Making a short film..

I have finally started to stick to my resolution this year of trying to get more subscribers on my youtube channel by making and uploading more videos.Last year, by the way, I crossed 100 subscribers!! So, I have started on my first video this year and even though I'm never satisfied with what I shoot, However I think this one is shaping up well. As most of the videos I shoot, this one too is from the horror genre - maybe this time around my thought process was inspired by a wonderfully executed Indian horror movie called "Pari", that I recently watched. I am posting an image of the scenes from the movie I've shot so far, which I think is kind of creepy!

A minor milestone - 100 Subcribers on YouTube!

I know, the number isn't that high but today I hit 100 subscribers on my youtube channel! It's like a mini milestone for me, to put things in perspective there are 100 people on the planet who are interested in the content I create on youtube!. I know I don't post and upload videos very often which I really should and if I did, the number in all likelihood would be higher. Although that is a separate conversation all together. The next challenge I have is to buy a new camera since I sold  the one I had (Cannon 6D). I wanted to buy the Sony a6500, but unfortunately used up the money from my Cannon for something else! So now I don't have a camera to make any videos :-(

Anyway, I will hopefully get one soon and get back to making some new videos but until then, this day feels good. Even though my channel has been around for almost 5 years now and I have only just hit 100. I know, this is not a big number but its a number I guess!

15 second horror film challenge!!

Alright then, I have decided to take part in the 15 second horror film challenge which is an online event that happens every year. The idea is to make a short not more than 15 seconds and make it scary.

Now personally I don't think 15 seconds are enough to really scare anyone, however the idea is to intrigue because 15 seconds is sufficient to develop curiosity if done well and which is what i am hoping to achieve. So lets see how it goes, as I have to get this done by the 21st of this month.

The good thing is that I am almost done with it, just the last 3 seconds remain and after that I will submit my short and I really hope it gets accepted!!

Here is a sneak peak!

Finally done!!

This took a long time coming, never thought I'd take this long to shoot a 4 minute short but in all fairness we only had time on weekends and sometimes we missed certain days as well. So putting all that in perspective I think its alright. Not that the entire world was waiting for me to complete it (I really wish it did though!).

So anyways, like I said I have finished all the shots and now I have to sit down and put it all together in editing, which is really critical and hopefully it should'nt take too much time. Last night I designed my posted for the short in after effects and it came out pretty good, it really made me happy!

Let's see if I can get it out next weekend on the internet, until then the wait continues....
