28 October. We are almost touching tomorrow. Expectations are rife. Ripe. Tomorrow will tell us one another what we have done.
Well, being on the other side of the fence, I do know what it looks life. But for participants of the Documentary Filmmaking Workshop, it is a day of great anxiety. And to many, anxiety has peaked already last night.
Some of them did not sleep; they preferred to work in the Department the whole night; they left for home at 7.30 in the morning; and were back at 10.00 a.m. What do you call this – anxiety? passion ? craze? dedication? Call it whatever you wish. They are AT IT.
As of now, one group has completed their movie. Second group will complete it any time now (past 10.00 p.m.); the third and the fourth group are working like women and men possessed! They have decided they will not blink their eyes till they complete their project!
I wish all of you are there tomorrow sharp at 11 a.m. to watch these movies – on Mangalore riots, mangalore roads, a day in the sea, and Sultan Batter. It is a public screening. Some VIPs are expected… Mr Richard Castelino, a famous film maker will be our chief guest. Do join in. I would like to see you.
