Qualities that makes a filmmaker better than they are!

   Film making is never been an easy task. It takes a whole lot of effort and perspective. Anyone with an idea and resources can make a short film, but what makes that short film stand out. Some people have a natural flare of narrating as well as putting that narration down to action. Some don’t. But that is alright. Practice and experience makes them a better maker. So what can give an aspiring film maker to follow the right practice and get the right exposure?

There are a few factors that can aid..

1. Clarity of your idea:

The fundamental of any film is an idea. When the idea has clarity, the resources needed will be clear. Though there is another factor to the idea. In terms of making a short film, resources are limited and so make sure the idea revolves around the resource you can lay hands on. Ideas are in abundance, so chose a concept that is clear as well as a well facilitated one.

2. Research:

Dig, dig and dig deeper. To make a good film, watch as many as you can feast your eyes on. The more you watch the more you actually SEE. The camera has got to capture the feel of the movie. The angle of the camera, the lighting, the BGM, the silence and the pause duration before a jump scare makes the film perfect. In order to acquire this knowledge, the maker has to observe the techniques and the psychology of the viewer.

 3. Time management:
Time management is a vital aspect in short film making. The film maker might have a lot to say through their movie but knowing what goes on screen and what doesn’t, makes the film a better one. A short film is about saying less and expressing more.

4. Audience:
Always screen the film to various people, known or unknown. Learn to take positive criticism. The famous spiritual poet Kabir Das quoted to keep your critics closer as critics help clean oneself from within, sans water and soap. At the same time, the filmmaker needs to know where to draw a line. The audience will point out various perspectives but the maker has to choose on implementing the necessary change without altering their baseline idea.

5. Know the fundamentals:

If an engineer isn’t strong with his fundamentals, the bridge is bound to fall. Similarly, fundamentals of film making such as shot composition, sound design, cinematography, editing etc. is a must. The audience will not be aware of these terms, but they can spot that there is something faulty with the making.

6. Keep it original:

Quote-3
Originality is the key to authenticity. And when the final product is authentic, it sells. Take Christopher Nolan for instance. He made the batman trilogy, but what made it a grand success is not just the props and the actors, but the portrayal of Batman through Christopher Nolan’s eyes. While making a film, taking inspiration from various movies is a good practice. But that inspiration must remain a muse and make the movie bloom in its own way. And don’t feel let down, if you don’t have the finances to produce a grandeur movie. The beauty of a short film lies in its limited resources. The film maker’s talent lies where he can take the least resources and make the best of it.

Last but not least…

7. Have faith in your idea:

However important it is to show the film to an audience, it is equally important to follow your instinct. People always have a different point of view and most of them are out of personal experience. That’s what differentiates between a judge and an audience. There will be many ‘judgements’ passed after you showcase your film, but the best judge is our instinct. It never lets us down. That doesn’t mean, don’t take criticism, it means have the clarity to take what is needed. Be bold, be clear, work hard and have faith. That’s what gave us the greatest filmmakers of all times.

A Communist India –People’s Revolution

“The undraped golden moon dazzling against the unilluminated sky,

Watched with tranquility,

The sleepless nights of a hungry beggar, trembling with crisp cold,

Gazed with sympathy at the stressed nights of a jobless home economist

The disturbed nights of a woman scarred and shattered by pointing fingers.

Well, thought the moon, the inexhaustible country needs a transformation.”

Com

A communist India is an interesting thought, isn’t it? Perhaps India needs a revolution. Would we be better off or would things have gotten worse?

Communism, by definition, is a theory or system of social organization in which all the property is owned by the community and each person contributes and receives according to their ability and needs. The most important principle of communism is that no private ownership of property should be allowed. The government controls economy and businesses. They nationalize all industries and factories. Government planning organizations decide what to produce and how to distribute the finished products.For ordinary people prices for everyday articles, like food and clothing, are kept low, so that everybody can afford them.

According to Ministry of Statistics and Program Implementation inflation rate in India was recorded at 5.01% in May 2015. Inflation rate averaged 8.51% from 2012 until 2015.

We always complain about inflation, wouldn’t communism solve the problem of high prices, where government and not market forces of demand and supply decides prices? We will all then be able to afford as many onions as we like.

Inequality, as the notion goes “The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer”. Aren’t the poor suppressed by the upper classes? Where is equality in our so called DEMOCRATIC Nation? Are women really equal to men? In a communist regime, people are treated equally regardless of education, financial stability or gender. Economic boundaries don’t separate or categorize people. The goal is to eliminate the gap between the rich and the poor in order to bring about equality. This means that everyone can work hard equally and harmoniously without stepping on each other’s backs. All the work responsibility and all the rewards reaped are shared equally among citizens. Thus, people will have no sense of envy or jealousy. There can be a harmonious and holistic development solving the issue of high rate of crimes in India.

Unemployment is another major crisis of growing India. According to International Labor Organisation unemployment rate in India is showing an increasing trend since 2011 when it was 3.5%.The same rose to 3.6% in 2012 and climbed to 3.7% in 2013.A large pool of youth in the age group of 18 -25 years despite being skilled are facing unemployment issues.

In a communist system every citizen can hold a job. People are entitled to have jobs because government owns all the means of production. The government can provide jobs for at least a majority of the people .Everyone in a communist India will be given enough work opportunities for them to live and survive. We can minimize the deaths and suicides due to poverty and unemployment. A developing India can thus progress at a greater speed.

Communist societies are very efficient in resource distribution even in localized areas. Communism is a political thought based on sharing efforts and resources. Poverty is a crucial hindrance in the way of process of India’s progress. As per the survey conducted in 2011-2012 the percentage of person below poverty line in Indi was 25.7% in rural areas, 13.7% in urban areas and 21.9% for the country as a whole. Communism ensures equal distribution of wealth. This ideology can help eradicate poverty and leading the nation to advancement

Thus communism aims to create a society without class discrimination or money; a society free from oppression, scarcity and corruption.
