As always happen when there is HERO there is a VILLAIN. Chhota bheem and team came to know that they can’t go inside the kingdom because of Hidambak i.e villan of movie. Real Movie starts from there, Children will not stop Laughing. Great sense of comedy in the movie.

The day started with a session on Skill Development inthe Film Industry: Standardized Training Techniques with guest speaker Amala Akkineni, Actor & Hon. Director at Annapurna International School for Film and Media along with the MDof NFDC, Nina Lath Gupta.In an interactive session, Amala spoke about her initiative with Kamal Haasan, towards establishing norms for vocational training for the film sector.She believes that emerging technologies has not only increased the scope of content creation across multiple formats and platforms but have also scaled up the requirement for trained and skilled workers & technicians. It is important that not only the heads of departments, but also the rest of crew are in sync with the best of technology and their effective application. Talking about the Skill Development program, Amala says, “India is 200 years behind in everything and in films; we are still in the beginner stage. If you see in Hollywood, they are far ahead of us and give opportunities to skilled people. The Indian Film Industry is in immense need of skilled people and we must encourage them.

The next session was on Film in India with State focus on Madhya Pradesh; guest speakers- Sandesh Yashlaha, Company Secretary, In-Charge – Film Unit, MP State Tourism Development Corporation Ltd. and filmmaker PrakashJha conducted this session. Having shot films like Rajneeti, Aakarshan, Chakravyuh, Satyagrahand upcoming film Jai Gangaajal, PrakashJha shared his experience. “I am extremely fortunate to have discovered Madhya Pradesh as a shooting destination. During the 7 films that I have shot in the State of Madhya Pradesh, I have never had a day of disturbance while shooting. Even when we had the problem of change of locations, the authorities were kind enough to open up the offices even at midnight, to facilitate the paperwork. The entire city of Bhopal works for you as a film studio. The State of Madhya Pradesh along with its people have a very co-operative attitude towards filmmakers”, added filmmaker Jha.

New Voices: Pushing Boundaries in Creation, Marketing, and Monetization was moderated by filmmaker AnuragKashyap while directors AmitMasurkar (SulemaniKeeda) and BardroyBarrettoNachoaeaKumpasar shared insights on making and releasing their films. Amit’s contemporary indie-classic SulemaniKeeda had a small theatrical release, garnered good reviews, and was later released online on theviralfever.com. Amit said, “I made the film in 8.5 lacs because everyone worked for free and then we needed another 20 lacs to release the film. I didn’t go into crowd-funding because I didn’t’ want that obligation. We have had many people who championed the cause of the film.”

BardroyBarrettodirector of NachoaeaKumpasarsaid, “The movie has been running for 1 year in one screen in Goa.We are banking on word-of-mouth publicity and I’m taking it to different platforms and cities, at our own pace. We did crowd-funding and within 4 years we expect to break even, repay our producers, and make more money.”

AnuragKashyap said that there are many ways to exhibit a movie and people need drive. “We must not run to distributors and exhibitors. We must let them come to us. Web series are a great option for us right now. Netflix has released Gangs of Wasseypur as a web-series now. The other advantage of a web series is that we do not need to deal with obnoxious censorship and we have creative freedom.”

He added, “If you have the drive to recover your money, you can make it happen. GuneetMonga, for example, took her movie from school to school in order to break-even.”

The guest speaker for the session on VR Technology & New Film Narratives wasShekharKapur and moderated by Sudhir Mishra. ShekharKapurstarted the session with telling the audience that they are in an age where one carries their screen in their pocket and onecan watch films on their handset. People all over the world are creating creative content on their phones and will soon be using the Virtual Reality Technology for the experience which will customize film viewing further.

Each viewer wears the VR headset and navigates through the film viewing experience.They can choose certain perspectives in the film and even situations.  In other words, every viewer in a room can actually watch the same film differently. Immersive Viewing as it is called is the next big thing and this kind of viewing experience makes you wonder about the future of content creation. Talking about his experience with VR, ShekharKapur says, “I am experimenting with virtual reality filmmaking. I have always wanted to make a film on Buddha but three hours would be too long. Now I am trying to make a 13-14 minutes film on Buddha with VR.”

The surprise element of today was VidhuVinod Chopra and Abhijat Joshi showcased the trailer of Wazir to the audience attending Film Bazaar today.

Partnerships Manager at Twitter India, PratikshaRao conducted a session on Twitter – Super Interactive, Multi-platform Hosts. The session was on Twitter India’s focus to expand greater usage of the medium for social media marketing.

The session on Re-Creating Real Stories-Crossing the Legal Bridge (including Challenges in the context of copyright/IPR; E&O) featured filmmakers Anurag Kashyap and Ketan Mehta along with MadhuGagodia, Equity Partner, NaikNaik& Company and was moderated by broadcast journalist and producer, Anuradha Sengupta. Both the prolific filmmakers cited instances of the difficulties they have faced and the absurd cases slapped against them during the making of biopics and real-life inspired movies. They have had to fictionalize facts. AnuragKashyap said, “Making films in the country is a painful process.  I had a terrible time releasing Black Friday because it was based on the 1993 Bombay blasts. Filmmakers are a soft target for everything. If the government wants to increase feelings of patriotism, then they insert the National Anthem, if they want to stop smoking, they have a no-smoking disclaimer. These rules don’t apply to anyone else.”Ketan Mehta added, “India is the most litigious country. Litigations, extortions, and controversies are the reality of filmmaking in India.”

Priyanka Raina (Film Critic and Short Film Maker)

Being from a Business Background, I always wanted to pursue in my Film Industry and Thank God , I have eventually made it.

Firstly , When was in college I had no idea how to enter and so just used to google “How to Enter Film Industry”. Finally found out the way was Acting classes, so went to Kishore Namit, but again dropped the idea as was far from my place.Then second option was Ashok Kumar Academy at Chembur. And Luckily when classes over , gave auditions at Balaji Telefilms and eventually got selected for “Kyunki saas bhi kabhi thi” which became College fame.

After college, to learn more aspects of Acting joined Theaters with EKJUTE to go more deep into it. Then my interest came towards Direction so left and did Two years course in Direction and Graphics.  which eventually helped me make my first Short Film AZAAD BHARAT

The the ways continued with lots of work , My Films “Daal Mein Kuch Kaala Hai” , “DunnoY2” and many more. Apart from Features,  Short Films have never stopped for me as you loose your practise. Then “Clean and Green India” which won me many awards and appreciation with huge round of applause.

Then came DUM , Who is responsible based on different creteria and finally ZINDAGI which is written by Kapil Sharma. Zindagi features Sahila Chaddha, Yuvraaj Parashar and introduces a new bie Preety Malik.

Apart from short films , AD fillms have also been in Kitty like cooperate AD for Mahindra Tracter, Nakshatra AD with Mohan Bhandari, Apna Bazaar AD (Upinder Raisuddin) . Apart also I love reviewing films and got opportunity to write for fewer websites – Bharat Cine Tv Writers , Universal Newsline , OmniScent Entertainment

Well That was my Short and sweet Description, will come soon with something new till then keep following me on Facebook and Twitter
