Fear – it’s all in your mind, a short film, which has won laurels at the international level, is making waves at the cine circuit.
It revolves around the life of Jay, a young man, who falls prey to his habit of watching horror films. He experiences a series of unusual encounters.
This year, the film won the Da Vinci Official Selection at Andromeda Film Festival. In 2021, it bagged the best cinematography award from Memory Tree Canada. This year, the film is currently doing the film festival circuit and is scheduled for screening at the Sessions by Lift-Off Global Network.
In the movie, Jay has recently moved into a new apartment and started a new job. The introverted person does not like to socialize with people.
“As the movie is of the thriller genre, the camera shots will mostly be handy. So the film is shot with Nikon Z6 and Go-pro cameras,” reveals Tushar Unadkat, Executive Producer. Unadkat is an Indian Diaspora film, media and branding professional based in Canada.
Furthermore, he adds, “Dark themes for editing matches the storyline. With foley sounds, we created original music for the movie. Since there is no dialogue in the film, the music will play a significant role in developing that fright.”
The target audience for the movie will be majorly young adults who enjoy the thriller genre.
“Fear is not a usual short film. The climax is full of suspense, and the audience will have nail-biting thriller sequences throughout the movie,” claims Deep Pathak, writer, and director. “As the events unfold, one must watch it till the end to find out if the scary night ends or not.” concludes the filmmaker.
“Independent films often make you think about certain subjects or issues and feature challenging storylines that are more realistic and less escapist than in studio films.” explains Unadkat.
Deep is a first-time filmmaker, a recent Broadcasting Performance and Digital Media graduate from Conestoga College, Ontario, Canada.
“Old ways won’t open new doors,” as they say. Hence, I feel inspired working with aspiring artists with abundant enthusiasm and oozing creativity. I land up learning on every such project, and that gives a great sense of achievement,” confesses Unadkat.
Winning 22 international awards, Unadkat has worked with OSCAR-winning producers and editors, making an essential name in the Western Cross-Over Film Industry, earning credits on more than 30 films in his portfolio, and gaining rave reviews in the international film festival circuits.
