The BOT SHORTS 2014 Short Film Festival



When one starts up growing admiring movies and getting to make VFX or movie industry as his choice, the first and foremost dream for every aspiring artist is to make a movie one day, it seems the ultimate standard goal of all artists for time memorial. However in the daily cycle of life, work to home, home to office, family, commitments, loans, mortgages, this unique dream of every artist never see’s the light of day inspite the best of intents, passion and drive and slowly over the years as our hair starts to go grey, this dream no longer remains in the fray.

One fine day  when we walked into the Studio, we were greeted by a dream – a dream opportunity to make a film and whats more you get to do it with randomly selected colleagues from office, the entire workforce, the entire office, technical, non technical, hr, admin, finance, all into the GAME of movie making. A big bounty announced to the winners, whats bigger though was the Sudden Dawn that we are going to be living the Dream albeit in a short way, who cares, we are going be MOVIE MAKING.

So 2 months of squeezing every possible minute in the tea break, lunch break, dinner break and what not we ended up with 10 short-films from mystery to charity to history to chemistry of friendship, one after the other kept rolling, each having some standout feature which made the short film different from the other. Who said artists are not good at time management, see us for these 2 months and u would feel that the Time Management Pundits could take a lesson or two from us. Well, that’s what passion does, it makes you add the little ‘extra’ to the ordinary.

Be it the award winning film titled “Irony” or the amazingly filmed “Capture”, each one stood out from the other. Lucky were the viewers to experience an amazing dose of fresh creativity and out of the box thinking.[/fusion_text]
