>>A group of film-buffs from Technopark is all set to do a socially-relevant movie, â€˜The Island Expressâ€™. Â The story line is inspired from a true event â€“Perumon train tragedy in 1988. Â A group of employees of SunTech are behind this venture. Â Â The team is inviting the participation of others too to their venture.
The team, led by its director Bijoy, has decided to make it a collaborative effort. Â Â Says Bijoy â€œFinance is a major component of a film project. Â Â We are not planning to put the entire risk of making this movie on a particular person. Â Rather it has to be distributed to make sure that we all are enjoying the process of film making and we want to extend that opportunity primarily to all you all who have been our true critics and well wishers so far which encouraged us always to sharpen our skills in film making. Let this be a movie made by us friends!.â€
The team explains, â€œIf you are interested with our program do register your names in www.megawave.in. Â Â We will contact you back and let us meet one day in a common venue where we will explain the complete process of how we are planning to make this happen. Â Also we are not just looking for financial partners – rather talents on other areas also. Â Â So if anyone of you want to be associated with us in any of the areas (like acting, singing, music composition, dubbing, art direction, stunts, animations and graphics, project management/production control etc). Â â€
The film is not an explanation for what had happened on that fateful day. Â Â Rather it is a fiction incident so as to make sure that the people who lost their lives in this accident are not forgotten, the team explains.
The shooting of the movie, titled â€˜Island Expressâ€™, will begin by end of the year and will hit theaters in 2012.
