Let me start my story with a big THANK YOU to everyone behind this masterpiece!!
Well, my story goes like this. Like every year there was a youth festival coming up here in Goa. All the young people participate in different events and competitions. These competitions include a Short-Film competition. I have always been wanting to make a short film, so I thought this is a great way to make a start.
I was very happy about it. I made my screenplay ready well in advance, arranged for a mobile phone (the film was supposed to be shot on a mobile phone having a 5MP camera). On that day, we were given two hours time to shoot the film and then 30 minutes to edit it. As I had my plan ready, I finished the shooting in about 70-75 mins. I then edited it (With the help of professional editors which the organizing committee had provided.) The film was ready!
Until the next day I was just imagining the feeling that I would feel if I won the first prize. Some doubt or fear did come to my mind, but I deliberately pushed it away.
Next morning I went to the place, and was confident enough. After some events, the judges of the short film competition arrived on the stage to announce the result. I made my way to the first row. They first announced the 3rd prize winner. It was not us. My friend looked at me with a question in his eyes. They announced the 2nd prize winner… My friend again looked at me with “we have lost it” look! I still had my ears towards the judges… And that was the time they announced the 1st prize winners.. And it was US!!!! I jumped on my feet and felt so so so so happy!!!!!! One of my friends told me that I had tears in my eyes!!!
Thank you Rhonda Byrne for making me aware of The Secret and The Power of the universe… Waiting for ‘Magic’ now.. 🙂
P.S. – It’s not easy to harness the power of the universe. It took me two years and am still working on it.. But surely i’m progressing!!
