Thyagarajan S
I have done a short film using friends, family and neighbors as actors; handy cam to shoot the same and used trial version software on my PC to edit and finish this Short film. I suppose it is not a bad effort if not a great piece of work.

The film is on the emotions a boy born in a “super-achieved-family” passes through when he has scored 91% in his 12th class exams; commendable but not enough to get into top colleges. He feels he has let down his folks, feels suicidal and almost decides to commit suicide. He is not ready to accept the consoling words and advices thrown at him by his uncle. When he overhears his father, he gets a new perspective and drops his idea of suicide.

It starts with a Tirukkural which roughly means “Be born with Praise/Fame , else it is better to be not born at all” giving the premise/ question

And ends with another Tirukkural which can have two interpretations

a) The decision to work hard/ put ones’ efforts in his job/ Karma yogam is the highest praise/ has no equivalent fame

b) The effort one puts to protect and prosper one’s own family has no equivalent praise/ fame.

The first interpretation directed to the son’s final decision and second interpretation to signify the father’s role in changing the decision

This will have its own flaws- technical (in shooting and editing the piece) and in narration. Being my first effort, I had lot of learning ,but your feedback and inspiration is more important for future endeavors
