A thought has come to my mind. Am into advertising..my preferred choice of career since 12th std. Speaking of which, I feel am one of those lucky ones who are doing what they really want to do as a part of their job.
Suppose, suppose I get bored out of this in some years and feel like moving to some other industry, where would I like to see myself and doing what?
I want to be a film maker and get into documentary film making...Basically a factual representation with self driven beliefs. So there is a concept, a script, its development, pre-production and post-production, editing ..so many things but it is different every time...yeah it allures me like anything....lemme think for a while about this..as I just had my lunch creative thoughts are bound to come!
Given my background, where i do mostly corporate ad films which are" mostly" commercial and a "few" based on social themes.. hence, it will be a good area to explore!
Freelance film making is lucrative monetarily and also one gets a medium to showcase certain things in a particular way. A well made 10 mts, 30 mts or a 1 hour documentary when reaches appropriate audiences can make a difference.
I want to cover so many aspects. They are endless. Culture in rural areas in India, food habits, dialects, taboos, new wave cinema, fashion, people....capturing the essence of society.
There are different styles in documentaries. And so much to learn...camera handling, angles, light and sound techniques..all needs proper training. Its challenging, innovative and a piece of art.
Just hope that i make sensible use of my time in future :)
p.s. am turning into more of a self-conservationist and self obsessed blogger... whatever that means!
