DIY - Artist Talk & Film
The sky is the limit. This is how Srinivas Sunderrajan describes his approach to his debut feature film 'The Utitled Kartik Krishnan Project', which he wrote one sleepless night in 2009. And although all plans for locations, cast and budget generally began with optimism, but soon had to be reduced, the energy remained intact. The Indian director had to manoeuvre the crew past regular conditions and work largely without permits, which is why the film was shot over 15 weekends, including shooting at the local bar at 5 am. Debut films like Q's rap eruption 'Gandu', Karan Gour's obsession drama 'Corrode' and Sunderrajan's two films 'The Untitled Kartik Krishnan Project' and 'Greater Elephant', are all showing during the festival, and Indians Indies has largely found its strength in India's new Do It Yourself directors, who make a virtue out of the aesthetics and energy that grow from it. Come and meet the self-proclaimed DIY artist Srinivas Sunderrajan, who works as independent NBO (Non Bollywood Organization) - and hear about how you shoot a film, for the price of an iPhone.
