suspense to anyone and wanted them to see it for themselves.
It had started as my final project for graduation. Shot over less than a week’s time with at least 3 shooting schedules between February to May 2013, the post-production led to the conversion of over 5 hours of footage shot on Mini DV tapes to a 24 minute long ‘short documentary film’.
