The Workshop:

Starting with the basics of digital photography (on day 1) we shall move on to more complex uses of Digital SLRs.

 

In the workshop, we deal with HDSLR gremlins- moire, jello, aliasing, heating and ergonomics. There is a demonstration of gear required to convert the HDSLR into a filmmaking device.

 

We give a window into Audio recording and lighting for HDSLR filmmaking.

 

We try to give an overview of the HDSLRs from the iconic Canon EOS 5DMkII to cameras like the Nikon D 810. We also take a peek at the 4K scenario where the low-light camera SONY A7s is giving a challenge to competition.

 

We are practitioners. The workshop is not meant to discuss theory and details of frame rates, line interpolation or film emulsion properties v/s the digital image. We are people who can show others what can be done in a small budget using HDSLRs and mirror-less cameras.

 

Filmmakers and Cinematographers wanting to make the transition to the emerging digital technologies and students of filmmaking, besides photographers and enthusiasts, have attended our previous workshops.

'Who will be a Gurkha' by Kesang Tseten at "THEfdZONE" on APR 25, SAT 4 pm <at> Films Divison of India, Mumbai

WELCOME TO THE 141st EDITION OF "THE fd ZONE" !

Gunners by V. B. Chandra

Produced by Films Division, 10 min

Who will be a Gurkha by Kesang Tseten
75 min / Nepal / 2012
(Screening followed by discussion with the curator: Pankaj Rishi Kumar) 

Synopsis
Britain recruited soldiers from Nepal through most of its years ruling India, and despite leaving the subcontinent in 1947, it still does. In this striking Nepali film we find out just what it takes to be recruited through a close up of a recruitment drive in Pokhara, western Nepal. And we find out how intensively selective the British are in a position to be. It is long odds – after three months, a first cull from 8,000 to 500; after another three weeks, a second and final cull to the fortunate 176. We see 17 to 21 year olds exercising ferociously; being asked why the British Army is in Afghanistan, then running a gruelling cross country course; writing exams; and learning to swim. The tension around the two culls, especially the final one, builds. You find yourself rooting for contenders. And that turns out to be as true, but in spades, for their families. When not only money but status is at stake – particularly when fathers, grandfathers, great-grandfathers have served – seemingly everything hangs on that final ‘yes’ or ‘no’. — Malcolm McKinnon

“While the film does not directly confront the larger issues at play here – the questions of politics and exploitation that arise when one country’s citizens are mercenaries for another – it captures the burden of history in the small dramas of these young men. This is what the film does best – it takes the audience beyond the Gurkha camp and into the lives of these young, hot-blooded Nepali men… Early on in the film, during the regional selection interview, one applicant is asked to list a few interesting points about himself. The young man, bare-chested and in shorts, sits ‘upright as a true Gurkha’ and says that he is ‘honest, intelligent and not boring’. While this might be true of the man, it is certainly a succinct description of the film.” — Weena Pun,kantipur.com 

… Gossip and prejudice lead some boys to think that certain castes are getting priority over others, or that some positions are up for sale. But the selection procedure is “free, fair and transparent,” something that the British commanders often repeat. Archive footage is alternated with recent scenes of the boys training and, in their spare time, singing. In this way, the film provides a broad perspective on a 200-year-old military tradition that still provides status to young Nepalese men…. Himalayan Film Festival

Kesang Tseten’s films have been screened at many international film festivals as well as regularly in FSA and the Kathmandu International Mountain Film Festival. Besides its selection at several international documentary film festivals, Who Will be a Gurkha had theatrical release in Nepal. Tseten wrote and co-directed Listen to the Wind, a fictional short for teenagers; his original screenplay Mukundo (Mask of Desire), co-produced by NHK/Japan and Nepal’s selection to the Academy Awards (2001), was given the Best Script Award by the Nepal Motion Pictures Association. He wrote the screenplay KARMA in 2004. He is a graduate of Dr Graham’s School in India, Amherst College and Columbia University in the US. www.shunyaafilms.com

Urgent query from shoma a chatterji

Dear Friends,

I have a very urgent and important question for all of you. Those who can, please respond to this asap.

I am writing a book on THE CINEMA OF BIMAL ROY. I have images to go with the mss because a book on cinema gains credibility and conviction if supported by images. My publishers who are considering the proposal right now, are wondering about the copyright permission for the images I must get. The book is about his "cinema" and not a biography and not an edited compilation of many articles written by different people.

My question is - Bimal Roy passed away in January 1966. In this sense, his films are in the public domain for nearly 50 years now. Under the new understanding within Cr eative Commons and even legally, do I need copyright permission for the use of the images I already obtained from the filmmaker's production house directly many years ago? The children are not responding to my mail or my query and I do not wish that my proposal be negatived only on the image issue.

PLEASE HELP!!!
