Short Film - Update

Last evening, I finally completed all my scenes for the short film that I am currently trying to make. The only part left to shoot is the one with the "Ghost", who is obviously a girl. I will probably finish that by the first week of next month. The music has been completed as well and just minor editing work is pending, besides the 2 scenes of the girl.

I am almost tempted to cut a 5 second teaser, but I don't think I will do that since the entire short is just over 3 mins, it doesn't pose great value making a trailer out of it..

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 Resolution...

Another year, and a different set of plans to conquer. In most cases its the same plans as the previous year, just that you have been lazy to get them done! In my case, I figured if I have that in writing even if its digital, I might aim to achieve that! So here goes, this year I aim to take my film making hobby to the next level and try to make more videos and focus on really good content! Right now, I am at 110 subscribers, by the end of the year if I get over 500 and somewhere close to a 1000, I would say its a job well done. So yea, let's try that and see if I can manage that and in case I fail, well there is always next year! (j/k)


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!

I deleted the Facebook app from my phone - Best thing ever!

So, its been about three weeks I guess since I deleted the Facebook app from my phone as a random decision. (Well not really, it was "inspired" by my wife as she had done the same thing a few days before me!). At first it did feel odd trying to browse Facebook, when I wanted using the Safari browser on my iphone. i must say the experience isn't smooth and a bit clunky. So anyway, the only time I would actually be on Facebook would be at night on my ipad, which by the way still has the app or from my imac at home. But slowly that habit started going away and I for days would'nt check Facebook at all and even if I did, it would be for like 5-10 minutes and then get bored of the experience and close it.

I am in no way trying to bring down the experience of Facebook in general or trying to say other's should follow the same path, its just something I tried and its working out pretty well for me. I wasn't the most active person on Facebook anyway when I used it heavily, the most activity I would have is when I uploaded one of my short films, but other than that I was a random browser on Facebook.

So yea, its hard to imagine how by removing something from your phone, eventually makes you forget things. Its also really scary, how we all are dependant on our phones in our daily life. Ofcourse it has numerous benefits but the pitfalls and also greater! So yea, I am now almost Facebook free and I intend to keep it that way for sometime! (I hope)
