In these days of cyber age, many youngsters find various social media as the best way to ventilate their thoughts and ideas. Â Short films are the new fad. Â A group of techies too joined the bandwagon with a short film titled ‘Mayakkannadi’.
‘Mayakannadi’, as the name suggests, is a story of a dream. Â A video parody, Mayakannadi is made by the employees of Accentia Technologies. Â The short film is penned and directed by Suryajith Kattappana while Dr. Shreejiith Shivanand did the cinematography and editing. Â The cast include Jose Antony, Unnikkrishnan, Sunil Nair, Binu Louis, Antony Kuriakose, Sathyajith, Santhosh Pillai, Anupama, and Hilta.
The short film takes a satirical view on the recent incidents in both film and cyber world. Â The wide chasm between dreams and reality is depicted through the mind of a daydreamer techie.
Director Suryajith said, “The fact that many people working in the company came forward expressing interest in various areas of film making amused me. Â Their interest inspired me to do ‘Mayakannadi’ in a very low budget within a limited time”. Â ‘Mayakkannadi’ is Suryajith’s fourth short film after ‘Spring after the fall’, ‘Pravesam’ and ‘Chuma’, which was an anti-tobacco ad film selected among other 15 ads by the state health department.
