RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW- contest

The contest is to create a poster for the movie RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW
and to come up with a punch line for the same.

Synopsis:
A movie about the interlocking lives and loves of six characters.
Clearly the forties saw its youth obsessing over nationalism; the
sixties youth did so over Marxist views and the new millennium
showcases a new breed that obsesses over love and career.

This is a film about “Generation – Y” – About how we fall in and out of
love in a country where thousands of people pass by each other every
day, where strangers meet, where relationships come together and fall
apart. The men and women of the story are driven by desire, searching
for love and identity. These new-age kids are in no hurry to settle
down and get married. They love the excitement of the dating game and
the pursuit of a perfect lover and partner, in the underlying hope of
eventually finding true love and happiness.

This is a fast, racy, roller-coaster comedy, which showcases the youth
of our country, like it has never been seen before on screen. It will
be punched with new age music that will resonate throughout the film,
setting the pulse of this fast new generation that lives fearlessly for
only themselves…for the pleasure of the moment – right here, right now.
The film will be an exciting, young and fresh perspective on this fast
growing metropolitan phenomenon… the world of “Generation Right Here,
Right Now”

– The backdrop of the film is Ahmedabad

– Genre: Urban Romantic Comedy

What should be in the poster?
Anything! Let your imagination go on over drive …
Avoid any objectionable concepts (nudity etc) in your poster(s).
Your posters can be images or just art or anything – the whole point is
to keep your eye on this: Can this poster be used in the publicity for
RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW?
Can this poster be put on billboards, in print, in advertisements etc?

What are the specifications of the poster?
The poster should be a jpeg image. The size of the poster should not be
more than 475pixels wide and 500 pixels height.

After you’ve made your poster, mail it to rhrnthefilm@ gmail.com

Workshop on Modern art form and Tribal world

Ranchi Film Club organises a Workshop

on Modern art form and Tribal world trib

by Mahadev Toppo

on 3rd May 2009 at 2.30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Venue-International Library and Cultural Center, near Sujata Cinema, Club Road, Ranchi

The main theme of workshop is, how tribal world has been portrayed in various art forms, and how the meaning would be changed when the subject itself becomes the author of the art and the art form, as for instance the great documentary master piece ‘Nanook of the North’- what if Nanook would have done this film by himself…. ? Now Dalit and tribal literature are emerging very forcefully challenging the casteist and racist paradigm. Thanks to contradiction in capitalism in the age of globalization at least— digital technology is some how available to common people. ಓದನ್ನು ಮುಂದುವರೆಸಿ
