...felt some pressure about not having written for the last 3 days. but then, also got excited to know that i've had some hits already! got busy with a music video shoot. suprised?? well, its not any ol music video, but one for the troppen museum junior in amsterdam! they're featuring bombay over the next two n half years! and figured that instead of running an arbit set of images in a loop, why not make a story out of it and even got asha bhosale to sing a song...which i put pictures to!
my first music video...low budget, low on time given..hope it don't turn out too bad. but i enjoyed it thoroughly, made a few mistakes, learnt some new tricks, met some fab people...like sashi - our production guy, who'd run away from his home in benares 19years ago when he was just 13!! walked out of VT straight to gateway, lived there on the pavement and slept inside the dome! today, he is married to this bawi and has 2 sons (who go to st xaviers) and lives in lamington road!! took me back to my days at cry and my street children's project. over irani chai n brun maska, we dipped deep into the past leaving me completely awestruck n humbled.
with that kind of background, it wasn't suprising to see how he'd get things done and with a smile but without a bribe, so unlike the usual harami production guys...
and lisbet from the troppen museum junior...to think she's been been with the museum for 27years! her first job since she was 22!!
