Deepan is an eminent short film maker. A promising talent .. Keep reading this interview of him..
Who was your inspiration...
I have a very vivid imagination and I love to tell stories – the combination led me into the realm of cinema.
Deepan's project "Oru Naal" is starred by Actress Neelima who is slated to be a 'good' short film artist, a tag grabbed by her poignant act in "Oru naal" (Directed by Deepan) , a short film based on 26/11 incident at Mumbai.

Comment this short
'Oru Naal' is quite close to my heart.. It blends in some of my real life too.. Neelima did her part perfectly with the character and am really happy for her winning the best actress award in a reality show.
I am quite choosy with the people i work with.. As of now, i have my own team ..
What are the difficulties in short film making in your opinion
Casting and Location
My Friends , team and Destiny
Its a tiresome process.. And that's one of the reasons, I restrict my movies to a single room..
What is the return out of your short film making..
I am not expecting any returns or trying for any returns as of now..
I am quite comfortable with thriller and drama.. Wish to experiment more with Romance as well ..
What are the essentials of a good short film ..
Base storyline and content makes the difference.. irrespective of the budget, cast and crew..
Manikandan(Director of Wind and Meendum Oru Punnagai), Balaji Mohan (Director of Meetai Veedu, Addi Tail) .. They play with human relationships and I admire their work.
7 in the line of amateur film makers
"Enrolling into film industry" .. should one wait for his day or it's on hands of luck..
Just wait for the day..
Hmmm.. I believe my films describe me in detail. Then why try to do the same in short lines ?
What do you think as your negative points ..
Should I wash my dirty linen in public ?
Are you a bad tempered director .. :P
ha ha ha .. this made me laugh.. well I am not.. I think I have enough patience
What's your future plans .. can we expect for a feature film soon..
" In future YES, but very soon.. NO..
My last project was Aasai and I am planning to make a 30 mins short film and a musical album on Feb 2012 "
What's your suggestion to budding short film makers ..
According to me.. Any artistic creation reflects the actual personality of the creator .. Make movies with a passion for art – fame and money are but only by products.
Special mention -
I really appreciate works of CDTV on recognizing talents..
