Devils Angels and Dating - short film


It gives me immense pleasure to kick start this New Year on this blog with this wonderful film I was a part of. It's my first ever experience to work in a production on a global scale (online). Although I worked on only ONE shot, I did learn an enormous lot, thanks to the awesomely talented (and patient) director Michael Cawood! (Here's the entire thread on the WIPs along with Mike's notes if you'd like to read.)

BTW this entire film was made based purely on sheer volunteer work. That's right, no budget!! It's amazing what a team can achieve given the right direction.

Another reason why this film is special to me is because it came to me as a boon during my bed rest period. Due to my accident, I lost my job and I was looking for that one opportunity to prove my mettle. Things looked bleak because I physically couldn't go to work anywhere. And nothing really challenging came my way via freelance!

That's when I stumbled upon this project and since then, there's been no looking back! My friend Sathya deserves a special mention here for introducing me to it. :)

So I really thank Mike for taking me in and giving me this golden opportunity to be a part of a global team.

Looking forward to being a part of more of such great adventures.

P.S. The film is translated to different languages on YouTube. Just click on the 'CC' button.
