N7Films is a stepping stone towards the conceptualization and inception of independent filmmaking on shoestring budgets.
The ideation is to amalgamate like minded creatives from every sphere of cinema, be it actors, directors, cinematographers, composers who are into progressive forms of story telling wherein they pour in their talent for production of short films, documentaries and commercials that adhere to both commercial viability and artistic credibility.
The first production under N7Films, saw Rahul Bose as the narrative for a 30 minute documentary on the drug infestation in Punjab, titled Glut - The Untold Story of Punjab. I was the cinematographer, editor and co-director of the film. Being a non-profit initiative, it was released online on youtube and vimeo, making it possible to be viewed by over 2 lakh people globally. It’s the official selection for the Sikh International Film Festival, New York, Sikh Lens Film Festival, Los Angeles and holds a place amongst the list of Top Documentary Films. Currently it's being re-edited and the music is being completely overhauled to target local and international film festivals for the year 2012.
Recently, N7Films produced a commercial for Pepsi and two for Hindustan Times. Pre-production on two short fictions are underway which shall go on floors in mid November.
