42 Year old Sasi is a corporate & Ad film maker, lives in Hyderabad. One day he plans to go to his village and capture visuals using the new drone he bought. His village is in Telangana state in Jogulamba Gadwala district. It’s called Nouroji Camp. Almost 60 years back a man from Andhra came here and settled and his relatives and friends also followed the same, because buying farms is very cheap comparatively at their native place. That’s how it became Nouroji Camp.
Film maker Sasi got very strong bonding with this village, his grandparents lived there and he used to go there for every vacation. His grandparents are no more but Sasi visits the village twice in a year. This time he decided to visit the village with a purpose, shooting the village with a drone camera. And he wants to take his niece who has never been to Camp. Sasi is very close to his niece, they are like good friends. Sasi’s girl friend (a Bengali) also joins them. Three of them hit the road and reache the village. They spend two nights and three days there.
Story will be told from three different perspectives of the main characters and the villagers perspective.
Director’s Note :
My village Camp is in a very remote place, very underdeveloped , still no direct bus facility. But it’s a very picturesque village. Most of this generation’s kids are missing going to villages when they get holidays. I want to give a nostalgic trip to people who have grown up with strong bonding with the villages and show the peaceful village life to the current generation. As paddy crop season is ending entire fields are gonna be golden very soon. I am planning to shoot before they cut the crop.
What are we going to do after finishing the film ?
Earlier we did one film titled A LOVE LETTER TO CINEMA inspired from a Iranian film.
As we didn’t have much budget we used very basic equipment, this time we want to shoot in 4k and Surround sound recording equipment. For sure it won’t be like a documentary, it will be a visually beautiful entertainer. In regular industry terms it will be a ‘feel good film’. Our main target is film festivals and if it get selected in one film festival at least there will be chances to sell it to video streaming apps. And there is a possibility of very minimal release, for this we will approach Multiplexes.
As alternate content is getting recognition with audiences we are hoping this film will also get back investment.
And we are looking for at least 4-5 producers, as we are experimenting with content we don’t want the burden on one producer.
We are planning to shoot between 20-25th December, after that harvesting will be over. So in the first phase we need at least 3,50,000/- ( $5000). After shooting we will come up with a trailer for crowdfunding pitch. We will pitch to individual producers and also to crowd.
