Do Not Disturb - Making of First short film by Ashwamedh Kalamanch Part 1

       Ashwamedh Kalamanch has completed its 6 months in the month of January, and within few months it created its positive brand value. The main success of year 2010 was 'Ashwamedh Kalamanch's Drawing Competition 2010' (famously known as AKDC'10). The important aspect of 'AKDC-10' was 630 students participated in the first-ever event of Ashwamedh Kalamanch. Ofcourse the credit goes to Shri.Khilchand Choudhari Sir of my school 'Samarth Vidyalaya, Vidyanagari', and my Marketing team. 

      After the event become successful in Oct'10, there was positiveness in approach of all the team members.So we decided to produce our first 'Marathi' Ekankika. The professionalism came due to entry of  Director Rahul Pingle, who is also a Radio Jockey on 100.7 F.M. gold. The drama 'Lakh lakh chanderi' had around 9 actors from Marathi drama field. We booked 'Vanmali' hall in Dadar for almost 15 days for drama rehearsals. The 'Consolation prize' for Mr. Rakesh Dudwadkar in 'UTTUNG', state level competition in Badlapur was the only 'achievement' from this project. Yet for beginners it was definitely a boosting experience. 

        After 'Lakh Lakh Chanderi' in December, we celebrated 'New Year' party on 1st Jan. In the 'New year' party of Ashwamedh Kalamanch, we discussed about 'short-film' for the very first time. Even though I had the idea of making a short-film from month of December itself, but the actual work started on the 1st of Jan. I invited all the members at home on 4th Jan to show them some of well-made short-films by Indian Directors on and ofcourse on

           People were excited yet not confident that whether we will be able to make a short film at this stage? But I was determined and I had full confidence in my team..I  knew their capabilities. On 8th Jan one of the member of Ashwamedh Kalamanch  'Anant' called me and said 'Deepak, Abhijeet has written some wonderful scripts for short-film. He narrated me 2-3 themes on phone itself. I selected 1 theme out of it, not because I liked it, because I felt the 'Cost of production' will be less for it and we can actually shoot it 'Indoors'.
