Work on the script for the feature version of ‘Ekki Mukk’ continues slowly but surely. This is a photo of my producer Dhiraj Mahey, hard at work colour coding the various themes and plot points of the story!
It is really an exciting process to go through, as on one hand, we have all seen a lot of movies, and intuitively know a lot about movie structure, but on the other, it is just a huge learning curve.. I’m finding it quite satisfying aiming to make a film that is as magical and strange as our short ‘Ekki Mukk’ was, but which also has a really solid dramatic structure.
The good news is, there are no other films like it! I think we may have to invent a name for the kind of film or genre it is.
Now, back to the script…
