Here it is, finally. My first short film, shot in 2004, wouldn’t have seen the light of day had it not been for the following people who’d responded, gave it their all, and made me a proud first-time filmmaker.Posting this film here is a little special for me because I started this blog because of this little film. Back then I had no idea what else I could do with a blog, so I wrote a ‘history’ of this movie, in two freakin’ parts. I was on Blogger. As is still the case, sometimes, I would ‘apologize’ before I shared something I loved talking about. 4 years later, watching the movie, I can spot hundreds of things I could do better when making them – same goes for blogging. But it’s being able to go back and see who I was and how I was doing things that makes both these mediums so gratifying to be a part of. It’s me in pieces. Hope you enjoy the movie.
