A novel experiment in filmmaking

KOCHI: Anyone with the right aptitude, motivation and also has a good camera and computer might be able to make a worthwhile movie for Rs 4 lakh, in this digital age.

They would have to shell out another Rs 14 lakh as payment to different stakeholder organisations in the industry.

The money required for marketing the movie would be in addition to this, said those at the helm of Theatre Lab Centre of Experimental Theatre Studies, Kochi, while addressing mediapersons here on Tuesday. Their maiden venture �Yathi, the pause in between, would be screened at the Maharajas College Auditorium here on Sunday. The function would also see a discussion on �the democratisation of cinema. The participants would include senior journalist and filmmaker Sasikumar and script writer John Paul.

Directed by Satheesh Mullackal, Yathi is a Malayalam feature film about Narens struggle to survive the recent global recession that shattered his dreams of making it big in the real estate sector.
