A MONDAY MORNING @WORK
(A software firm in Bangalore)

How's your weekend?
Me, I shot few scenes for my kannada feature film!
OH WOW! A feature film? Seriously? Amazing!

AFTER FEW WEEKS,
How's your shoot progressing?

Going on! We went outdoor this weekend.
Wow! Isn't it tiring? How do you manage all this?

AFTER FEW MONTHS
How's your film shaping up? I am following you guys on Facebook! Would love to be part of your team!

Amazing Isn't it? This is what, we 'weekend movie makers' do

SELFIE ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಕಿಕ್...

SELFIE ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಕಿಕ್... is an independent feature length kannada film being made by film enthusiasts during their weekends. This team is put together over a period of two years based on their creative strengths. This team do not possess any formal training in film making, but are determined and passionate about film-making.

Phani Kotaprolu, the visionary behind Weekend Movie Makers, firmly believes film-making is all about commonsense, has setup Weekend Movies Makers with the support of his childhood friend, Navin Kaipu and his network of friends.

The team he built opines with his view - "We live in a world where technology is very much accessible that there's no excuse for you not to be making films on the weekends with your smartest group of friends, shooting with the equipment that can be easily procured and asking friends and colleagues for favors".

We accrued funds through our network of friends to start our first production SELFIE ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಕಿಕ್... which went on to floors on April, 2015 and has completed its talkie portion and other post-production activities, got censored and is releasing in August 2016.

Filmmaking is all about commonsense

This is what we 'weekend movie makers' firmly believe in & do follow

why make a film with tiny budgets, no stars and with cheap equipment?

We 'weekend movie makers' are trying to do which we cannot do, in order that we may learn how do it. Perfection does not touch us, passion does... in all its chaos and beauty. We have the opportunity to try new things, new people, new cameras, new stories and new techniques to achieve something that means something to us and to those who we choose to work with. Everybody has to start from somewhere, and most talent comes from sheer hard work, we are creating our own platform.

We may not end up making a master piece, may not be technically brilliant but with something that's just okay, just passable - something that makes a little sense.

why weekend film making?

We at 'Weekend Movie Makers' are not professional film-makers. Each one of us have a day job (most of us are from software industry) with a passion towards films. Most people refrain from doing certain things thinking "you shouldn't do a thing just because you can". But we thought... "you don't know if you can unless you do". We are in a place now where technology is so cheap that there is no excuse not to be making films on the weekends with the available equipment and asking friends and colleagues for favors.

Weekend film making is a very inexpensive way to make a feature length film. We started #SELFIE ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಕಿಕ್... with almost no budget. Initial weekends the budget has come from our pockets and then we took to buddy funding. We have the weekdays to raise the funds either approaching our buddies or from our pockets. We have made 'Weekend Movie Making' an enjoyable challenge. Each one of us take on multiple roles as we value money, we value ourselves and value our skills.

what's the current status of #SELFIE ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಕಿಕ್... ?

#SELFIE ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಕಿಕ್... is in its final stages of post-production. We are planning to take it to censor in the third week of May, 2016 and gearing it up for release in JUNE 2016.

We are planning for the promotional activities and are looking for some help. If you are interested to be part of #SELFIE ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಕಿಕ್... please visit our Buddy Funding section and contribute whatever amount possible.

be a buddy funder

As our budget is carefully worked out every rupee of it needs to be utilized optimally. Payment gateways or crowd-funding platforms have their cut. Though a little tedious, lets do it through online bank transfer. Please fill in the following details and we will revert to you with our bank details. You can also email us at buddyfunding@selfiekannadafilm.com

This platform is clearly for those who are passionate about films and are awaiting right opportunity. We have not approached a single producer as we do not want to compromise anything. We understand all of this needs to be done with a planned budget. Our approach is BUDDY FUNDING, financially funded by friends who wish to support our dream being made into a feature film.

CAST OF SELFIE

Awesome cast of SELFIE ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಕಿಕ್... very passionate about acting, performance on par with pros
The lead cast of #SELFIE was handpicked by conducting multiple low-profile auditions across Bangalore. The search was on for someone who had not learn't acting, rather born with it. We are glad they are part of this project because they believed in it, rather than for the money.
