The Diary - Short horror mini-series (Episode One)

Last night, I finally finished editing my latest short film and uploaded it to my YouTube channel. It took me  3 weeks to make this. Its still considered a long time frame to make a 5 minute short but then I had to re-shoot quite a lot and also I could only shoot after sunset even though the entire story is indoors.

What I am trying to achieve is to make a mini-series around the plot that I have started. So this was episode one and I need to think of ideas to expand the storyline. I reckon this will be easier than thinking about a new plot all the time like I have done in the past. One big difference is that I have done the dialogues in Hindi and the reason behind that was purely personal. I always wanted to make something in my language.

The end goal before this year ends still stands, I want to get 500 Subscribers, so let's see if I am able to achieve that!!

 

 

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..

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!
