After many unsuccessful ideas about doing something different , which not been converted in reality. It’s time to change our willing in actuality. Haider Ali, a guy with smart look , intelligent in studies , good in singing have initial ideas of making a very short running moments of college days, which can be remembered by all faculties , juniors and already leaved our seniors. A great work required always a good team to conceptualize the things in reality. Our college not have so many studious guys. But every person have their talent in their specific domain. Mr. Ali started initial communication with guys to achieve that target.Within 2-3 days , he was prepared with his team to work on the documentary. And I am too there with his team. It’s nice experience over all work on a short movie. Initially we have planned for our college audience. We had our first official meeting on 15 February , 2012 in Nehru garden, Jodhpur. And the discussion on script/ story started. We had planned that it should be in limit of only 10 – 15 minutes.
During college days Aaftab Hussain running a small tution center , after words which becomes ” Udan Classes “. We choose that place as our studio and meeting spot. Side by side we have our concentration on music too , and had planned for two songs release. Mr. Ali had knowledge of music too much , but he never accepted it and said he only knows 10% music of which actually required. Navneet Dhanjal , simple personality , had low energy , little talking guy had great talent in creation of sound clips , which we had used in our promotional trailer of movie. Every week, we had shooting as per our plans and places.
With a moto of entertainment , we was planning of some type of serious social message on engineering. Which we already decided it should be on such serious problem that it can go through every heart deeply. And finally we decided to explore the problem of unemployment , specifically in engineering field. It seems like a small child , we have no idea when it’s become a teenage guy. Things are always not so easy to do. We had such problems too from starting to last. Camera, sounds, editing , places for shoot was only such initial things. Our college also denied to permit us shooting in campus. We had only eight active members , and hundreds of supporters. Marketing of this short movie was required too. When we was on the 60% completion of movie. We released a trailer of movie and marketed it a lot Facebook, twitter, you tube , via website & many more ways. Our Facebook page likes increasing day by day very speedily. Surprisingly first trailer of movie gone a big hit. We never hoped such a nice response. After that response now we was thinking of releasing it on city level in a multiplex for a day. But it still too far to reach at end. The main problem was , we have to complete it before ending of our semester because it’s our last semester of engineering. And some of us planning to go out after completion of engineering including me.
Aaftab and Ravindra both was working on the editing of shooting clips which was so important in terms of, it should be as small as possible. And it’s already became near around 30 mins long. After it , A new thought came into discussion that it’s was becoming boring min per min. And off course audience would be youngsters maximally. We came on love story, suspense , horror and some other few ideas. And finally bonded whole story in a horror and generic sequences. All agreed too on the same thought which came after a lot discussion. And lastly we shoot it too in our studio. I was in Noida that time so not actually seen how it prepared but all guys did it so well.
We all haven’t thought a big problem will occur at the time of release. When we reached to completion of movie. We had problems of sounds in movie. We look over many studios for recording of voice in it. Just before releasing of movie we tried a lot for completion of sound recording. Finally all gone in vain. We decided to skip the release on 26 may 2012. At the end of day, each one of us have little tears cause of postponed release. And this time decided to take time for uncompleted things but sure about a big bang on next release date.
I was not there with the team after that but they did it with very well manner. And that release date come for which we are waiting since 6 months. Engr’s – something more about engineers has released in Nasrani Bioscope , Jodhpur on the date of 9 September 2012. We were watched that movie millions time earlier but we were there to see audience’s expressions on each scene of it.
There were sound of clapping in picture hall and we all were there to enjoy that awaiting moment.
