Cinema as a term dictates the production of films as an art or industry. Furthermore, it paves the road for imagination to be brought into reality. The elements that act as the cement or rocks that help build the road are- director, actors, writers, cameraman, gazillion more things and most importantly - vision. It is that which brings all these elements together. Cinema in the 1800s meant - a single scene, about a minute long and they were- silent, which is nothing more than just pictures floating in front of the eyes that portrayed movements that never seemed to seep deeper. Once a while an
India is a country of plurality, with people of numerous cultures, speaking hundreds of different
languages and following multiple religions residing in the country. This kind of diversity is rarely
found in any other country in the world. Keeping up with this diversity, Indian cinema too, all
though usually only associated with Bollywood, has a number of regional film industries that
produce over 1000 films each year. India annually produces the largest number of movies in
The various Indian regional film industries have been producing films for many years but it is only recently that a lot of these regional...
Walking down the street, he pulled his thin jacket tighter around himself, barely shielding him from the cold. It was a foggy evening, and he couldn’t see twenty feet ahead of him. Across the street, he saw a group of older boys laughing, entering a dimly lit but warm café. It was the same group that had rejected him during football trials at school last week, saying that he was too scrawny to play a rough sport and maybe he could try next year, if the rest of his body can grow into the size of his forehead. Aaron knew he was better than most of the people on the team, he had been training for 8 years now. It was the only thing his father had ever taught him, before he walked out of the house on a Sunday afternoon, never to come back home again. He loved the sport with all his heart, and even when his mother forbade him...
What is it about any story that makes it appealing to people? Why is it that each person has a different
kind of story that they are drawn to?
We've all heard thousands of tales, be it a romantic story from a book or a movie, or an urban legend shared around a dying campfire. The ambiguity and the thrill that accompanies it, is what makes a story amazing. The most wonderful, but also enigmatic quality about stories is that they relate to anyone and everyone, no matter how different people are.
The answer to those questions perhaps, can be found in our everyday life itself. Life works in mysterious ways. It's like an invisible script that people follow, where you don't really know what's going to come next. Sometimes it's predictable, other times it's a...
Once upon a time, in a land far away; in the midst of the forest with a trail of bread crumbs to lead
the way- stood a house made of candy with its own tale to narrate.
If, just like me, you’ve been exposed to a plethora of ‘and they lived happily after’ fairy tales, you know just how the story of Hansel and Gretel unravels. First of the many stories that I read, it taught me skills that I believe are essential for surviving in this rather big bad world. For instance, if someone holds you captive and there’s a minuscule chance of survival, you...
"The power of thought, of idea, is incommensurable, is immeasurable. The world is dominated by thought. " - Emile Coue.
For a filmmaker every thought is an opportunity. An opportunity to express himself, his feelings and put forth his point of view to the world. These thoughts are not restricted. He manifests his own world, that functions on rules that he creates. There are no boundaries, no concept of the 'illogical' and no concept of time.
Anyone can learn the rules of movie making. You could play around with your camera and learn the right...
