Desire

Hi,
Swapnil here, I always wanted to own a blog, but when I actually have it I am completely blank what to write. Why m I writing and why should anyone read it?

These few words are actually going to create my impression, and let me tell you I am really weak at using them......
but I want to dare ....


Erised!
Erised is the mirror of Desire, so we decided to name our group as"ERISED Unlimited”,

Swati, Prasad and Me.
Prasad and I always wanted to make films. This feeling started around 8/9 years back in college time. Prasad taught me how to watch a film. He use to talk so much about English films :) I would sit blank and just wonder how much knowledge this guy has about films. I started following him, and we both became local critics of our college
You know what everybody use to ask us..."e kasa aahe re movie ..Jau ka?"...ha ha ........it doesn’t mean that we always helped them ........haha ....they actually started believing us :))

After college we worked in different fields for 3 years. All these years, there was not a single day, which ended without having guilty feeling for not doing anything towards our dream.


Swati joined us just before One-square(erised'd First short film) started...the fact is that.... she actually made us work practically towards it...
All of us were new to this format...we took help from FTII students.... it’s was Fist short film of every person of the crew. But we did it; last shoot of it went on and on. I remember We worked for 38 hours non stop and got it done...

We won 2nd award for the Best short film in ICE festival 2007...

That’s a first achievement as a group.... and we started working.... we were done with 3 scripts by April 2008

And now it was time to start with 2nd production.... and we decided to go ahead with "Kya aam aadmi surakshit hai"
Lot of work was to be done ...so lot of friends and professionals came in the picture .......
Next 1 month it was really a day and night hard work of the whole team....
We were ready with KAASH at 5.am on 29th of April..
Film was sent to ICE 2008 ...got selected and was screened at City Pride Pune.

28th of May ...film won "Critic’s Award for best Film award" at ICE festival 2008...
Second award in a row at ICE.

Now its 31th today ...and Erised is already on hunt for new content!
Its great feeling that we are actually following our hearts. And Running After the DREAM.

we are in search of desire

“If your success is not on your own terms, if it looks good to the world but does not feel good in your heart, it is not success at all.”

So..if you are confident on your capabilities & outcomes, you are successful…

Keep going!!!

Hi,
This is Harpreet. I am a friend of Garima at Cybage. We were just gossiping about in the lunch hours when she happened to mention about your work. Going through your blog I really couldn't find out any links for the same, but would love to. I too happen to have a very deep interest in movie making, but like its probably documentaries for you, its mainstream cinema for me :) Anyways, would love to see your work though. Feel free to drop in a mail at harpreetkanwar@gmail.com
