Story is a very elusive thing. It is like a wet fish that slips out your fist everytime you think you’ve caught it . Thats my simile of the day. 🙂

I have been reading a lot of books on Dramatic technique and story telling. WHile reading them i had a lot of euphoric realisations about the nature of story. But once you lay the books down ,you realise that those books are just praises of story. Commentaries of symphonies cant teach you how to write one. It can only help you to understand some of the ideas behind its creation.

So imagination is the only way to create art or story for that matter . Nothing can be a shortcut to creation. Not even theory and technique. Perhaps inspiration could be. But who can count on that.

end of abstract thinking for the day.


I am in india right now and am working on a film. Still haven’t got a chance to see the Madagascar with a regualar ticket buying audience. Glad to see that it has done well.

While here I am immersing myself with hong kong cinema particularly Wong Kar Wai. Really good stuff. Check it out.

no time..

We are in a “this is it” stage of production on Madagascar. I am learning heaps but unfortunalty i have no time to share it with you. Apologies to those to check everyday.
