*** Whoa! Thanks to your very generous contribution, we met our funding goal and exceeded it! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! We are already in post-production and against the background of sufficient funding, we can now put all our energy on our post-funding activities.
For those who still wish to be part of this amazing film, you still have an opportunity to contribute and any additional contribution will make these seemingly lofty milestones come true - Professional Color Grading, 5.1 Audio Mastering and last but not the least, widen our Distribution to more film festivals and our Premiere in San Jose!!.
Thank You again and onwards to our stretch goals ***
What is Flame?
Flame is a short film about someone you know - maybe a friend, maybe a colleague, maybe that person you speak to on the train everyday, maybe about you! It is a film about two hearts that were once inseparable but then pulled apart and then being drawn together again by the mysterious laws of nature. However, the tangential forces of marriage and family threaten to smother and extinguish this very Flame of love. Who will prevail?
Why another short film?
The allure of Flame is not just the beautiful story and the gripping narrative. It has a visual story telling that is very unique and you’ll get to witness the product of pushing the camera to it's limits.
Who is the team behind Flame?
Flame is being put together by a very talented group of individuals who love film making and films. Flame was written by Rajesh Naroth along with Krishand K. Rajesh, who has also directed this film and composed it’s music, has produced a couple of excellent short films in the past under the Sonic Tales banner. Kirandeep Karnati architected the surreal production design and it was all brought to life by cinematographer Unni Raveendranathan. Finally, Deergha Sahni and Tanish Chandraprakash play the role of the two beautiful souls who so passionately kindle the Flame.
Why are we out here and what are we requesting?
You deserve quality cinema and we want to make sure that the experience you get while watching Flame puts you in a different world where dreams transform to reality. To give that experience, we are putting in a lot of effort to make sure every aspect of the film has extreme finesse. Unfortunately, in the real world, this costs money and we so badly want to get this movie to you that we are not letting our financial obstacles slow us down. So, here we are hoping that you share our belief in producing a great film and hence help us pay for some of the costs.
Specifically, this is what we need :-
Rental for facility - $150
Equipment purchases & rental - $500
Set building - $200
Food - $550
Transportation - $100
Talent and crew remuneration - $1000
Post Production - $500
We're running a tight ship, most of us are putting in sweat equity and you can be assured that every penny is spent with utmost prudence and transparency.
What is in it for you?
The biggest reward for you will be the chance to experience something that is so close to our every day life wrapped in fine cinema. While we believe this is your biggest reward, we want to show our appreciation by offering something more. Please refer to the contribution levels on the right.
Can you spread the word?
Along with your monetary support, we would love to have you spread the word about Flame with your other friends who we believe would be greatly rewarded by this beautiful film.
What happens if we don't meet our funding goals?
We're sure that you won't let the Flame burn out !
