As a filmmaker, one is always looking out for funds to execute their concepts on the screen. This mammoth task becomes even bigger when you try to tell a story that has not been told earlier and doesn’t fit into the commercial space. Hence CROWDFUNDING
Our Film “The Broken Gift” is a short film that me and my team has been working on for the last three months day in and day out, we have all pooled in our resources and managed to shoot the film really well. We hired all professionals from the film industry be it Actors, Editors, cinematographers or any other members in the crew.
The film is inspired from a real story that happened some time back in the city of Kolkata. The weird situations that play out during the film makes it a one of its kind, keeping the potential of the film in mind we need to do justice to the film during the post-production and marketing phases as well. We need to raise INR 2,00,000/- to complete the film and send it to film festivals. Please contribute to our campaign help us bring THE BROKEN GIFT to life.
ABOUT OUR FILM
THE BROKEN GIFT
The film is a mystery thriller that tries to comment on the fine line between love and obsession.
There is always a fine line between love and obsession, love ensures freedom while obsession often leads to possession. Love always stays eternal, It has no age, no boundaries, it’s the beauty that lies between two souls. A lack of freedom and a feeling of possession makes life so claustrophobic that even death would seem legit.
Shivang, a young dynamic guy is desperately looking for a Taxi under the midnight sky. When he finds one, he starts persuading the taxi driver to take him to his desired destination. Disinterested at first, the driver finally agrees to take the man to his destination motivated by a lucrative offer.
As the journey follows, we see a strange attitude is being carried out by Shivang, making the driver suspicious. Amidst the talks, the driver gets to know that the man wants to reach home as soon as possible. He wants his mother to forgive him and settle out the bitter relationship between both of them. On reaching the destination, which is a very eerie and deserted location, Shivang puts an unusual request in front of the taxi driver.
What is the request?

Why has Shivang put forward such a request?
Why is his mother upset with Shivang?
