SHADOW – The Team

Posted: August 31, 2010 in Uncategorized

The Shadow team comprises of Srihari Prabaharan as the director,vfx supervisor,editor,sound mixing. Jit as the Art Director and Actor, Paarijaat as the Writer and Actor, and Abhishek and Moumita in supporting roles.

COSTANSIN Films is a conglomerate, comprising of Srihari Jit and Paarijaat. All of them are employed in leading IT industries as software engineers. Its while searching for an avenue to let out their pent up creativity, that they met. SHADOW is the second project taken up by them.

SHADOW is unique in a lot of ways. Its a movie made without spending a single dime.It will be rich in Visual Effects Sound Mixing and Editing.Srihari Prabaharan is a trained Visual Effects artist from HollywoodCameraWorks.
The whole story is woven around the house where Jit, Paarijaat and Avishek stay as tenants. The film was shot with Sony xr520v full Hd.  Sony Vegas and after effects were used for post production purposes. Sound for dubbing was recorded mostly in a mobile phone and a Sony handheld voice recorder, otherwise live recording was adopted. All the actors in the movie are software engineers, with no experience whatsoever in film making.

Challenges were countless. The team tried to stand up to all of them, and get the best output possible; with all the shortcomings.

It would only be fitting to thank some people whose enthusiasm helped the team along; Arpitha Rajashekhara, Manish Dash and Ashutosh. They stood by the team during their lows and urged them forwards, and helped in countless ways. Thanks for all your support and faith in the team.

Shadow is a short film directed by Srihari Prabaharan. Its a horror – thriller film, based loosely on a short story by Paarijaat, of the same name. The film features Jit and Paarijaat in the lead roles.

The film is about a call centre employee, named Arjun, living in a house with other room mates. He’s home all day and at office all night. His roomies, being IT employees, are at office all day. So Arjun lives a typical lonely life.

Arjun finds a notebook in a shelf in the house.It bears the name of one Krishnan. The notebook is full of sketches, that ranges from magnificent to bizarre.

The bizzare events that happened in the life of Arjun, over the time, makes the film “Shadow”.
