- What is your criteria for selection of short film projects for production ..
Selection of short films is based on the theme and content of the story , and I will produce those short films which is feasible and without any constraints.
" I loved Ganesh anna’s working style and that inspires me & boosted me up "
2. Is your production activity commercialized ? And is that your profession ..
Its in process, basically I am working in a private concern in Coimbatore. Production activity, film making is my passion and part time activity so working it out only in week ends.
Yes I have worked as a co producer for the Tamil short film DIYA which is directed by 19 year old JAMEER BASHA which has been screened in AVM studios ; MANKATHA FAME director VENKAT PRABHU , KALAIMAMANI SATHYA PRIYA madam were the chief celebrities who saw the premiere shows and appreciated us for the product which is gave by us.
Now I am producing and acting in a Tamil short film THOOVAL which is directed by an engineering college student SHERRY BOSCO from my native Coimbatore ….
This is all because of my director O4p GANESH KUMAR MOHAN and my college senior my friend NANBAN VENKAT SUNDAR. Both of them have supported me a lot at every moment.
First I met them only in a social media FACEBOOK , I approached GANESH KUMAR MOHAN for acting in his short films… once I joined in his GREENHORNS FILM banner I loved Ganesh anna’s working style and that inspires me & boosted me up to here as days gone I became a PRODUCTION MANAGER in GREENHORNS FILMS which is owned by GANESH KUMAR Anna, where I learned a lot by the team members of 'ghf' cinematographer KB PRABHU and artist VENKAT SUNDAR …this is how I was driven into this stream. GANESH KUMAR MOHAN "thalaiva " you are great .......
