Filmmaker-writer Bejoy Nambiar, who rose to fame in Tamil with Vikram’s David, says he is excited to make his debut in the web space as it gives filmmakers an avenue for telling different narratives.
He finds that very liberating. “I am extremely excited about this space and like most filmmakers, we are all trying to venture into this space because this platform gives us an avenue for all kinds of narratives to be told which is not really possible sometimes in a feature film format. As a filmmaker to explore that, it’s very liberating,” Nambiar said.
“I try and tell stories and to try engage with viewers in a different way which we wouldn’t be able to in a feature film format,” he added. The director’s first digital project — Flip — will soon premiere on Eros Now. “I approached it Flip like a feature film only. I didn’t think of it like ‘I am doing a digital project so, I should apply a different kind of a sensibility to it,” he said.
“I was approaching each story like I was making a short feature film. I think that really helped me shape the story also.... It’s not a long format show. Every episode is a new story,” he added. It is a series of four short stories, each telling the tale of many occurrences that cause a complete 180 degree turn around in the people, situation or perspectives inhabiting that tale. The anthology has four stories — Bully, Happy Birthday, Massage and The Hunt.
