An experience sharing session on making the jump from DIY/mumblecore to professional-driven small-scale filmmaking.
Mumblecore films are amateur & indie looking by definition. With the growing clutter of 500 such features made every year - most of them dead on arrival - content today needs to be clutter breaking & yet meet quality standards set by bigger productions to reach the viewer on platforms like Netflix.
Sudhish Kamath has made four feature films - from the mumblecore coming of age That four letter word (2005) to a phone romance Good Night Good Morning (2010), a collaborative genre bending serialised anthology X - Past is Present (2015) & a real world musical Side A Side B (2017) that was shot on a train from Guwahati to Mumbai with iPhones. Kamath is also a journalist and film critic with two decades of experience.
