My Short Film Equipment I Used for ‘KEYS’ KEYS is a short film I made using my entry level equipment. It’s time to share my own behind the scene experience and my short film making equipment.

A short film maker is confused about the making a short film when he doesn’t have a short film script idea or when he has a lot of short film ideas. My case was the latter one. I didn’t have any camera and I wasn’t ready to rent one. I wanted to buy one for myself and learn it first. So, until the time I wasn’t having any camera I kept writing short film scripts. And, now when I have the camera, I was confused which short film idea to choose and which one to leave as all looked equally good to me with aRead More →

YouTube is one website where the eager young film makers can learn the art of film making, know how to use their camera to its full potential.

All what I have learned about my camera, gadgets and film making is because of these channels, so I won’t rank them. I just want to recommend these channels to the fellow, young, andRead More →

They are neither planned nor anticipated that’s why they are called ACCIDENTS. But, these cannot be taken as granted. We CAN avoid them, reduce the risk, injuries, and DEATHS only if we drive carefully and follow TRAFFIC RULES and give importance to ROAD SAFETY. Rules!, for some “Rules are made to be Broken” – An easy phrase to throw out at the young blood especially when it comes to traffic rules in India. It is a harsh reality and a thing to be ashamed of that how easily Traffic rules are ignored by the people, youngsters being in majority in the country that has theRead More →

Did anybody ever say the followings to you?“This task cannot be done.”“It is next to impossible.”“It is as impossible as getting water from the desert and sand from the sea.” Water from the desert and sand from the sea…? The journey is chopped into 9 levels. Each level has its own difficulty and excitement stages. Let’s start the digging the sand and diving in the ocean at the same time. CompareRead More →

Death will come to us eventually, but has life come to us yet?We all will die, but before that day comes, have we actually lived?Have we lived for ourselves?We can’t ignore death, but haven’t we ignored life one way or the other?A lifeless living is nothing but a slow suicide.

I love sentences written in dramatic way more than the sentences stuffed with complex words. You, on the other hand, may have a different take on it. Employment of composite synonyms in place of straightforward words sometimes turns the middling reader off. It leaves the writer’s image as a pretentious intellectual in the reader’s mind. And Use of simple and regular words puts the erudite reader off. Straightforward and plain formation bores them. They enjoy the write-ups stuffed with complex words as their vocabulary develops this way and they learn new words. Giving predilection to difficult nomenclature in your publication polishes it too. It endowsRead More →

Poet Joe: An old natural pillar Whom leaves are serving as the void filler To cover the gap and provide dense shade Whose fate hasn’t yet decided by a blade Average Jane: Sorry, what?

Now, some become a writer/poet after getting a professional qualification in literature and some are just God gifted amateurs (like me), who no matter what career pathRead More →
